I remember when I was first starting AmplifySD (the now defunct internet radio station that played only San Diego bands 24/7). There was this one band that sent me a bunch of magnetic letters and a few stickers and their EP, Spirit of a Ghost. I was pretty impressed by their haunting melodies and thoughtful lyrics. I have been a fan ever since. Thursday night they played at the House of Blues in San Diego, and I just happened to have my camera with me. This is the result.
We all know there is no replacing Stimy. This photo to me shows the emotion of the night that celebrated the life of Michael Steinman. Rob Crow did a great job honoring the fallen musician I called my friend.
I have a ton of photos from the night. I had posted them in their own gallery, raw and unedited, to get them up as soon as possible. I have had a chance to go back and edit the photos. I will be uploading some of my favorites one by one.
I will never forget the very special person Stimy was. His music inspired me and his friendship was personal and cherished.
