Lynn Goldsmith: Rock and Roll Stories


Everybody knows I love Rock –n- Roll. And I’m a huge fan of the photographers who captured the true spirit of the musicians who wrote and played the music. Lynn Goldsmith is one such photographer whose list of musicians she has shot is enviable. From legends like Patti Smith and Bob Dylan, she’s also captured some of my most revered rock stars like The Rolling Stones and David Bowie.

Last year her book Rock and Roll Stories was released, chronicling the history of Lynn Goldsmith's career. Her commentary alongside the photographs takes you on her journey, from the tour bus to the stage, it’s almost like reading her diary. And since My Generation is loyal to the bone to our roots in growing up adoring music and those babes that made it, her book is a true treasure to me. Pick it up if you get the chance, you won’t regret it.
