Linda Ronstadt, NYC, 1976


I was asked once which were my favorite photos I have shot. Always one comes to mind. You can say that I had to sneak into the venue to shoot this image of Linda Ronstadt. They were not letting anyone shoot her shows in NYC but I had a plan. I went to the backstage door of the venue where my good friend was security at the door and who knew if I was there with my cameras then I must be on assignment from the record label. But since there were no photographers to be there were also no photo passes. My security friend asked me if I know that there was no shooting at the show tonight, I shrugged my head and said to him that I just came from a photo shoot which is why I had the camera bag. Now I always wear my photo pass a little above the right knee so it was low. Since I was able to get into the venue without a problem, I needed a pass to attach to my leg. Out of my camera bag came the photo pass from the week before and since the pass was low on my leg, security would flash their lights on my leg, see the pass and leave me alone. I waited until her second song was over and walked down the aisle to the third row, sat in the aisle to keep low as not to be in the way of the audience, and started shooting. Linda gazed over to me and continued the show, and I continued to shoot. -- Richard E. Aaron
