This was a Great tour, Great band , Great people. It was way way too
short though. 3 Weeks of Rehearsal in LA and 12 shows in Japan and that
was it. I had worked with David when he was with Whitesnake. I was the
original Lighting Designer with the original Whitesnake. Wish I had
some pictures from those days. They were a lot of fun to work with very
Jimmy I had never worked with before so it was a real treat to tour
with him. I loved watching him on stage. I would have to say of all
the musicians I have worked with I thought Jimmy Page had the best stage
presence of anybody. Just something about him that was unique. As soon
as he walked on stage and put on his Guitar it was all over.
I got the idea for the design from a visit to the Museum of Anthropology
in Mexico City. There is a large Architectural structure in the middle
of the Museum grounds that triggered the idea. I would love to use a
variation of it again for another act as it was a really good design
and I never got to use it to its full potential. As you will see from
the pictures this design makes a statement.
Speaking of the pictures I have to thank Ross Halfin for giving me these
pictures and for very kindly allowing me to use them on my site. Here
is a link to his site. Go and have a look. He has a very very impressive
record of his work in the music business.
