“Terry was everywhere in the ’60s – he knew everything and everyone that was going on.”

Keith Richards Terry O’Neill (1938-2019) was one of the world’s most famous and collected photographers. No one captured the front of fame so widely – and for so long. Terry O’Neill’s album Rock and Roll contains some of the most famous and powerful music photographs of all time. At the same time, the book includes many intimate personal photographs taken “backstage” and at private events.

Terry O’Neill has photographed giants of the music world, both on and off stage. For more than fifty years he has photographed those on the front lines of fame, in public and in private. David Bowie, Elton John, Led Zepplin, Amy Winehouse, Dean Martin, The Who, Janis Joplin, AC/DC, Eric Clapton, Sammy Davis Jr., The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, Chuck Berry and The Beatles, to name a few. O’Neill photographed Frank Sinatra for more than 30 years, being his personal photographer with unprecedented access to the star. He took some of the very first famous photos of The Beatles, and then established a lifelong relationship with the band members that allowed him to photograph their weddings and other private moments.

It is this contrast between the public and the private that makes Terry O’Neill’s Rock and Roll Album such a powerful document. Without a doubt, Terry O’Neill’s work is the most important chronicle of rock and roll history. For any music or photography fan, this book will be a must-have acquisition. “Trusting the stars to look good, O’Neill has been shooting music icons for more than half a century. … Terry O’Neill’s Rock and Roll Album contains many private moments and memories captured forever: David Bowie, Brian Ferry, Dolly Parton, Diana Ross, Bruce Springsteen, Led Zeppelin, Amy Winehouse and even Elvis Presley have all been the subject of O’Neill’s impeccably placed lens. A life in pictures, a legacy in print. Listen to the story!” – Simon Harper, Clash Magazine
