From memory most of my rock photos were Nikon F2, push processed Tri X film (400 ISO up to 1600 at times)

Did you go to the memorial concert for John Power (bass player for Jo Jo Zep, Hippos and more) recently held in Sydney?

There's one coming up in Melbourne in March. I have a few good pics of him and Joe from back in the 80's.

Yes I did and it was fantastic, I've been a long time Hippos fan, ever since they formed and been to dozens of their gigs, I got to see John Power play with Jo Jo Zep back in the 70s at a 2jj concert at Parramatta Park with Johns big voice a stand out and he really got my attention, I took a Hippos CD to the Sydney HiFi Clubs meeting last Sunday and gave John a good Rap, I know it went down well with the Punters there, well most of them anyway,

 

I took some pictures, not my best as I had the ISO set on low and that's not good in low light with Olympus, I'd love to see your pics, hey my sister had The Hippos play at her going away party when she left Sydney back in 1992 as well,

Great shots Ian, you must have a lot of pictures of gigs, I have as well BUT wished I had a decent Camera back in the 70s-80s thanks for posting these up as they are now history

 

 

Here's another favourite pub band of mine, The Cyril B Bunter band and I've been to many gigs ever since 1980, I took these shots about 6 years ago

I used to go drink cider at John Hueys and listen to the Foreday Riders in 1967 early 1968 down at The Rocks on leave from Holdsworthy before getting shipped out to Vietnam.

Nice version and 2 great Australian musicians, Fiona Boyes always puts on a great show and I love Russell Morris

Wow that's a long time ago now Mick and I could imagine they would have been great gigs, I went to their 50th Anniversary Gig only a couple of years ago now and it was a real special night, I've been to lots of their shows since 1980 and always good, I hired them to play at my wedding back in 1996, they really made that a great wedding and my wife and myself did a bridal Walts to a slow Blues, they are still going strong and are absolute Australian Blues Legends,
