Tommy Stinson, Hudson NY 2016 / by Justin Borucki

One of the coolest things I can experience as a photographer is being welcomed into the homes of legendary musicians. RollingStone.com gave me the chance to do just that with Tommy Stinson. You might have heard of him—he played with The Replacements and a little band called Guns ‘n’ Roses. 

Tommy’s home was filled with rock ‘n’ roll treasures, including a great deal of The Replacements memorabilia that he had recently gathered for a charity auction. It was like my own personal sneak peek of the auction. 

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.
