CALIFORNIA ROCKER STAFF
We get a lot of photos here at California Rocker and many don’t get featured as they may deserve. From Steven Adler to Peter Frampton, from Moby and KAABOO to The Cure — with many others in between — here are some of the memorable moments captured in photos of 2019.
The staff at California Rocker selected cool images that enable us to take a look back at some of the important events, rockin’ good times and misty moments of 2019.
Many thanks to photographers and reviewers Sylvia Borgo, Alyson Camus, Heather Harris, Notes From Vivace, Scott Free, Luis Moreno, Craig Hammons, Cam Acosta, Dan MacIntosh, Suzanne H., Melanie Smith and Paul McAlpine.
