Michael Sheehan --- Reinstatement as Photographer for Widespread Panic sign now

Hey There!

This petition is in regard to photographer Michael Sheehan. It was recently brought to my attention that Michael was no longer taking pictures for Widespread Panic. For years myself and many others have enjoyed Michaels captivating images of some of the greatest bands in rock history including the Grateful Dead, Phish, Widespread Panic, the Allman Brothers Band, Joan Baez, the Black Crowes, Blues Traveler, James Brown, Ray Charlers, Crosby Stills Nash & Young, Karl Denson, Donna the Buffalo, Bob Dylan, Bela Fleck, Galactic, Bruce Hornsby, Moe., Willie Nelson, the Neville Brothers, Santana, the String Cheese Incident, and many others. Anyone who has seen Michaels photographs at www.furtherimages.com knows that he is one of the best in his field.

Along with the steadiest hand in the business, Michael has an eye for photography that has resulted in capturing part of the magic of going to a concert. His reason for dismissal is unclear and when management was contacted regarding the matter it was stated that they didnt have time to deal with such matters. To me this means that Brown Cat does not feel having a photographer for the band is important. But the photographs taken
are not just simply pictures, but a glimpse into our history and the things we love. As the band grows and changes I would like to be able to look back at such pictures to help jog memories of fun times with friends. Don't you? Brown Cat Management refuses to respond to questions asked by fans regarding the subject.

Myself and many other fans wish that Michael Sheehan would be reinstated as a photographer for Widespread Panic. If you have ever viewed, purchased, enjoyed, or otherwise used Michael Sheehans images I urge you to sign.

**I would like to note that this petition was started by myself, a fan of Michaels, for no other reason than I thought the way he was treated was unfair and that simply put, he is the best at what he does, and I want to see more pictures of Widespread Panic by him. I was in no way compensated or even asked to do this by Michael Sheehan or anyone else.**
