To have a legendary Hollywood actor from The Godfather come to Liverpool is amazing. To have him perform under the same roof as where you work is simply unreal! As I was finishing up some editing from the aerial photography earlier in the day - Gianni Russo was warming up. He was still getting to know the musicians that were banded together from across Europe.
They rehearsed, they jammed, they joked. This was going to be a good night.
I went down and introduced myself. What a guy!
I asked if I could take a few snaps of him outside Static on Roscoe Lane. It's a typical little Liverpool lane that I thought might be an interesting juxtaposition with his yellow pants. He was obliging as ever and happy to be photographed wherever.
The rest of the night as they say, is history...
