Note to mobile users and others on slow or data-limited connections: This part of Chord & Sorcery is graphics-intensive.
For your convenience, there is a number next to each thumbnail showing how large the actual image is in kilobytes.

Also, some thumbnails have been cropped for size, so there may be more to certain images than is visible here.

NOTE: Copyright of these images remains with their subject and original photographer; my tag on a scan is merely to denote that I was the one who went to the time and trouble to convert a particular photo from hardcopy to digital and upload it to the web for other fans to enjoy. HOWEVER, while I don't "own" these pics in any kind of legal sense, I would still appreciate being asked or at the very least informed if you wish to reproduce them on another website (I can be contacted by email here) and a link back to C&S (see this page for code and banners) or some other form of acknowledgement would be lovely, as well. Thank you!

Cute; the rest of the band seems to be clowning around a bit, but Ben's just standing there like, "Come on, guys, we're supposed to be posing."

Okay, I could have done without the pic of Angus Young (not an AC/DC fan...) but it's a good shot of the guys.

Hmm... I wonder if the fact that Ben is the only one who's properly lit in this pic means the photographer was female? winking emoticon
