From the Foreword:

I found Alec Byrne on Craigslist. Or rather he found me. I was between photo agency gigs at the time and doing freelance tech support to pay the bills. Alec phoned after seeing my online ad and we arranged a time for me to stop by. While sorting out his Mac woes, we discovered our shared background in the photo business and found we had a lot to talk about in addition to wireless "notworks" and hard drives gone bad.

Alec became a regular client and on my second or third trip to his house, as I was leaving, I finally asked him about the Beatles print on the wall near the front door which I had admired on every visit. "Where did you get that?" He smiled, as if he were remembering something he hadn't thought of in a while. "Oh, I took it," he said, and went on to explain that he had covered the rock & roll scene in swinging 60s London as a freelancer. "I shot everyone." When pressed, he proceeded to recite a list of 60's and 70's rock artists: "The Stones, The Who, Hendrix, Bowie, Zeppelin, The Doors..." I'm a big fan of music and was curious to see the photos since I hadn't come across his name before in connection with this kind of material.

"Where is all this stuff?" I asked, wearing my photo business hat again temporarily and meaning, "What agency did you place it with?"

"Oh it's all in boxes out in the garage," he said.
