Editorial Reviews

Review

“There are a number of takeaways for aspiring rock chroniclers. Better yet, there’s a constant sense of awe that he’s walked among gods and goddesses for so long.” ― Kirkus Reviews

"Bob Gruen has been a witness to many of the greatest moments in rock and roll's history."

Jakob Dylan

"Bob is the guy behind the camera who you actually like! He brings out your best cool."

Iggy Pop

"Bob's got the ultimate backstage pass. Can you imagine the stories he's got?"

Alice Cooper

"Bob catches those explosive, signature moments that every photographer hopes to get."

Debbie Harry

"Bob is the most rock-and-roll guy I know. He has seen it all, lived the life, and he doesn't hold back in this book."

Billie Joe Armstrong

“Rock fans will devour this narrative and find its “you are there” style eminently palpable." ― Library Journal

Bob Gruen is one of the most well-known and respected photographers in rock and roll. From John Lennon to Johnny Rotten; Muddy Waters to the Rolling Stones; Elvis to Madonna; Bob Dylan to Bob Marley; Tina Turner to Debbie Harry, he has captured the music scene for over forty years in photographs that have gained worldwide recognition.

Shortly after John Lennon moved to New York in 1971, Bob became John and Yoko’s personal photographer and friend, making photos of their working life as well as private moments. In 1974 he created the iconic images of John Lennon wearing a New York City t-shirt and, standing in front of the Statue of Liberty making the peace sign - two of the most popular of Lennon’s images.

Bob has worked with major rock acts such as Led Zeppelin, The Who, David Bowie, Tina Turner, Elton John, Aerosmith, Kiss & Alice Cooper. He toured extensively with the emerging punk and new wave bands including the New York Dolls, Sex Pistols, Clash, Ramones, Patti Smith Group and Blondie.

His “Sid Vicious with Hot Dog” photo was acquired in 1999 by The National Portrait Gallery, London, for their permanent collection. In June 2004 Bob was presented with MOJO Magazine’s prestigious Honours List Award for Classic Image in London. “All Dolled Up,” a DVD documentary made by Bob Gruen and Nadya Beck of their early ‘70s video footage of the New York Dolls, was released in 2005.

In the spring of 2007 FAAP University in Sao Paulo, Brazil presented an exhibition of Bob Gruen’s work. Titled ROCKERS, the exhibition attracted 40,000 visitors. The ROCKERS exhibition was also shown from April to July 2008 at Morrison Hotel Gallery on the Bowery in New York City.In November 2010 Bob was inducted into the Long Island Music Hall of Fame.
