Show synopsis The 234 photographs in Rolling Stone Images of Rock & Roll are all unforgettable. Each successive image captures a person, a moment, a phenomenon, an emotion -- a myth. In spread after spread, we thrill to the fascinating pairings: Jean Cummings's classic 1956 photo of Elvis in performance coupled with a stage shot of Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder; Elton John and Jerry Lee Lewis leaping onto the keyboards of their pianos; Jimi Hendrix staring at the camera smoking a cigarette, and Bob Marley, on the next page, smoking a Joint; Janet and Michael Jackson gazing shyly at each other from across the page. Featuring images taken by the photographers who themselves forged rock and roll's immediate visual style -- Richard Avedon, Annie Leibovitz, Jim Marshall, and Bruce Weber -- and with a brilliant interpretive text by Rolling Stone's Anthony DeCurtis, Rolling Stone Images of Rock & Roll is an extraordinary eyewitness chronicle of rock's entire history. Now available in an affordable paperback edition with a smashing new cover image, this stunning gift book is sure to find a whole new audience.
