There are so many things…. In life that you do…. Saying to yourself I will remember this… For me today was one of them…. Most of you know that for the last two years I have had the opportunity to shoot photos of Davey Pattison….. Davey is a remarkable voice behind the bands Gamma, Robin Trower, & Ronnie Montrose…. I was at the Oakland Coliseum way back when I believe it was Day on the Green there were many great bands there… Davey was there with Ronnie Montrose……. and a whole bunch of other bands… I believe that would’ve been in August 1981….. I don’t remember many of the bands that were there I think  38 special… And others…. Gamma was a huge band in the Bay Area with many hits the most popular being Voyager…… well today I had the chance to sit down and visit with Davey at his home he told stories that were so fantastic….. How we met Bill Graham… How the music business is changed… Especially after Bill Graham’s death…. I have this one photo from today Davey sitting in his chair and behind him is a wall of photos… And he took the time to explain many of them to me places he grew up… Where his grandparents met standing on a corner… A photo of where he played his very first gig….. It was so very cool to sit there and listen…. Davey has formed a new band…. Gamma + and soon will be more local shows around the Bay Area…. I of course will tell everyone when Davey is playing…. All I can say is you you have the opportunity don’t miss the davey show….. Oh and I got this click with Davey at home on the couch… this man can’t take a photo without looking cool…… so where is my story ….After leaving the show “Day on the Green….. Well  who would’ve thought that I would be sitting in the front room talking to Davey Pattison…….. life is good
