As I arrived at the Occupy Movement site in Montreal, Canada, a group of "Robin Hoods" were heading out on a protest action. We marched four blocks and into the lobby of a bank. The police did not interfere as the group read their statement (in French), asking for a tax on the top 1%. They sang, then departed, causing much of the traffic outside and many people to stop and wonder. Several of the activists are people with full-time jobs and families, who made time every day in their busy lives to participate in the movement to Occupy. Many thanks to Seth and his co-organizers.
At the Egyptian Theater, Hollywood, 2011. With fellow directors, writers and thespians, Jon Voight received a special award for his portrayal of Pope John Paul II. The event was actually fun; I met some very nice photographers and actors. I hope they ask me to shoot it again, even though I swore I would never be a Paparazzo! Ah well, that was in my youth...

Rockabilly...punk...sailor rock...you can't classify these guys. Powerful, funny but most of all....honest. They bring the fun back into good old rock and roll. But again, we can't classify...
With Captain Sean Doe, Dino, Urban Commando and special guest Xander Schloss of Circle Jerks, this Hootenanny was indeed a special one. Do they have alter egos? Who doesn't? And maybe that's their whole point: be honest and true to yourself. That makes the world a better place. Images licensed through ZUMA PRESS.
