One of the coolest things I can experience as a photographer is being welcomed into the home of legendary musicians. RollingStone.com gave me the chance to do a home-based shoot with Tommy Stinson – you may have heard of him playing in The Replacements and a little band called Guns ‘n’ Roses. I headed out to his Hudson, NY house, and it was incredible to see how he lives and what his personal studio is like.
Tommy’s home was filled with rock ‘n’ roll treasures, including a great deal of The Replacements memorabilia that he had gathered for a charity auction. It was like a sneak peek to be able to see it.
Another sneak peek was when I got to hear him rehearsing a cover of The Rolling Stones’ “Angie” that he was working on for a performance later that evening. Getting to enjoy a private at-home preview was definitely a huge highlight for me and it was an honor to work with him.
