ALTAIR

Posted in Bands & Artists, Savage Beauty Photography, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on October 20, 2017 by Tallee Savage

Took these photos for Thrash Metal band Altair.

The band was started back in 1997 by drummer Daniel Hållams and bassist Martin Forssman who knew each other from school. The musical style of the band at that point in time was speed metal with clean vocals and only some elements of thrash. Music gradually turned more aggressive and is today considered Thrash Metal \m/

5 Titanic Mass

”Dynasty releases a monster and mind-blowing record that includes sharp and clean
guitars, amazing performances by Nils Molin, well-written songs, a big and ‘fat’ sound
and plenty of melodies. But, most of all, Dynazty is a band that is not afraid to
experiment and enrich its sound and that’s a thing that reflects in “Titanic Mass”

Great reviews

Is April hindering the once promising career of Yngwie Malmsteen? Tallee Savage gives her prospective – All That Shreds! Magazine

Posted in Bands & Artists, Personal with tags , , , , , , on September 6, 2017 by Tallee Savage

This interview of me that “All That Shreds Magazine” published a few days ago, is no longer to be found!

Once again I find myself in this obscure situation where April Malmsteen enforces her power to shut me and other people up! Threats, abuse of power, censorship. Call it what you want… but that’s how I see it.

It is not my intention to bring any harm to Yngwie. I didn’t in the unauthorized book of Yngwie Malmsteen “As Above, So below” that came out a few years ago and I didn’t in the Swedish movie “Så jävla metal” about Swedish Metal produced by Yasin Hillborg, where April actually manages to have the movie withdrawn from the theaters and cut out my parts of the interview and photos. And mind you I merely brought up some very sweet and funny memories and pictures from the past.

Well, now it was brought to my attention that the interview with me by Andrew Catania for “All that Shreds Magazine” is withdrawn from the Internet as well. Criticism is not allowed and the freedom of speech and press do not apply for everybody. So that was that that…

So in response to all you people who have written me and asked me why the interview can’t be found. Now you know why!

Jon Lord – The Trondheim Experiment

Posted in Bands & Artists, Savage Beauty Photography with tags , , , , , , , , , , on September 25, 2013 by Tallee Savage

This is a beautiful concert I’d like ALL of you who love Jon Lord to listen to. My friend Christer Lorichs spent hundreds of hours putting together pieces to compile a complete version of Jon Lord’s concert filmed at Nidaros Cathedral in Trondheim, Norway in 2010. Photos, interviews, footage from the rehearsals etc. Everything is unreleased before and came to life with the blessings of Jon Lord’s family and management.

“The Trondheim Experiment” is the title of this now free web presentation available exclusively through JonLord.org. including highlights from Jon Lord’s entire career performed with The Lord Chamber Orchestra, Steve Balsamo and my dear friend Nathalie Lorichs on vocals. The backing band also features members of Opeth. I’m so proud of Nathalie, she enchants with her fairy-like voice on the “Evening song”, Wait A While ” and “The Sun Will Shine Again” which is dedicated to Ronnie James Dio. Opeth’s drummer Martin Axenrot does a spectacular drum solo in the song Gigue… and “Child in Time”, so good it gives me the shivers… A must see!!! Inspirational powers of Jon Lord, onetallee-sign of the true greats of our time that sadly left us July 2012.

Please pass on the link to every Jon Lord and Deep Purple fan out there! >>>

Dave Leon

Posted in Bands & Artists, Savage Beauty Photography with tags , , , , , on September 10, 2013 by Tallee Savage

A musician and actor that I had the pleasure to work with. The day after we took this photos Dave moved to Hollywood to boost his career. Here he talks a little about me in the NYFA kickoff party in Hollywood  >> But it’s mighty crowded and loud and you can barely hear what he says. But I do appreciate the nice words and would also like to correct Dave on one part. The link to my homepage is www.savagebeauty.se, not. com ;)

Dave’s own words on his future plans: “Dave Leon is another way of saying “driven by passion”. Passion to self-expression which I always found in music. I’ve been always including performances when I play live, and trying to express myself not just through my compositions. Something I really like is to watch other people’s good work that are out of my craft and make them evolve. That’s why I got into film. It’s the total expression of human behavior,the internal processes when a musician writes his texts, that exact moment, it’s very important to me and that’s what I wanted to ultimately express.

I got in touch with another passion driven artist, Stephanie Ohlsson, who is a film writer and director and with just a few words we could see each other’s thoughts. We decided to create this fantastic story we called “The Stockholm Bloodbath” and make it into a feature film. We are breaking records on how fast and inexpensive you can make an impressive, smart and beautiful film. It’s a great project which we filmed in July and now is under post production in Los Angeles, where we both network and study at the New York Film Academy. We are finishing the post production  this year and present it to Festivals in 2014. At the same time I took another leading role in “Huldra: Lady of the Forest” which has been finished filming in Stockholm and will start post production mid October”.

Here are links to both projects:

Happy 50th Birthday Yngwie Malmsteen

Posted in Bands & Artists, Personal with tags , , , , , on June 30, 2013 by Tallee Savage

happy-bday-yngwie-rubric

I’m thinking about you on this very special day. With a humble smile I am remembering you as a young man. So intensively determined and resolute to show the world what you could do. Despite the setbacks and grief, your tremendous tenacity and fighting spirit took you all the way to the top. I’m very proud of you, my dear friend.

The pictures below are from 1983 on your 20th birthday in our apartment in Laguna Beach. I woke you up with a tape where I’m playing happy birthday on your guitar. A one string, 20 sec. song. I imagine it must have sounded horrific ha ha ha. Newly awake and very happy for the birthday cake that I had made for you. It  had all the important ingredients. Fender, DiMarzio pick-ups and chocolate :) I don’t know if you remember, but you didn’t want to eat it before  showing it off at the rehearsals with Alcatrazz later on that same evening.

In my diary it says that I gave you a cup with your name on it, a burgundy robe, a Jimi Hendrix book, a Dark Crystal book, hair dryer and cookies. Graham Bonnet & Gary Shea gave you toys as birthday presents, since you were the kid in the band, very funny. After Alcatrazz were done rehearsing we all went out for dinner to celebrate your birthday. Perfect ending on a perfect day!

Today you are 50 years old and the living legend you deserve to be. I wish you all the best in life and hope you have a wonderful birthday celebration with your family!

P.S I also want to take this opportunity to congratulate another dear friend in the U.S.A. Happy Birthday DeeDee Keel:)

Live photos of Michael Schenker from Kubben/Fryshuset in Stockholm, Sweden – May 25, 2013.
It was a great show!
Thank you: Michael Schenker, Herman Rarebell, Francis Bucholz, Doogie White and Wayne Findlay :)

All photos are taken by me, Tallee Savage :) Please contact me for purchase or the right to use any Michael Schenker photo. Click photos to enlarge.

I also did an interview with Michael before the Tour in May:

Michael’s exceptional guitar playing has kept many people spellbound for over 40 years. He has inspired and influenced other guitar players for decades. Leaving delightful grins on the faces of millions of fans while we still today enjoy his extensive career with the Scorpions, through the immortal classic albums with British legends UFO, to his long going Michael Schenker Group solo achievements.
 The six-string axe-slinger is seemingly enthusiastic and eager to be a passenger as says: “The universe is driving and I tag along”, enjoying the new album “Temple of Rock” and life more than ever.
 Tallee Savage went down memory lane in a long chat with legendary Michael Schenker in an exclusive interview for Rocknytt. He talks about the album, Tour,  developments and expectations and also explains why he is celebrating the era of “Hand Made Rock”.
