Rock On: Behind the Scenes at Our July Cover Shoot

We got three Southwest Florida rock starts together at the same place at the same time.

We had a little fun with our July cover story. Southwest Florida is home to quite a few rock stars. We got three of them together to shoot for our cover: Brian Howe, former lead singer for Ted Nugent and Bad Company; Steve Luongo, a drummer for Billy Squier, John Entwistle and others; and Cliff Williams, the bass player for AC/DC.

They were all kind enough to head to photographer Craig Hildebrand's new Fort Myers studio for the shoot. (Read the full story here.)

Hair and makeup artist Stephanie, from Duality Artistry, photo assistant Alan James and creative director Tessa Tilden-Smith act as stand-ins for the cover shot, before the real stars arrive.
