Backstage with Danny Clinch at Bonnaroo 2011

For the past 10 years Danny Clinch has traveled to Manchester, TN to document the Bonnaroo Music Festival, the annual 4 day event that Rolling Stone magazine deemed one of the ’50 moments that changed rock & roll’.  The word Bonnaroo, popularized by New Orleans R&B singer Dr. John with his 1974 album Desitively Bonnaroo, means “a really good time.”  This is a small selection of images, some shot in the Clinch Photo Tent and some grabbed moments backstage, all of which boast a really good time.

Rolling Stone cover by Danny Clinch

The latest issue of Rolling Stone magazine features The Sheepdogs on the cover, shot by Danny Clinch in Brooklyn, NY.

After months of competition and over 1.5 million votes cast online, The Sheepdogs have become the first unsigned band ever to appear on the cover of Rolling Stone. The Canadian boogie rock revivalists, who have been touring relentlessly throughout North America for six years, beat out 15 other bands for the grand prize, which includes a contract with Atlantic Records along with their faces on the cover of the August 18th issue of the magazine.

The Roots for John Varvatos shot by Danny Clinch

Danny Clinch collaborated again with the team at Yard, this time to shoot The Roots  at New York Republic Airport for the John Varvatos’ Fall / Winter 2011 Ad campaign.

The accompanying video, shot in one take and also directed by Danny Clinch, depicts the band as they perform an exclusive track for the campaign.

We caught up with Danny for a few words about working on the campaign:

 Working with John is always great – he’s a true lover of music and is really knowledgeable about music as well as the history of music photography.

Stephen Niedzwiecki at Yard is an amazing creative director and always has lots of ideas to toss around within the context of classic photography.

We work as a team to come to a conclusion on what imagery resonates with the artist we are shooting.  Stephen came up with the plane idea – specifically inspired by imagery of The Beatles and Led Zeppelin coming off their planes.  We decided to make it contemporary – modernize the visual as well as the concept.

I’ve worked with The Roots for years, since the beginning of their underground popularity.  My first assignment with them had me riding on their tour bus.  They are one of the pioneers of live music and hip hop.  These guys have carved their own path – especially in terms of the quality of their musicianship.

The video has popped up all over – from WWDThe GQ Eye Blog, The Source, and Hypebeast.
