Bob Gruen has a new book out now via the folks at Abrams. After having quite a few wonderful books published of his work over the years, this is, surprisingly, the first time anyone has published a career covering compendium. And Gruen has about 40 years of rock 'n' roll road behind him at this point. Regular readers of Stupefaction will know this. I've seen a copy of this, and its absolutely beautiful...put together with the usual care for detail that Abrams specializes in. Check it out, and order here.
"For 40 years, Bob Gruen’s name has been synonymous with rock and roll. From taking early photos on tour with Ike and Tina Turner, to capturing the early CBGB/Max’s Kansas City scene to covering current stadium rockers such as Green Day, Gruen has always been at the right place at the right time—and he’s always gotten the shot. In this lavish monograph, Gruen has curated his favorite photographs from his career, with intimate captions and behind-the-scenes anecdotes. Featuring such illustrious acts as the Clash, Led Zeppelin, the Rolling Stones, Sex Pistols, Ramones, and more, and including an introduction by the legendary Debbie Harry of Blondie, this collection is a must-have for all fans of rock and roll."
