Photographer James Fortune's Led Zeppelin photo on the cover: Smithsonian Rock and Roll: Live and UnseenBy Bill Bentley Smithsonian Rock and Roll: Live and Unseen looks at rock music in a new way. In December 2015, the Smithsonian called on rock and roll fans worldwide to collect photos and stories of their favorite moments in music. Fans from amateurs to professionals dug through attics, basements, closets, shoeboxes, digital cameras, and photo albums to find the perfect shots to submit to rockandroll.si.edu. The response was enthusiastic and all over the map, from Woodstock to the Whisky a Go Go, from Lollapalooza to the 9:30 Club, and all the rockin’ places in between. Iconic artists ranging from the Who to Nirvana to Chuck Berry to Jimi Hendrix and many more are celebrated here. There are early photographs of everyone from Run-D.M.C. to the Runaways, as well as contemporary shots of some of the biggest names in music, including Bruce Springsteen, Metallica, and Adele. Smithsonian Rock and Roll features more than 140 artists spanning six decades of music history. With text from music industry veteran Bill Bentley, Smithsonian Rock and Roll presents a curated history of rock music diverse in sound, genre, person, vision, and impact in a way that rock and roll has never been shown before. https://www.smithsonianbooks.com/store/history/smithsonian-rock-and-roll/ Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
