Rush guitarist Alex Lifeson.
I was working a truss spot. Which means I had to climb a Steel ladder(like a rope ladder) 30 feet in the air on to a 2.5 foot wide piece of aluminum bars, then crawl out 15 feet over the audience to sit in a chair for 4 hours and put a spotlight on the drummer and switch the gels on cue. Fun stuff, I had my powershot tied to my belt so I didn't drop it.

I kinda like the title and the blown highlights.

Excellent!! Besides hitting the Challenge right on... this is an exquisite photo! Might have been great in color also, but I doubt if the "backup players" would have been so prominent!! Way to go!! (9)

Funky perspective and funky long twin shadows. Strong contrast from the strong lighting against the dark shadows works well. Oh and composition is unusual but strong.

great perspective and great capture of shadows. The first thing I thought is that the title Me, Myself and I would be great for this shot. Well done!
