4/10/2012 – Jimmy Kimmel Show, Hollywood CA
Making their first TV appearance behind the new record “Apocalyptic Love” (due May 22), Slash took his band to the Jimmy Kimmel show on Tuesday night to rock his new single “ You’re a Lie.” You can read more about the release of the record here.
I was honored to be the first photographer to shoot the band in their first US appearance, and of course it was a fun day on the Kimmel set.
I hung out with old crew friends and even helped uncase gear and set the backline! The band showed up for sound check and ran through a couple songs, then they did camera blocking. As usual at the Kimmel show, you can’t shoot the first two songs- as their cameramen don’t want anyone in their way-after all is about the TV appearance! After another hang with the guys, and as it got darker, it came time for Slash and his band to take the outdoor stage. They came out and KILLED the packed back- lot with the following songs.
You’re a Lie
Back From Cali
Slither (Velvet Revolver song)
Paradise City (G n’ R song)
I want to say thanks to the following people:
Slash, Myles, Todd, Brent, Frankie, Varner, Jodi, Pooch, Capt. Kuntz, Ian, Ace, Pete Andrea and Tater
