Candid Shots

Above, the first time I met Scott, during the weekend of the 1998 GLAMA Awards (in April, 1999). I grabbed this shot with Micah Barnes, Scott and Dean Johnson (of Velvet Mafia, who died in September 2007). This was taken at A Different Light Bookstore. Scott's told me that the folks who were not asked to perform at GLAMA wanted to get together and play songs in the basement of Different Light along w/ the CD signing event - that fell apart, but he wrote a song specifically to perform there - it was "Not Good Enough"
