Oh, and I hate black. Why do so many performers wear black!?

I have never understood this. There is usually a black curtain behind them and all you see is a pair of hands holding a guitar and a head floating in mid air.

Excellent article. I'm usually on the other side of the guitar though. The only gig photography I have done was with a local jazz band where I used my Rolleicord and could barely see an image on the ground glass.
