Synopsis: For more than twenty-five years the pages of Rolling Stone have been home to the most provocative images of music and musical performers. Rolling Stone Images of Rock & Roll brings together the most potent photographs from the entire history of rock & roll. These are groundbreaking artists, captured at pivotal moments, by the most compelling photographers. Each of these unforgettable images reveals a person, a moment, an emotion - a myth. Some of these images have appeared in Rolling Stone. Many have never before been published. In creating this book, the editors gathered from around the world photographs that most powerfully depict their subjects, images that unerringly fathom the deepest levels of what these musicians - and the music - mean to us.
Review: Elvis, Michael, Patti, Bruce--icons all. The Rolling Stone portraits assembled in this book depict five decades worth of musical sensations and idols. The juxtaposition of the shots heightens the fun of flipping through the photos: A young Mick Jagger sitting under a hairdryer faces Snoop Doggy Dog, his curls caught up in a hairdresser's clips; David Bowie in a loincloth counterbalances Björk in a fig leaf; Chris Isaak and John Lee Hooker stand opposite one another, each in a polka-dot shirt; Jimi Hendrix and Bob Marley, side by side and enveloped in clouds of smoke. These alignments of musicians from different eras and different genres make a simple, visual statement about the transcendent power of music. Every page reveals another familiar image that transports the readers to the moment they first saw the musicians on the cover of the magazine or heard their music. The undiscovered pictures are a treat as well. Individually, these portraits expose the essence of their subjects and speak volumes about the characters that created and sustain rock and roll.
