Pro shootings of Chris published by Gazette Live UK

Post by andrew fischer » 07 Nov 2014, 09:27

Hi everyone,

here are some pictures of Chris from pro-shootings published by Gazette Live UK yesterday:

http://www.gazettelive.co.uk/whats-on/w ... ep-8053194

The article is amazing to read but not unique as almost the same was published by Bimingham Post some days ago. But 15 out of 20 pictures posted I have never seen before, though I have a vast collection of Chris's photos.

Here are the pics, they're of a real good quality:

Kirkleavington Country Club, concert rehearsals with footballer Craig Johnson. This photo appeared on the forum before but in poorer quality.

November 1999, at home in Kensington, London (NEVER KNEW OF THIS HOME?!) doing an interview and promo photo set for The Road to Hell Part II album. Photo by James Vellacott

The last photo previously appeared on the forum on the sac of Daily Mirror newspaper article:

December 2000, doing an interview at Sol Mill home studios, I assume. It is amazing to compare how Chris looks in late 1999 (see above) and just a year later, after the operation, before Christmas 2000.

It is interesting to learn that Chris acquired Italia Blue Sparkle guitar yet in 2000, not in 2001 as I thought before.

Thanks a lot for all the comments on this,

best regards
Andrey

Yes, it is an amazing shot. In another source I read the picture is dated 1981, which is hardly true as Chris was not touring then at all, but maybe it was an occasional local club gig...

It is very suprprising to see Chris on stage not with Fender/Hofner/Italia guitar, especially with a semi-acoustic guitar, Harmony Rocket H53 in this very case.

The only other case when Chris is holding (not playing!) a semi-acoustic guitar in front of the camera, is On the Beach Summer'88 promo video, where Chris was given Gibson ES-335 guitar for the shooting.

best regards
Andrey
