Tweet It wasn’t on my bucket list but, in hindsight, it feels like it should have been: “I want to irk Gloria Steinem and cheer Miley Cyrus in one day!” Imagine telling someone that! I’m sure the response would be “Not a chance.” Despite the odds, on Saturday, I managed to achieve both of these […]

Tweet Yesterday was Lady Gaga’s 28th birthday, and my designing friend Stacy Lomman and I celebrated by going to the first of seven Gaga concerts at Roseland Ballroom. Gaga’s shows are Roseland’s swan song: The venue, which has been on West 52nd Street since 1958, will be razed and replaced with a residential tower. Roseland […]

Tweet I wrote about Eurythmics member Dave Stewart in 2007, mentioning that I’d interviewed him in the mid-’90s. During the photo shoot for the story, we — Dave, me, the crew — got thrown out of a hotel ladies’ room. This week, I stumbled across the Daily News item that ran after the bathroom “scandal.” […]

Tweet After seeing Neil Young perform at Carnegie Hall on Monday, I felt like I vaguely remembered Neil having a quarrel with MTV in the ’80s. I was right! It was in 1988, when Neil released a video for the anti-commercialism song, “This Note’s for You,” which made fun of major advertisers both lyrically and […]

Tweet Don’t you love it when things that are disappointing at first ultimately work out for the best? I was bummed out when the Neil Young and Crazy Horse concert I was supposed to go to over Labor Day weekend was canceled. But if it hadn’t been, I might not have gotten tickets to see […]

Tweet Someone said to me recently, “You go to SOOOO many concerts,” but I don’t think I’ve seen all THAT many this year. I’m not going to shows every week or checking out every up-and-coming performer. I know people who do that. That said, I do attend more concerts now than I did in my […]

Tweet Over the years, I — like a lot of people — have rolled my eyes over Kanye West‘s antics and outbursts. But, as I always say, “Never Is the Next New Thing™.” In other words, things that are turn-offs at first can become appealing after repeated exposure.  Kanye started winning me over in ways […]

Tweet After years of taking shiteous concert photos followed by some sporadic but significant improvement (see Eminem, Skylar Grey, Beyonce and Rihanna … but not Depeche Mode), I now go into full-on photojournalist mode at concerts. On one hand, I want to just enjoy the concert. On the other hand, I feel compelled to make […]

Tweet A few hours before the Nine Inch Nails concert at Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Monday, I was at the gym thinking, “I guess I’ll just wear my Damien Hirst skull t-shirt and jeans AGAIN.” I wear that combination a lot. Then Madonna’s 1984 “Lucky Star” video came on the music-video station I was […]

Tweet I didn’t watch last night’s Emmys live, because I was at a concert. I sure didn’t miss anything fashion-wise. I thought last year’s Emmys were uninspiring from a style perspective, but this year was even worse. There was exactly one gown that I would want to wear myself: Downton Abbey actress Michelle Dockery’s red-and-burgundy […]
