Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan Featured in ‘All Access: The Rock ‘n’ Roll Photography of Ken Regan’ Book
Rock photographer Ken Regan is set to release his greatest hits. His new book ‘All Access: The Rock Photography of Ken Regan‘ will include four decades worth of rock and classic rock images, including extensive coverage of the Rolling Stones, the Beatles and Bob Dylan.
In a Vanity Fair article, Mick Jagger discusses his professional and personal friendship with Regan. The singer first noticed the photographer at their Hyde Park concert in 1969. Later, Time Magazine assigned Regan to cover the Stones’ 1972 S.T.P. tour and later the 1975 Tour of the Americas.
“Those dates were always memorable,” Jagger writes, “as at the end of the show, I covered myself in water, which he always seemed to enjoy documenting. If he got too close, I would throw buckets at him, which, I remember, he took in good sport.”
In addition to the Rolling Stones, Regan was the photographer of choice for the Doors, the Eagles, Janis Joplin, Bruce Springsteen, Sting and many more. He also covered Live Aid and Amnesty International’s Human Rights Now Worldwide concert.
