    Who records a 17 second hit song?

    Posted by Keith I. Marszalek December 05, 2007 10:35AM

    Being a photographer does have its benefits. Yes, you do get to reside in that lovely little gap of real estate between audience and stage, sandwiched in between audience energy and sub-woofer thump. But it's not always fun and games.
    Case in point: R. Kelly's "Double-Up" show this past Friday at the Arena.
    Now, after doing this for a few years, I've learned the routine for the big shows: three songs, no flash. I abide by, respect and even understand it a bit. As a performer, having 47 flash bulbs strobe from eight feet away for 90 minutes would put even the most seasoned rock stars into an epileptic state, not to mention the imposition on the fans who's views (which cost a pretty penny, I'm sure) are obstructed by photogs like myself who are not small.
    But, in the case of Mr. Kelly . . . I think fame has gone a bit to his head.
    Rule No. 1: No flash. OK, I'm cool with that.
    Rule No. 2: One song. Wait a second . . . really?
    To his credit, this isn't unheard of, Bonnie Raitt, Van Morrison and Rod Steward all had similar restrictions during this past year's Jazzfest, but R. Kelly?
    In addition to these rules, there were two caveats'.
    No. 1: The one song is three-quarters of the way through the two-hour set. Ugh!
    No. 2: The song is 57 seconds long. Huh!?!
    You gotta be kidding me!
    Regardless, I need the shot, so I make my peace and prepare. J. Holliday performs, I get my shots. Keyshia Cole performs, I get my shots. R. Kelly goes on . . . I wait. And wait . . . And wait . . . After an hour I begin to think "I" was that damn man in the closet.
    Then I hear it, "I'm in love with a stripper," the song that I was informed will precede the song "Double-Clutch" (the song I'm allowed to shoot).
    I get ready, and get the nod from the press handler to position myself in front of the stage. The song ends, and begin shooting at 6 frames per second. I get 20 shots in before both I and the handler realize the song had not ended, so I stop.
    I wait a few more seconds for Kelly to really finish, and begin "Double-Clutch." I continue, shooting at 6 frames/second and get 56 photos in only to watch the lights go down and the song to end. I even double checked. 56 shots? That's it? Certainly, something must be wrong. There must be more to the song.
    Ladies and gentlemen, "Double-Clutch" lasted a whole 17 seconds.
    Now, this song was hand picked by Kelly's people as the song photographers would be allowed to shoot, and Kelly knew it. As soon as the song began he ran around the stage with his back to the audience making it next to impossible to get a shot.
    Does the man not want press?
    Anyhow, if you want to see what is possible in 17 seconds, be my guest.

    He really should have known what tour he was at. What is Double Clutch??? The name of the tour is in the title. Come on guy. But who cares about the restrictions.... at least he got his pictures. Sometimes the fans take the best ones.

    I'm glad to see Keyshia changed her silver outfit. Looks like she took a cue from Kellz.
