Post Pictures Coming Down
I have been notified by Tim Findlay that he is copyrighting his photographs of Racer X. The photos while awesome, are generally low resolution internet photos with no REAL commercial value. Nobody will be creating a photo gallery or poster with any of these photos.

However, Tim has notified me to remove the Scream shots, 80's Racer X photos and Paul Gilbert's Desktop photo. I will respect those wishes and remove the photos. It's unfortunate, since these pictures are just cool representations of the band from 20 years ago.

I will not be posting these pictures back up on the site any longer. This is site is for fun for me....and not a job. I refuse to be treated as if this is a business, so I will eliminate the problem.

I would hope that everyone PLEASE avoid paying for these photos in the future. The band has not signed a release for the photos to be sold in any commercial venture.

Thanks...and sorry.

Tim,

I'll explain this....ONCE AGAIN.....I'm NOT at home. This isn't a job, I'm not getting paid...I have a real job, with real responsibilities....when I get home tomorrow...I'll work on it in the time that I have before I leave for my son's ski race in Tahoe. If I don't finish....It will have to wait until Sunday when I get home again.

The article you posted has ABSOLUTELY NO BEARING on this issue...at all. These photographs are NOT in a public place....You were giving the right to shoot the photographs by the venue...but you do not have any right to publish the photos for sale without risk of a civil suit. You have not asked the band permission to sell their likeness.

The photos on the site were clearly marked as being taken by you. I complied with your every request to have them marked by you. The dimensions and quality is NOT high enough to print or create any type (this lower size and resolution was on purpose) poster to create for sale.

Once complete.....adios. Enjoy them in solitude.

It's a classic case of greed and ego. The person(s) that supposedly "profiting" from these pictures....STILL HAVE 'EM! DUH.

The only reason someone would want their pictures pulled, is if they thought they had a chance to make $$, by profiting of SOMEONE ELSE (Racer X).

Ironic, huh? This person who claims to be a fan, is pissed someone is "profiting" of their photos...when THEY want to profit off SOMEONE ELSE!(Racer X).

Let's face it...nobody would buy these pictures because of the AMAZING photography of Tim Findlay....they would BUY them because RACER X is in it! Hypocrite.

And the premise that someone else is "PROFITING" from his photos is RIDICULOUS! They're selling bootleg DVD's on ebay (WOW..that's a million+ annual business..LOL) with a photo on the cover. Is ANYONE really buying that DVD because of the PHOTO?

Go after the people using the photo....not the fans. The REAL fans.

I hope he reads this and THINKS instead of getting offended. Ken really summed everything up but I know that it might cause an ego conflict with the photographer.

Think about the fans.

It is pretty stupid to keep something from fans who love and support the band. I'm sure nobody here on the board has any interest in profiting from these photos and just want to see pictures of the greatest band ever in action. I can tell you that I have the wallpaper of Paul on my desktop and it makes me happy seeing my favorite guitarist.

I saved every single pic to my computer so anyone who reads this in the future who wants to see them just PM me.

All of them are down that have been requested. Sorry...but they will never be back up again.

This site is fun for me....and dealing with high maintenance people....threats on email to expedite the process. Note to everyone...I have a REAL JOB. This is a hobby and something I do for FUN for my favorite band. When people cease to make it fun.....I remove those elements.

My advice to everyone.....DO NOT purchase any of these photographs....He can jack off to his hearts content over his killer pictures...alone.
