It was a very difficult shoot, there was almost no light and it was very dark. I was at the soundboard in the back of the room with a long lens, so I was just waiting for his harmonica to reflect up and maybe light his face up a little bit (laughs). I was able to snap a couple and I caught his eyes a little bit in that darkness. It’s a little bit ominous to some, but to me it reflects Neil Young, an intense, deep kind of guy.”
