  TONY MOTTRAM'S SHOT OF THE MONTH
METALWAVE 2013
October 2013

This month's pix come from the first brilliant Metalwave festival at the Circus Tavern, Essex organised by Hayley Cray Elgood and Jeff Braithwaite of Chariot.

I was there to shoot some Chariot video and get stills for anyone who might review the gig or need images and take some British Lion memorabilia down for the Clive Burr CliveAid charity auction.

Let's hope this fest is the first of many! Rumours are there will be a Metalwave Midlands gig organised.

It was also great to see a lot of the ex-Maiden team, Dougie on Sound, Dave Lights, Loopy and Chris Lang...

It was a shame I missed Headrush and Midnight Messiah but there is a chance they might be on the Midlands bill. Looking forward to it!

And look out for TOSELAND who I also photographed this week...

NOW AEROSMITH FANS CAN HAVE THEIR NAME IN FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.

As well as shooting the band several times in England, this collection includes images from a session at the band's rehearsal room in Boston. Littered throughout is a mixture of live and off stage photos including a selection of photos taken at London's famous Marquee club when they were joined on stage by Jimmy Page.

This limited edition hardback book, presented in a flight case and printed on silk paper, is an opportunity to own a unique selection of photos, most of which have never seen the light of day before.

This unique item is presented in an aluminium flight case and will be published in late November. Earlybird subscribers who order by 31st October will have their name printed within a dedicated page in the book.
