Although this is my photography site, this post has absolutely nothing to do with photography. You may or may not know that I'm actually a professional musician by trade. I play drums and this guy has blown me away with his ability to multi-task. I play a lot of different styles of music, including afro-cuban stuff which definitely pushes the hand-foot coordination, but what he's doing is something different, not just putting things into place rhythmically, but also melodically while at the same time singing lyrics and not just a melody. It's impressive, very impressive. I'm definitely a fan of Paris Monster, this New York based drum and bass duo is pretty amazing. To see what I'm talking about check out the live performance of "Vision Complete."
My buddy Mike just posted this on Facebook and I thought it was awesome. These two kids from Flatbush (Brooklyn), New York have a great sense of style and definitely surprise you by their age and the music they're interested in. They must have some really cool supportive parents.
Two of my friends just posted this video on Facebook and I thought I would post it here because it's pretty amazing. It'll make you think twice before you judge someone or tell them they can't do something. This guy inspires me both as a musician and a human being.
Awhile back I was talking to my good friend Brian Lima, who is also an amazing photographer, about whose work he follows. To my surprise he told me Bryan Adams was one of his favorite photographers, to which my response was "Bryan Adams, the musician?" Turns out Bryan Adams is an extremely well established fashion/portrait photographer and a lot of people don't realize it. He's had a very successful career in music, but even without his music income he'd be pretty busy as a working photographer. He's worked on campaigns and has been published in a lot of popular magazines. You should check out some of his work and you'll see why he's been successful in this arena outside of the music industry www.bryanadamsphotography.com.
