can anyone give me advice on photographing live bands & musicians?

I have been into photography seriously for about a year now, and have decided I would like to persue a career in it.
I have tried of loads of styles, landscapes, children, macro photography, but didn't get any real "want" to do this much.
I moved onto another hobby of mine which is music, so I approached a few people in local bands, rock mainly, and have photographed a few with some successes.
I want to do more in this field but am unsure where to go next.
Some people have suggested going to agency's, whilst freelance has also been advised.
I am in the North East of England, can anybody help me please?

Approach bands/agents directly. Send samples and compile a list of groups you have photographed to music magazines that look for stock images. Place an ad in music magazines, bulletin board at local music stores/ clubs/ etc.

    Don't drink too much beforehand. Make sure you have adequate lighting. Just keep snapping away and bring plenty of memory for that digital camera in hopes of getting the perfect shot….oh yeah…go to a lot of shows with your camera.
