Join renowned music photographer Neal Preston for a virtual thrill-ride through 50 years of working with many of the most famous rock bands of all time. Preston will talk about what REALLY happens on rock and roll tours- and it’s not as glamorous as people think. If you want to know how it felt working with Led Zeppelin, Queen. the Who, and so many others, this is the talk for you. Working within the rarified air of rock and roll royalty is not easy; in fact it’s anything but. Neal Preston not only talks about deadlines, stress, and ego management…he talks about things you will never hear anywhere else: the protocol for being on stage, why you should never (or rarely!) bring a guest backstage, what it’s like to have a 49 year case of jet lag that never dissipates, and why a photographer’s best friends on tour are the roadies. Learn why you should never act like you are a member of the band. Find out how some very memorable photos were made, what equipment he used, how he arranged photo shoots on top of glaciers and so much more. Preston also loves fielding questions from the audience, and the answers will be honest and true. And one other thing: be prepared to laugh the whole way through, because Neal Preston doesn’t go anywhere without his sense of humor fully intact. This is as close to being on tour with Led Zeppelin as you will ever get, and by the end of the talk you will feel like he does every day- exhilarated and exhausted.
