SHOT! THE PSYCHO-SPIRITUAL MANTRA OF ROCK

You know the work of Mick Rock. Rock (yes, that is his real name) is rock ‘n’ roll’s greatest living photographer, responsible for images so iconic they seem genetically implanted. You’ve seen them. Cambridge educated, Rock began hanging about and filming the likes of David Bowie, Lou Reed, Iggy Pop, and Freddie Mercury. We know his portraits and LP covers like family photos. Here is a trip inside the chemically altered, mercurial, and brilliant mind of one of music’s great chroniclers. SHOT! THE PSYCHO-SPIRITUAL MANTRA OF ROCK is a work of mind-altering art, a psychedelic scrapbook of remarkable images and memories featuring the veritable pantheon of rock gods. Rock gives us a guided tour of his massive personal archives. He charmingly and bluntly narrates his artistic growth and triumphs. He does not shy from his battle with drugs, which resulted in quadruple-bypass surgery while only in his 40s. This is the other history. This is life on the creative edge. Tune in. Turn on. —C.R.
