Rock and Roll Storiesby Lynn Goldsmith
Synopses & Reviews
The story of rock lives in Lynn Goldsmiths photographs. After coming of age in the Midwest in the tumultuous 1960s, she crashed the music scene in New York and emerged as one of its leading image-makers. She chronicled Bruce Springsteens passage to glory, the Rolling Stones legendary stadium tours, Michael Jacksons staggering ascent, U2s arrival in New York, and the brooding force of Bob Marley. Culture heroes like Bob Dylan and Patti Smith became frequent subjects for her lens. The range of her work is staggering.
In Rock and Roll Stories, she shares the best of this work. Her commentary takes the reader into the studio, the tour bus, the concert hall, and the streets where the pictures were made, offering revealing perspectives on her subjects and herself. A greatly expanded and newly designed edition of her very successful book PhotoDiary (1995), this volume captures the story of a generations loyalty to rock and roll.
Danny Clinch has established himself as a premier photographer of the popular music scene, photographing a wide range of artandshy;ists from Johnny Cash and Tupac Shakur to Bjandouml;rk and Dave Matthews. His photos have appeared on hundreds of album covers, as well as in publications such as Vanity Fair, Spin, Rolling Stone, and the New Yorker, and his ad campaigns for John Varvatos have adorned city streets and billboards.
This lavish monograph chronicles Danny Clinchandrsquo;s illustrious career with more than 200 photographs of the most important musicians of all time, along with his personal anecdotes and a written contribution by Bruce Springsteen. With images ranging from backstage shots at the Grammys to intimate candids, Still Moving is the ultimate gift for music lovers.
