Photoblogging: Moogfest 2012
Wielding my Official Photo Pass™, I took a bunch of shots at Moogfest with my old-fashioned 35mm camera. The results were less than stellar, owing in part to the fact that you can’t easily get super-fast ISO1600 film liked I used back in the olden days. Anyway, that’s my excuse. Here are some photo highlights; my written summary of the festival will appear soon.

A very sexy Moog Voyager. I spent a lot of time fiddling with it.
Magnetic Fields, seated and destined mostly to remain thus.

In Spring 2023 he is co-teaching a history of Rock 'n' Roll at UNC Asheville's College for Seniors. He also researches and authors liner notes for album reissues -- more than 30 to date -- and co-produced a reissue of jazz legend Julian "Cannonball" Adderley's final album. His first book, Reinventing Pink Floyd: From Syd Barrett to The Dark Side of the Moon was published by Rowman & Littlefield in 2018, and in paperback in 2019.
