Good morning from Huntington Beach – where it seems that my wedding season for this year, 2011 and all the way into 2012 – just after the London Olympics is about to not only take off — but really be a wild and fun ride. I feel so blessed that quite a few couples have invited me into their lives to be capture the memories that will be happening throughout the process.
And, since I’ve been traveling down memory lane a lot lately – I’ve been listening to quite a few heavy metal and big hair bands of the ’80s. Can I just say that some of the heavy metal bands from the ’80s totally and I mean like totally tubular rock. Wholly guacamole!
So here’s one that I really think rocked the entire past two decades even with quite a few bad things happening along their career as a band…
I’m turning the clock back not to the ’90s, not to the ’80s, but all the way back to the ’70s. The year is 1977 and in month of November, the first Def Leppard rehearsal takes place in a spoon factory near Bramall Lane, Sheffield (UK). Lead singer Joe Elliott, bass player Rick “Sav” Savage, guitarist Pete Willis, and drummer Tony Kenning just renamed the band from Deaf Leopard (a name first coined by Joe Elliott at school in 1975) to Def Leppard. At Christmas, the band perform their first gig for six friends. Six songs are played, including covers by David Bowie, Thin Lizzy and their own original “MISTY DREAMER”.
But before I present you with this week’s feature of my West Coast Wednesday Video Of The Week and you’re thinking… Hey – I’d really like to get to know this rockin Orange County Wedding Photographer in Huntington Beach, California, feel free to Contact Me or send me an email direct at firstname.lastname@example.org.
