02.07.95 – Circle Jerks | RIP Magazine

This was interesting in a couple ways.  First I knew very little about the Circle Jerks.  Not an expert in punk rock by any means.  I knew who they were, but not much else.  I knew it was a big deal for RIP Magazine cuz the photo editor told me so.  Second, I knew that guitarist Greg Hetson was in the band and I shot him when he was with Bad Religion.  So it was great to see a familiar face!

I remember meeting the band at some recording studio in Hollywood.  We did the shoot outside in an alley way.  Really simple and quick.  Keith Morris the lead singer was beyond nice and the rest of the band really cool.  It was a really easy shoot with an iconic punk band in Hollywood.  Duh!
