I shot the Flaming Lips twice before when "Yoshimi battles the pink robots" came out. They became one of my favorite bands. I went back to Oklahoma to shoot the very very cool Wayne Coyne for a Q article. The blood is a standard prop in his shows. I brought flaming contact lenses to the shoot and he agreed to wear them. The big plastic bubble is part of most live shows, Wayne gets in it and crowd-surfs. As a fan I own one, too.
