“Shooting live music is something few photographers do really well. I just discovered one day I was good at it. You can’t teach it, you can’t learn it, just do it.
The recipe is as follows: one part love of photography, one part love of music, one part love of theater and theatrical lighting, one part hero worship, one part timing and 95 parts instinct.”
“Neal has made a magnificent career, and more importantly a life out of the passion that lives in every frame he shoots. The artist themselves have always sparked not just to his enormous skills but to his personality. Within minutes, it seems, his subjects feel Neal’s deep knowledge of the music, his grand sense of humor and his love of every cable, and every crew member that makes a tour come alive.” — Cameron Crowe
