In the calm before the storm - my band supported Monster Magnet in Glasgow in September 2018. I took this as we prepared for sound check. The adrenaline had not yet kicked in, and I just liked the peaceful nature of the photo.

Still Rockin'

Still Rockin'

Veteran Muscle Shoals keyboardist/composer Noble Thurman, and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame member Dewey "Spooner" Oldham lean into a shared microphone to sing backup vocals for the penultimate song at 'Honey in the Hive', a 2021 W.C. Handy Music Festival event featuring Christine Ohlman (The Saturday Night Live "Beehive Queen") & The Decoys with many special guests. Thurman, a member of The Decoys, played the entire concert. Oldham was an unannounced very special guest who sang a duet with Ohlman on a song he and Dan Penn wrote in 1967 for The Inspirations and was later covered by Diana Ross & The Supremes with the Temptations, Barbra Streisand, Wilson Pickett, and many others: "Sweet Inspiration".

"Spooner" re-emerged from sidestage when the band kicked into this song, "Mustang Sally", and played the same piano part he had backed Wilson Pickett with at Pickett's recording session 55 years ago in 1966.

Canon EOS 5D Mark III + EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L @ 59mm. ISO 3200, f/2.8, 1/800.
