Minneapolis, Minnesota (March 4, 2011)

 

 “…The two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Famer is admired for his virtuosity and his versatility. What other guitarist would go from “Over the Rainbow” to Jimi Hendrix, from Sly and the Family Stone to “Nessun Dorma,” as Beck and his band did Sunday night at the sold-out State Theatre in Minneapolis? For 95 minutes, the 66-year-old British veteran treated the faithful to eloquent melodies, startling speed and articulate expressions.” by  Jon Brean Star Tribune

George Burrows' fascination with live music began in the 60's. He saw Cream on October 14, 1968, at Vets Auditorium in Des Moines, One year later Burrows attended The Denver Pop Festival in Mile High Stadium. He witnessed The Jimi Hendrix Experience's final gig on June 29, 1969. His list of artists included many who have shaped music for decades. Around 1993 Burrows become friends/colleagues with people in the music industry. He had developed an impressive networking resume which he used it to his advantage and began a concert photography website. He worked for free through multiple live music websites designed to promote live music and the often struggling artists and venues. His shoot for no pay was an obstacle with other photographers. Burrows’ sole purpose for LGS was for the art, not monetary means. He lived in the music environment and soon developed name recognition. After the loss of his brother, a professional drummer, in 2014, he became serious about becoming a drummer. Burrows began drum lessons. The LGS website, contributors and his studies did not match. In 2016 he was about to pull the plug on LGS and embrace drumming. After a chance consultation with one of the most highly regarded session drummers and programmers today he got his answer. Start a website featuring only drummers. With help, he launched https://www.drummersphotgrapher.com. Burrows added his passion for drumming with his expertise of live music photography by launching Drummer Photographer LGS.
