Back in 1962, photographer Terry O’Neill headed to London’s Abbey Road Studios to shoot a young, unknown music group as they recorded. That band, of course, was The Beatles and we all know how their story goes. But O’Neill’s story is just as fascinating— he would go on to spend the next six decades on the frontlines of fame, photographing the musicians, actors, world leaders and change-makers that defined our time. His new tome, Terry O’Neill’s Rock ‘N’ Roll Album, takes a closer look at his work capturing the giants of the music world, both on and off stage. This powerful document is filled with over two hundred stunning images, both iconic and never-before-seen, all carefully selected by the artist himself to fully represent the scale and breadth of his career. You’ll find all the greats in these pages—Led Zepplin, Amy Winehouse, Chuck Berry, Bruce Springsteen, Alice Cooper, Dolly Parton, The Rolling Stones and Sammy Davis Jr., just to name a few— captured in a mix of both public and private, unguarded moments. Also included are O’Neill’s own fascinating firsthand accounts of the time he spent with the likes of Elton John, David Bowie, Frank Sinatra and more. A vital chronicle of rock ’n’ roll, this book is a must-have for any fan of music or photography.
