The story of rock lives in Lynn Goldsmith's photographs. After coming of age in the Midwest in the tumultuous 1960s, she crashed the music scene in New York and emerged as one of its leading image-makers. She chronicled Bruce Springsteen's passage to glory, the Rolling Stone's legendary stadium tours, Michael Jackson's staggering ascent, U2's arrival in New York and the brooding force of Bob Marley. Culture heroes like Bob Dylan and Patti Smith became frequent subjects for her lens. In 'Rock and Roll Stories', she shares the best of this work. Her commentary takes the reader into the studio, the tour bus, the concert hall and the streets where the pictures we made, offering revealing perspectives on her subjects and herself. Furthermore Goldsmith has been videotaping musicians talking about the pictures.
