From Mark: "We've lost a dear friend to cancer at only 36yrs old. Ashley Maile was Alter Bridge's photographer but became a great friend. RIP Ashley."
From Brian: "I usually don't say much after hearing of someone's passing because I've been fortunate and blessed to not have death very close to me thus far in my life. Until now. Ashley Maile was a remarkable man of 36 years, a sought after photographer for numerous music mags and bands with a comic wit that kept you in stitches with all his stories of dealing with erratic personalities, (musicians:), while capturing them at their most vulnerable...he had an instantly infectious personality that leaves you to wonder how God can take some of our best when their life is just beginning. Fly away then Ashley. You will always be remembered. Love Yu brother."
Keep taking your amazing photos wherever you are buddy! You will be very much missed on tour and as my shooting partner at the shows. All the best my friend. - Richard alterbridge.org.uk
