The Rolling Stones Exhibitionism

I went to the Rolling Stones “Exhibitionism” on opening day (Nov. 12) and again today (Feb 19) with my friend Steve. This is awesome. There are replicas of the lads’ messy apartment in London from the early 60s, a “backstage area” and even a reproduction of a recording studio. There’s a section on album artwork, another with scale models of their elaborate stage sets from the Steel Wheels, Bridges to Babylon and Voodoo Lounge tours. A whole room of Andy Warhol artwork, another featuring stage costumes spanning their entire career. Lots of video and audio displays and a 3-D movie at the end of “Satisfaction.” You can also see their guitars, a drum kit and notebooks with Mick’s hand-written lyrics to “Miss You,” “Lies,” “Some Girls” and many other songs. My favorite part was a mixing board where you can put on headphones and turn each band member’s instrument playing track up or down on about 10 different audio tracks, including “Start Me Up,” “Angie,” “Rocks Off” and “Sympathy for the Devil.”

‘Explore New York’ article for Dental Tribune

For this year’s “today” show daily, published by Dental Tribune on-site at the Greater New York Dental Meeting, I wrote an article for out-of-towners about what they can do for fun during their visit to the big city.

The meeting, which is an annual event in the dental industry, started just after Thanksgiving. I was the designated exhibit hall photographer for Dental Tribune, taking pictures at many of the company booths during the event. On one of the days I also covered a breakfast hosted by Henry Schein Dental, a company that is making a big push into digital technology.

The High Line

One of my favorite places to walk is along the High Line. It’s an elevated rail platform on the west side of Manhattan that trains ran on was used many decades ago to transport freight. For years it sat empty until, finally, it was turned into a park. Today you can climb stairs or take an elevator to get to it, and you can walk all the way from Gansevoort Street to West 34th. On a nice day, it’s not to be missed.
