Description
As a friend and cohort of some of rock music's biggest legends - the Who, Rod Stewart, the Rolling Stones, the Eagles, Joe Walsh, and countless others - photographer Tom Wright was given unparalleled access to almost every aspect of the musicians' lives, on- and offstage. Roadwork is a compilation of over 200 of Wright's groundbreaking photographs and the true stories behind the captivating pictures that have earned him praise as "America's most important documenter of the 1960s and 1970s rock 'n' roll scene." Gritty and realistic, poignant and beautiful, Wright's photos powerfully deconstruct the glamour of life on the road, capturing the true essence of rock 'n' roll: the musicians, the roadies, the fans, and the beautiful women who voraciously followed these rock bands. Over the years, Wright has allowed almost no commercial access to his work; his photographs have been available to only the musicians he's worked with and a handful of record company executives ... until now. Roadwork offers a rare glimpse into the extraordinary life and stunning art of Tom Wright, the man Joe Walsh dubbed "the Jack Kerouac of rock 'n' roll." Includes 180 black and white photos (60 of those are full page) and an eight page color section.
