IOWA CITY, IOWA ( September 13, 2013) Quinn Sullivan defies everything  a 14 year old should accomplish in  168 months.  Quinn began guitar lessons at  5 years old and by  8  he drew the attention of Buddy Guy. He has toured the world with Buddy Guy, released 2 records, played on late night talk shows and was invited by Eric Clapton to play the Crossroads Festival  at Madison Square Gardens in 2013. Opening up for his mentor Buddy Guy, Sullivan directed the band, made up mostly of Buddy Guy’s band, with the confidence of a someone 3 times his age.  I watched in awe as all the guitar slingers I have ever seen ran through my head.  The only real comparison that stuck was a combination of the grace of Derek Trucks and the finesse of Eric Clapton. I cannot say in 30 years I have  ever compared someone to Clapton.

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.
