This lavishly produced volume presents some of the most vivid and exciting images from the rock world featuring classic artists like the Rolling Stones, Queen, Pink Floyd, the Who, Led Zeppelin, Elton John, Alice Cooper, and David Bowie.
Rob Roth is an internationally renowned theater director whose many productions include the award-winning Beauty and the Beast. He is a lifelong rock fan and rock memorabilia collector, continuing to add to his collection at every opportunity. Rob lives in New York.
