Shot From Inside...

Flying under my radar was a fantastic documentary, Rock ‘n’ Roll Exposed: The Photography of Bob Gruen playing on Showtime. Gruen, as Alice Cooper explains, “was part of the entire rock scene…as much as any band.” Certainly that shows; his body of work is basically a history of rock ‘n’ roll. He photographed (and hung out with) Zeppelin, the Stones, Ike and Tina, Aerosmith among many others, as well as becoming the photographer-in-residence for John and Yoko.

But if it was geared towards punk (and later ‘new wave”) from New York and the UK, you definitely know Seymour Stein and his legacy via his record label, Sire Records. If the name doesn’t ring a bell, the music will: The Ramones, Talking Heads, and Madonna, for starters.
