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

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”.

The Unauthorized Yngwie Biography in English

divider

The english version of the book is finally here! After receiving hundreds of messages and e-mails from Yngwie’s fans worldwide, I understand that the anticipation and hunger for the english version was longed for. Anders Tengner’s unauthorized biography is about Yngwie’s adolescent years. School, hobbies, struggle, drugs, love, mischiefs, achievements. Who did he play with? How many hours a day? What influences did he have?  What possessed him to do the things he did? How did he finally make it and what was he like before he became “Yngwie the guitar God”?

Behind my participation:
“- I have kept my memories and diaries all of these years. Never had a reason to share or speak out really. But I changed my mind when Anders Tengner contacted me because I knew he would print only my words and nothing but the truth. Anders is a solid top rock journalist, actually one of the greatest we have in Sweden and with an impeccable reputation and knowledge. Last but not least, he is a friend. Yngwie and me spent time at his apartment back in 1980/1981. He wasn’t at all after any dirt digging or rumor mongering, he simply wanted the truth and would not settle for any “maybies” or “approximate” dates. He made me empty my mother’s whole cellar and attic to find the diaries to get exactly the right dates for all the things Yngwie did during the years we were together”.

The book is based on interviews from more than 60 people who stood closest to him during many years. Girlfriends, wives, teachers, band members etc. You will find yourself reading a lot of sad, disturbing and rather depressing things really :( But then again, while I was reading it… I could not help thinking that there are so many wonderful things also. All the funny and crazy shit he did. Many times I’d fold myself double laughing, but then of course I was there to experience a lot of those incidents as well. Yngwie was just plain hilarious and fantastic… most of the time. It brought many personal memories back for sure!

Now… the stories about our years together obviously moved people in Sweden who read the book, because I have been inundated with beautiful messages from strangers about my involvement in the book. Thank you very much. I appreciate you sharing that :). Please feel welcome to share your thoughts about the english book here as well!

I also know that many fans are reading Yngwie’s own biography that also came out this month. Sad and surprisingly enough, a lot of people who were close to him for many years are not even mentioned. The Yngwie I knew would never do that, therefore I know he was not behind that decision. I have not read his book myself but I know that important band members doesn’t get the time of day and his two ex-wifes Erica and Amber are referred to as a groupies and fans (?). So as you understand both books are from different perspectives. I would say that reading both books will fill in all possible blanks. So when you are done reading, tell us what you think :)

Additional ex-band members and sound engineer are included in the english version: Björn Englen, Pontus Norgren & Mick Cevino

Medieval with Zaann

Posted in Bands & Artists, Live Photography, Live Shows, Make Up - Savage Beauty, Personal, Savage Beauty Photography with tags , , , , , , , , , , on April 1, 2013 by Tallee Savage

PastedGraphic-1Working with Zaann was a true pleasure. She is as perceptive, wise, humble and sweet as they come <3  Travelled all the way from a town called Maidstone, an hour outside of London, to stay with me for three days. A nice arrangement made by our mutual friend Michael Kenney, who also happened to have business in Sweden at the same time. Michael has been the bass tech for Steve Harris of Iron Maiden for the last 30 years, and has a recording history with the band that goes all the way back to the albums ”No prayer for the Dying”, ” Fear of the Dark” and ”Virtual XI. On stage he has handled the keyboard playing since the ”Seventh Son of a Seventh Son Tour”. This particular visit in Sweden was of a different matter though. Michael was on tour with Steve Harris’ solo/side project British Lion and he thought it would be an excellent idea for me and Zaann to collaborate. Busy, busy weekend: First we did five different photo sessions with a variety of themes. 1700s, 1800s, Goth Lolita, Princess and Medieval. In the next few days you will see Zaann’s many different faces only by changing the make up and hair a little. We had Michael over for dinner one day followed by a ”girls night out” the next day with my sister Amanda and Tåve to see British Lion perform in Stockholm. After party was at Club Rocks and Heavens Gate.

tallee-signThe first session with Zaann here is a medieval theme we actually did in 30 minutes before she had to organize her stuff and run off to the airport. Next up will be “La Belle Époque”. See you then!

This is an interview with me made by Anders Tengner for MAGASIN UPPLANDS VÄSBY.
Both in english and Swedish.

eng-flag-1In Upplands Väsby she is more known as Yngwie Malmsteen’s first girlfriend, but she soon made a name for herself as a very unique photographer. Tallee Savage has her photo studio in Sollentuna and the person portrayed always ends up – somewhere else. – It could take days to produce one single fantasy image, she says.

She looks like Morticia from the Addams Family and lives in a house decorated as an old Victorian castle. Her last name is Savage… for real. No wonder she named her company Savage Beauty. But this photographer is everything but creepy. She does however have the predilection for the mystic, romantic horror from 30’s classics and Hard Rock music. The latter is no surprise. Tallee was world famous Swedish guitar virtuoso Yngwie Malmsteen’s first girlfriend.
– We met when I was 14 and he was 17 years old. It was at a party at the home of Europe bassist John Leven, Tallee laughs at the memory. I thought only old men were named Yngwie and told him so. He persisted for months about going to the movies. And we eventually did. It turned out to be more than a movie.
In a new book about Yngwie Malmsteen, dealing with the scandal-ridden rock star’s life (“As Above, So Below”) – she talks in detail about how they became a couple. The relationship lasted four years. She moved with him to Los Angeles when he got an offer to move there in 1983. The U.S. is like home to Tallee being half American and half Chilean. She came to Sweden as a refugee from Chile when she was only 10 years old and grew up in Upplands Väsby with two sisters.
– I was among the very first Chilean in Upplands Väsby, smiles Tallee. It was a great place to grow up. I had experienced the hard rock explosion in Upplands Väsby. You know, with Europe and all those bands. I was among the first hard rock girls in Upplands Väsby and wore black clothes and a bandoleer belt to school. Yngwie lived with me for a while in Upplands Väsby. It was great. One week we could celebrate the Chilean Association and listened to Victor Jara and the next there would be parties at the home of the guys in Europe.
She lived there until 1994 when she and her husband Mattias moved to a house in Sollentuna. – The traffic was badly congested towards Väsby, sighs Tallee.
– We wanted to be closer to the city, but did not live there. Sollentuna is close to parks, schools and shops. It invested in youth activities with several sports and gymnastics halls and then we have the Arena-Satellite. It is an operation filled with computers, rehearsal rooms, a recording studio and space for dancing.
The schools in Sollentuna are well-managed and ranks as the best in greater Stockholm. – Sofielundsskolan, where my children attend, is pleasant and has good education. They were one of the first to implement IT in learning and have in a natural way brought the pupils into the school of the future. Furthermore the business climate is good here. We really thrive in Sollentuna.
She has built her business at home which consists of advanced photography and extreme make-up. Among her clients is everything from families who want to eternalize their kids in a different way, to rock bands such as Crucified Barbara, Fatal Smile, and Over The Rainbow with Ritchie Blackmoore’s son. They all want to enhance their visual image. Even internationally acclaimed song writer Andreas Carlsson, guitar legend Michael Schenker, and members from the Swedish hardrock band Europe have posed in front of her camera. The pictures she takes can best be described as photo art, especially after they have been edited by her husband Mattias Savage who touches them up and creates fantasy inciting surroundings and the mystique that is always present in the pictures. The color scheme is attenuated.
– I like Tim Burton, Tallee admits unsurprisingly. His scenography, lighting and picture language is very exciting and dramatic.
The photo studio is located in the bottom floor of the large house. Here one finds a variety of costumes and imaginative props. Tallee is always running around to different swap-meets and finds unique stuff on her trips abroad. It is filled with skulls and monsters, dresses from La Belle Epoque and angel’s wings with genuine feathers, and this style goes through the entire house.
– My daughter brought a friend home one day who said; “Oh, have you already decorated your house for Halloween?,” and my daughter replied; “No, this is how it always looks at our place” Tallee says and laughs.
Even though Tallee has been taking photographs as a hobby since the age of 12, it wasn’t until 2005 that became a professional photographer.
– I learned how to work in a studio and with lighting.  Her business took off seriously after she put her first images on Facebook and got a huge response. Now the customers come frequently.
– Some clients have an idea and we go through it, Tallee says. Other times I can tell by the person what would fit, maybe as a classic Hollywood star. Everybody is excited and no regrets. There is a lot of work behind a fantasy picture. It all depends on what the customer wants!

swe-flag-1I Upplands Väsby blev hon känd som Yngwie Malmsteens första flickvän, men hon fick snart ett namn som en mycket annorlunda fotograf. Tallee Savage har sin fotostudio hemma i Sollentuna, och den som porträtterashamnar alltid – någon annanstans. – Det kan ta dagar att ta fram en enda bild, säger hon.

Hon ser ut som Morticia i familjen Addams, bor i ett hus som är inrett som ett gammalt kråkslott och heter Savage i efternamn. På riktigt. Inte så konstigt att hon döpt företaget till Savage Beauty. Men fotografen är allt annat än läskig. Däremot har hon förkärlek till det mystiska, den romantiska skräcken från 30-talsklassikerna och hårdrock. Det sistnämnda kanske inte är så konstigt. Tallee var svenske världsberömde gitarrvirtuosen Yngwie Malmsteens första flickvän.
–Vi träffades när jag var 14 år och han var 17 år. Det var på en fest hemma hos Europebassisten John Levén, skrattar Tallee åt minnet. Jag trodde bara att gamla gubbar hette Yngve och sa det. Han tjatade i flera månader på att jag ska gå på bio med honom, och så blev det till slut.
Det blev mycket mer än bio. I en ny bok om Yngwie Malmsteen som handlar om den skandalomsusade rockstjärnans liv (“Såsom i Himmelen, så ock På Jorden”) – berättar hon ingående om hur de blev ett par. Förhållandet höll i fyra år. Hon följde med honom till Los Angeles när han fick ett erbjudande att flytta dit 1983. Amerika är nästan hemmaplan för Tallee som är hälften amerikanska och hälften chilenska. Hon kom till Sverige som flykting från Chile när hon var bara 10 år och växte upp i Upplands Väsby med två systrar.
–Jag tillhörde de allra första chilenarna i Upplands Väsby, ler Tallee. Det var ett bra ställe att växa upp på. Jag var med under hårdrocksexplosionen i Upplands Väsby. Du minns, med Europe och flera andra band. Jag var bland de första hårdrockstjejerna i Upplands Väsby och bar svarta kläder och patronbälte till skolan. Yngwie bodde hos mig en tid i Väsby. Det var fantastiskt. Ena helgen var man på fest med Chilenska Föreningen och lyssnade på Victor Jara och helgen därpå festade man hemma hos grabbarna i Europe.
Hon bodde kvar ända till 1994 då hon och maken Mattias flyttade till en villa i Sollentuna. – Det var jobbiga köer ut mot Upplands Väsby, suckar Tallee. Vi ville bo närmare stan, men inte bo i stan. I Sollentuna är det nära till grönområden, skolor och affärer. Det satsas på ungdomsverksamhet med flera idrotts- och gymnastikhallar och så har vi ju Arena-Satelliten. Det är en verksamhet fylld med datorer, replokaler, en musikstudio och utrymme för dans.
Hon fortsätter:
Sollentunas skolor mår bra och rankas som de bästa i länet. Sofielundsskolan, där mina barn går, är trivsam och har god pedagogik. De var tidiga med att införa IT i lärandet och har på ett naturligt sätt fört in barnen i framtidens skola. Dessutom är företagsklimatet bra här. Vi trivs verkligen i Sollentuna.
Hemmavid har hon byggt upp sin verksamhet som består av avancerade fotografier och extrem makeup. Bland hennes klienter finns allt från familjer som vill föreviga sina barn på ett annorlunda sätt till rockband som Crucified Barbara, Fatal Smile och Over The Rainbow med Ritchie Blackmores son. Alla vill de förstärka sin visuella image. Till och med Andreas Carlsson, gitarrlegenden Michael Schenker och medlemmar från Europe har poserat framför hennes kamera.
Bilderna hon tar kan närmast beskrivas som fotokonst speciellt efter de redigerats av hennes man Mattias som efterbehandlar dem och skapar fantasieggande miljöer och den mystik som alltid råder i bilderna. Färgpaletten är dämpad.
– Jag gillar Tim Burton, erkänner Tallee föga överraskande. Hans scenografi, ljussättningar och bildspråk känns väldigt spännande och dramatiska.
Fotostudion ligger i bottenvåningen i det stora huset. Här trängs också en lång rad kostymer och fantasifull rekvisita. Tallee ränner jämnt på loppisar och hittar unika grejor på utlandsresor. Det är inte långt mellan dödskallar och monster, klänningar från La Belle Epoque och änglavingar med äkta fjädrar. Och stilen går, som sagt, igen i hela huset. – Min dotter hade med sig en kompis hem som sa “Jaha, har ni pyntat till Halloween”. Min dotter svarande “Nej, det ser alltid ut så hår hos oss”, säger Tallee och skrattar.
Även om Tallee fotograferat som hobby sedan hon var 12 år, var det först 2005 som hon tog steget att livnära sig som fotograf.
– Jag lärde mig jobba i studio och ställa in ljus. Hennes verksamhet kom igång ordentligt efter hon lagt sina första bilder på Facebook och fick ett enormt gensvar. Nu strömmar kunderna till.
– En del kunder har en idé och vi går igenom den, berättar Tallee. Andra gånger ser jag på personen vad som skulle passa, kanske som klassisk Hollywoodsjtärna. Alla är på och ingen ångrar sig.
Det ligger mycket jobb bakom en avancerad fantasybild. Allt beror på vad kunden vill ha!
