‘Who Shot Rock & Roll: A Photographic History of 1955-Present’
Gail Buckland Knopf,
$40

 

In the introduction to this amazing collection of rock ’n’ roll photographs, Buckland writes, “Rock and roll has a handmaiden, and her name is photography. The music alone cannot convey the rebellion, liberation, ecstasy, and group dynamic that is rock ... After the music stops, the still image remains, a conduit for the electricity of rock and roll.” What else is there to say?
