"To see these blokes getting together again after more than 30 years, being backstage with them and watching them play such a great gig was quite momentous for me - I was almost in tears down the front of the gig watching them do justice to their great songs. Matthew Fisher's Hammond organ was mind blowing too. That's how much it meant to me. Anyway, for me being a massive Groovies fan it was like being in heaven as I didn't really think I would ever see them again. But they still have it - for me it was a brilliant gig."
As a young Rock Photographer, Paul Slattery spent time with the band at Rockfield Studios and on their U.K. Spring Tour of 1978 and took some excellent photos of the band on and off stage. You can hear Paul talking about the influence of The Flamin' Groovies on his fledgling Rock Photographer career in our Retrosonic Podcast special episode here.
