Jagger's longtime girlfriend, fashion designer L'Wren Scott, committed suicide in March. Martin doesn't quite have Jagger's moves, but the singer danced wildly onstage with his arms swinging as he sang tunes from the band's catalog, including songs from their new album "Ghost Stories," out May 19. Confetti burst from the sides of the stage after they performed the dance-flavored tunes "Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall" and "A Sky Full of Stars." ...

In my search for an apartment in Brooklyn, this is hands down, my favorite description i've seen so far: 

"...It's SMALL SMALL SMALL. The studio loft is about 250 square feet, which is VERY small. It's probably the smallest apartment you will ever see in your life. There is a mezzanine for sleeping, so luckily the ceilings are an oversized 13 feet high.

You will also need to prepare yourself mentally for the chaos that exists in the rest of the building. The other tenants in the building are Mexican immigrants who, while they don't cause trouble, are exceptionally noisy and messy and for some reason think that leaving eaten chicken bones in the hallway is perfectly acceptable. There's nothing I can do to control them, so unfortunately everything outside your front door is usually an utter mess. In addition, while we were able to gut renovate the apartment a few years ago, the neighbors directly above you are constantly leaking water into your unit because they refuse to shower with a curtain. You'll need to be prepared to be a master of diplomacy."

Story

New York City based music and editorial photographer
Introduction
Drew Gurian is a New York City based music and editorial photographer who was Joe McNally's First Assistant and right-hand from 2008-2013. While working for Joe, he logged well over 400K airline miles around the world, assisted with tons of client shoots, workshops and conferences around the world, working with tens of thousands of people.

In his own professional work, Drew has photographed for musicians, music festivals, wire services, editorial publications and ad agencies.  He has shot over 300 artists on-stage in the past 15 years and has taken advantage of opportunities to photograph musicians off-stage and on tour.  He also thoroughly enjoys shooting portraits of everyday people, both in-studio and on-location.

In 2010 Drew began speaking publicly at conferences, in webinars, and teaching workshops about his own approach to photography, as well as his time working with Joe. Always enthusiastic to share knowledge, his professional openness and mentoring style has been recognized by colleagues and the photo community, and has made him an valuable asset to understanding photography from a behind-the-scenes perspective.

Drew Gurian holds a BFA from Kutztown University, and has been published in PDN, Billboard, Rolling Stone, Runner's World, USA Today, and in numerous international publications as a contracted photographer for the Associated Press.  He also received a photo credit in the July 2010 issue of National Geographic Magazine.
