Snoop Doggy Doggggggggg

Originally uploaded by Charrmer.
Snoop Dogg and his St. Lunatics swaggered across the Sleep Train Ampitheater stage a few nights ago and it was all too brief a time that I got to shoot pics from the photo pit as usual. Three songs, the standard of course, but I really wanted more. Not just to shoot, but to listen. There is just something about him.
Snoop came onto the stage in a puff of smoke from the cigarette just leaving his lips and with the intense backlighting it was very dramatic to see. The crowd was already on their feet in anticipation and I doubt they ever sat back down!
Even in the car on the way home I was singing-- out loud-- Snoop Doggy Dogg-o -oggg. LOL.
He stood alone on the stage for the first couple of songs but by the third he was joined by his guys and subtly took a back seat to them. I could be reading into this but it seemed to me that something a bit different came over his face and persona as he watched them... singing along, gesturing, moving to the groove. It was almost like an internal spark was quietly ignited... an appreciation of them, a love of the music and the experience of being on stage with them.
Snoop Doggy Dogg-o-ogggg... :)
