The story of rock lives in Lynn Goldsmith's photographs. After coming of age in the Midwest in the tumultuous 1960's, she crashed the music scene in New York and emerged as one its leading image-makers. She chronicled Bruce Springsteen's passage to glory, the Rolling Stones' legendary stadium tours, Michael Jackson's staggering ascent, U2's arrival in New York, and the brooding force of Bob Marley. Cultural heroes like Bob Dylan and Patti Smith became frequent subjects for her lens.
The range of her work is staggering and in this book she shares some of her best, as well as never before seen photographs. Her commentary takes the reader into the studio, tour bus, concert hall and streets where the photographs were made, offering revealing perspectives on her subjects and herself. A greatly expanded and newly designed edition of her very successful book PhotoDiary (1995), this volume captures the story of a generation's loyalty to rock and roll.
