I do take a lot of photos of these guys. They are like family. There are moments you want to capture, each meaning something in your life, and to theirs. My intent is to show you what I see in these guys, while at the same time trying to take a good photo. As I improve, so will the photos, and the story behind.
What I like about The Robots is that they have character, and sometimes are characters but that is besides the point. When you watch them, you can "hear" their music in their body language, without hearing an actual note from their instruments. They know how to "feel" the music, wrap themselves around it, and crank it out to us. That is what makes this band special, and why you need to experience them at least once in your life . . . if not more. Sort of a natural high.
So, go for the ride . . .
As strange as this may sound, these next few photos of Bob and Chris remind me of Peter Gaberiel, because of the creativity, inventiveness, the willing to do what it takes to be an artist first (band first). (A bit funny, in that I have been trying to get in contact with someone to get a photographers pass to the Peter Gaberiel concert this September at the United Center.) Though one may take what they do for granted, these next few photos bring out the special cooperative between these two and the band.
