Classic Queen

Quirky melodies, flamboyant style, and unforgettable vocal harmonies made Queen one of the most iconic bands of all time. This series of photographs documents the spectacularly productive artistic relationship between Mick Rock and Queen during the 1970’s. Hailed as “the man who shot the ‘70s,” Mick launched his career chronicling the rise and fall of Ziggy Stardust, and moved on to photograph Lou Reed, the Sex Pistols, and Queen. Through more than 250 images from his vast archive, follow Mick from Queen’s watershed gig in London, through to the legendary free concert in Hyde Park. Fascinating anecdotes on his time with the group provide a comprehensive portrait of one of the world’s great bands at a pivotal time in their career.
