Rumours Era Photos Taken in New York City


The story that goes along with these photos from the man that took them jps721
"This group of Fleetwood Mac shots aren't my last concert shots, but they were easily my best ones. It wasn't long after this that cameras became restricted. These were taken in Madison Square Garden on June 30th 1977...right at a huge peak for these guys on their Rumors Tour. I had seen the concert advertised in the NY Times and placed a mail order for a ticket. Timing IS everything...my order arrived just when it had been decided to play a second show the night after. Timing got me a front row seat...I was blown away. So I arrive and get to my seat and realize that I'll be sitting about 20 feet from where Stevie Nicks will be standing...OMG, this is gonna be good. And then I notice out of the corner of my eye that there were two very official looking guys standing in a nearby aisle, checking me out. Of course, I wasn't too conspicuous with 2 cameras...one bearing the 200mm tele and motor drive. They talked for a minute and looked at me, but no one came over and told me to leave or surrender the gear...but I was waiting. Finally the show started and I felt OK then. So these are the creme de la creme for me."
