Every now and then, a ‘coffee table’ photo book catches my interest for its unique approach to music of a certain era.
Julian Stone was an aspiring photographer and an avid music fan who managed to combine his two passions for a period of seven years, when he managed to document virtually every live show he attended by sneaking in his camera equipment and letting it rip. He was, as the book title suggests, a genuine “outlaw rock and roll photographer” and in this hour he shares a few fun stories about this period of his life. If you’re interested in this era, you need to check out his book.
In the course of our conversation we also play a few songs (and we talk about quite a few more), including:
Blitzkrieg Bop (live) – The Ramones
I Knew the Bride – Dave Edmunds
52 Girls – B-52’s
I Would Die for You – Prince
Tenth Avenue Freeze Out – Bruce Springsteen
