Bob Gruen


Bob Gruen is one of the most wellknown and connected photographers in rock and roll. For more than 50 years, he has documented the music scene in pictures that have captured the world’s attention. Rock & Roll Is Freedom is Gruen’s first written account of his winding, adventurefilled journey. He takes us on visits to John and Yoko’s downtown apartment, on a crosscountry road trip with the Ike and Tina Turner Band, to Glasgow with Debbie Harry, backstage with KISS, and on the bus as he swaps steeltoed boots with Sid Vicious. In fastpaced stories and iconic images, Gruen gives the reader a unique window into to the evolution of American music culture over the last five decades.
