I Know It's Only Rock 'n Roll But I Like It!,
This review is from: All Access: The Rock 'N' Roll Photography of Ken Regan (Hardcover)
Ken Regan has been photographing rock celebs since the early 1960s. In the intervening 50 years, the list of musicians he's snapped reads like a who's who of the industry: Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee, Elvis, the Beatles, the Stones, Dylan, Jim Morrison, the Band, Arlo Guthrie, Johnny Cash, CSN&Y, the Eagles, James Taylor, Stevie Nicks, Springsteen, etc., etc. ALL ACCESS is Regan's chronicle of that long, strange photographic trip.
ALL ACCESS is a hefty piece of work, 288 pages featuring over 300 b&w and color pix reproduced on high-quality paper. The book is organized chronologically by decade:the 1960s, '70s, '80s, '90s and 2000s. The shots range from fairly straightforward group portraits to in-concert pix, goofing-off-before-the-show photos, at home candids and so on. The book favors the Stones and Dylan; not surprising since Regan did five tours with Mick & the Boys and one with Dylan. Regan's entertaining and insightful comments nicely compliment the pix.
Short and sweet: Regan's book is a hoot, an enjoyable, well-photographed time-tripping travelogue through the music industry. Just beware that it comes with a hefty $75.00 price tag. Recommended.

Amazon suggested I write a request for you to review my novel, a mystery, suspense thriller, The Mistake, by reaching you through your comments section as there is no other way to contact you. If this was not your intent, sorry to have bothered you. If not, and you don't mind being contacted this way, I would appreciate an email address to send my request as other reviewers have done for me.
