Photographer's Note

This is a shot taken during the filming of a music video clip.

"The first music videos of the modern era were produced by ex-Monkee Michael Nesmith who started making short musical films for Saturday Night Live in 1979. In 1981, he released Elephant Parts, the first video album and first winner of a Grammy for music video.

During the 1980s promotional videos became pretty much de rigueur for most recording artists, a rise which was famously parodied by UK BBC television comedy program Not The Nine O'Clock News who produced a spoof music video ; "Nice Video, Shame About The Song". MTV led the trend in America.

In the information technology era, they are now just as popular as songs themselves. Enthusiasts of music videos sometimes watch them muted purely for their aesthetic value."

A funny fact is that for this shot, they had to break the guitar in pieces before getting it to explode this way. The first few tries, the guitar would not break, even if this man is pretty much in good shape.
What we see on TV is almost never what thing really are.
