We Are One: The Obama Inaugural Celebration at the Lincoln Memorial, January 18, 2009
Some of you have already had the pleasure of seeing a selection of my epic photos from the concert, but for anyone unlucky enough to have missed them…..
Okay, this isn’t actually one of mine:
But this is:
Photographic proof I wasn’t right at the back, there were some – true, not many – behind me:
Denzil, looking me right in the eye, in a swoony kind of way:
Me and Bono:
Bruce serenading me:
A close-up of President Obama about to speak:
Another Pete Souza-esque photo of President Obama:
If you’re not careful, I’ll post more some time soon.
Happy Presidents’ Day everyone.
Happy New Year everyone – and a gazillion thanks for the company in 2012, love ya all (even Amk)

Especially for ‘M’
In his letter to the Asbury Park Press, Springsteen – identified only as a resident of the town of Colts Neck – takes issue with tax “cuts in services to those in the most dire conditions.”
While the New Jersey icon doesn’t mention Christie by name, he takes aim at the governor’s policies, writing that “the cuts are eating away at the lower edges of the middle class, not just those already classified as in poverty, and are likely to continue to get worse over the next few years.”
Christie … is a professed Spingsteen fan, as the Los Angeles Times notes, having claimed to have attended more than 120 Springsteen concerts in his lifetime and attempted (unsuccessfully) to get the man known as The Boss to perform at his inauguration.
