This is an oversize (10" x 13") softcover collection of some of the greatest rock 'n' roll photos ever taken. Centering on the glammest of the glam years -- 1972 -- but with numerous forays before and after, Mick Rock was and is the undisputed chronicler of this moment in rock. All the classic photos are here: Bowie, Iggy and Lou are the trinity at the center of it all, but there are plenty more pics on offer: of The Spiders and The Stooges; Bryan Ferry, Brian Eno and Roxy Music; Freddie Mercury & Queen; Ian Hunter and Mott; the original cast of The Rocky Horror Picture Show; Deborah Harry and Blondie; and much more. Concise, insightful commentary accompanies many of the photos, amply demonstrating that Rock is a man possesed of a discerning intelligence as well as artistic talent. The photo that was originally slated to run as the cover of Mott the Hoople's classic LP, All the Young Dudes -- but was mysteriously axed at the last minute -- is worth the price of admission all on its own!
