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.

NOTE: I do not hold copyright on these images; that belongs to their subject and original photographer. HOWEVER, since I was the one who went to the time and trouble to convert them from hardcopy to digital and upload them to the web for other fans to enjoy, I would 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!

This gallery is for photos of the band taken during the Final Countdown era.

Europe sporting their matching silver necklaces... I read somewhere that the father of someone on their road crew is a silversmith and made them specially for all the band members.

Why is it that they always photograph rock bands in industrial settings? Well, these guys are photogenic no matter where they are, so I guess it doesn't matter that much... winking emoticon

Good Gods--how on earth did they get Ian, Mr. "One Step Up From A Nudist" himself, into a suit??? shocked emoticon cracking up emoticon (He looks pretty smart in one, though--and the rest of the guys, too, of course.)

Nice... I like Kee in a tank-top, and Joey is yummy as usual in his leather jacket...

Europe, looking cute and sporty... I think the makeup artist got a little over-enthusiastic with the eyeliner on poor John Leven, though... laughing emoticon

Ian's being his usual goofy self here, but, um... dang, I forgot what I was going to say--that expanse of bare chest on Joey is awfully distracting... panting emoticon
