From David Sukovaty:

I guess if there is an outline for a story it might be how the staging has changed since I first saw Paul and how fans are dedicated to photographing him. I didn't think of photographing him right away. I first saw him with Wings 1976 in Rotterdam, Holland. I drew the stage and made my first setlist. I didn't see him again until "Flowers In The Dirt" opening night Chicago 89, The video screens weren't working! Then Ames. It was a stadium and the video screens were working and it changed everything. Then Arrowhead 2nd row center 93. That experience changed everything. He was singing right to you. Cameras weren't allowed then and you were lucky to get a few shots like in Denver "Driving Rain Tour". It wasn't until later that it was impossible to stop people from bringing in cameras. My opportunity came when VIP allowed me to photograph. 2014 Paul's Out There Tour was the tour of top tour of the summer. The Top Ten cities were his and Lincoln was # 11. That was an epic performance and photographing was a dream. The idea that you would then be able to use them in a story I still find amazing, and proud that it could happen. I was really impressed by the staging in Lincoln. I'd seen several presentations by then. I was in the front row in Lincoln and was able to watch the camera operators. The lighting, staging was all very precise. It really was an education in musicology to be that close. I think that same insight is continued in these photos. One of my credits is the live photography for Robin Trower's '20th Century Blues" CD which was a special. At that time very few photographs had appeared of him on albums and there was my work representing him. This was the 10th time I've seen Paul and another opportunity to photograph him. I'm still in wonder of some of these results.
