ROD STEWART RUNNING TO BACKSTAGE DRESSING ROOM AT THE SPECTRUM ARENA (10/12/1975)
ROD STEWART & FACES: THE SPECTRUM (October 12, 1975)
On several occasions I brought my brother backstage to meet some of his favorite performers. Rod Stewart being one of them. Moments before this photo was taken, Rod was posing for a photo with my brother, arms draped around each others’ shoulders.
My camera jammed. Rod was in a hurry and tried to walk away. My brother grabbed his hand and wouldn’t let go. Rod tried to break free. I frantically tried to fix the camera. My brother hung onto Stewart’s arm as he tried to shake loose; all the while, my brother continued smiling into the camera. Suddenly Stewart escaped, and began running up the hallway with a glass of wine in his right hand.
As he ran toward me, my camera began to work again. I quickly panned the camera as he ran past. The picture has an artistic impressionism quality to it. Although, I didn’t get the shot of Stewart and my brother, we did get one zany story and a great Spectrum memory.
