posted: February 10, 2009
Published by Yale University Press, the book is 128 pages and packed with music photographs by Lee Friedlander, William Claxton, Mick Rock, Kate Simon, Baron Wolman. Lynn Goldsmith, Bob Gruen, Daniel Kramer, Barry Feinstein, Art Kane, Alfred Wertheimer, Gerard Malanga, and myself, among others.
I contributed one of the original essays for the book (about my early days as a photographer and my experiences shooting bands in NYC in the 1980s) along with Glenn O'Brien, Thomas Andrew Denenberg, Anne Wilkes Tucker, Kate Simon and Greil Marcus.
You can find the book here.
