VH1 Rock Honors: The Who Red Carpet
Saturday VH1 held its Rock Honors concert for The Who at UCLA's Pauley Pavilion. VH1 had everything running like a well-oiled machine. Photographers were assigned numbers and led onto the carpet in small groups, kind of like boarding Southwest airlines. I was assigned the very last number of the very last group. There was none laster than me. We were led to the back row of a riser, which caused some photographers to insist upon a new area being specially created for them. The rest of us chose a more zen approach -- I saw one of the uber-competent organizers from The Florence Henderson Show there and knew they would pull it together. Our patience was later rewarded by having the photography gods smile down upon us.
