Genuinely gutted to be writing this. As of last Friday, The Fly magazine closed it's doors for the final time, having delivered cutting-edge music journalism for the past 15 years.
I'm truly honoured to have been part of the team for the past couple of years - turning up to shoot gigs and festivals saying "I'm Danny Payne from The Fly" always gave me a great sense of pride, a pride shared by everyone who contributed, a pride that was evident on every page of every single issue. To produce such a consistently high quality periodical for such a prolonged amount of time was a fantastic achievement.
I've been lucky enough to work with/for some fantastic people, and shoot some truly outstanding bands.
Good luck to everyone connected with the mag.
