“When I was in high school I wanted to be an artist but music was around,” McAlpine said. ” I was doing illustrations of musicians. I got a camera and started photographing my artwork.

McAlpine said things were different in the day, particularly with regard to rules for photographers and how long they were allowed to stay in the pit.

“Back in the ’70s there weren’t any ‘three-song’ rules,” he said. “If you behaved yourself everything was fine Only one time in my entire life did the first three songs produce a good image. When it gets down and dirty and there are no rules, that’s when Rock ‘n’ Roll happens.”

McAlpine said he liked that there were no rules in those days and that’s what got him interested in his what would become his lifelong career.
