An action-packed memoir that takes readers front row, backstage, and on the road with rock and roll's hardest-working photographer
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 documented the music scene for more than 50 years in photographs that have captured the world’s attention. Now in paperback, Right Place, Right Time is Gruen’s personal journey from discovering a love of photography in his mother’s darkroom when he was five, through his time in Greenwich Village for 1960s rock and 1970s punk, to being named the world’s premier rock photographer by the New York Times. With fast-paced stories and iconic images, Gruen gives the reader both a front-row seat and a backstage pass to the evolution of American music culture over the last five decades. In the words of Alice Cooper, "Bob had the ultimate backstage pass. Can you imagine the stories he's got?"
