His books and podcasts have relieved the boredom and monotony of many many days of surveillance.

Looking forward to the next couple of books – cheers g

Henry Rollins live Spoken Word

Henry Rollins 4, originally uploaded by gavin.warren.

Henry Rollins, I saw him in Black Flag in the mid 80’s, I saw him in The Henry Rollins Band at the Livid Festival in the 90s and now Hank is doing a spoken word world tour – in the naughties.

His intensity is still amazing, his delivery is non-stop (for fear that the crowd will rush the stage and kill him) and his mind is as sharp as a tack.

I was blown away by his recitation of the Freedom of Speech from the US Constitution was jaw dropping….. we could all learn a thing or two from this man.

Keep well Hank, look after that voice-box – g

Phillip Island 23 Jan 10, originally uploaded by gavin.warren.

Classic Bikes racing at the world famous – Phillip Island – circuit.

The weather was perfect, the bikes were loud and smelly – “I love the smell of methanol in the morning, its the smell of racing!”

This guy won his unlimited race and popped a sweet wheelie out of Siberia in early celebration – good on ya!

Well, Melbourne had the Royal Flying visit – two days of the paparazzi trying to get to Wills to get shots of him ….. (there was also a cadre of journalists in a bus following but anyways…)

Young Prince William took the time to get out of the cavalcade to walk the last 100 metres to Government House – thankfully I was in the right spot with the 300mm Telephoto lens and took a few shots –

Motorbikes and Fish & chips!

Aussie ZRX 1200 on Pier 2, originally uploaded by gavin.warren.

It was a perfect day – not a cloud in the sky and the most beautiful light breeze to keep things mild and temperate.

We took a ride down to the Williamstown waterfront for fish & chips and a stroll…..

The only place in Oz that was relatively deserted – Willy town – no idea why!

This is the ZRX 1200R that I swapped for the Triumph Thruxton – while I loved the Thruxton, I needed some cash and the opportunity to sell it came up, and so I have now gone back to the UJM – (Universal Japanese Motorcycle) style of bike. Cheaper, more reliable, more comfortable and ironically, faster…. not that I spend much of my time speeding nowadays…

Oh… BTW…. If you go to Williamstown – find another fish shop other than ‘Mussels’ the Prawns were rubbery, the chips were manky and they charged $1.50 for a thimble of Tartar sauce.

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of having Akmal in the studio for an interview… Hey, I love comedians almost as much as musicians…

At least I can crack the occasional funny – I really can’t play a note on any instrument.

Thanks Akmal, I am looking at the “Diametric View” theme more seriously now. g

It was my profound pleasure to cover the Glenn Hughes Melbourne show tonight… Thats right time travelers, Glenn Hughes of Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Trapeze et al….

This man is the Voice of Rock and Roll and we witnessed a virtuoso performance in control and pitch.

Bravo Sir, I was honored to shoot the gig, and even more so to meet you later….
