MICK IS THE FIRST GUEST ON ANDREW LOOG OLDHALM’S NEW PODCAST ‘SOUNDS & VISION’ – LISTEN HERE

On the first episode of Sounds & Vision, Andrew catches up with his old friend, Mick Rock. Last time Andrew saw Mick was at the premiere of his autobiographical documentary, “SHOT! The Psycho-Spiritual Mantra of Rock.” Mick is often referred to as ‘The Man Who Shot the Seventies’, for his iconic images of Syd Barrett (Official), David Bowie, Lou Reed, Iggy Pop, Queen, The Sex Pistols, Ramones, Blondie, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, etc. London born, he has resided in New York for the past 35 years.

He has shot over 100 album covers including Lou Reed’s ‘Transformer’ and ‘Coney Island Baby’, Iggy And The Stooges’ ‘Raw Power’, Queen’s Queen II (recreated for their classic music video ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’) and ‘Sheer Heart Attack’, The Ramones ‘End of the Century’ and Joan Jett’s ‘I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll.’

L’Officiel USA: Mick Rock, King of Glam Rock Photography, On His Near Death Experience

With a name seemingly given to him by the gods of music themselves, Mick Rock is no stranger to the saints and sinners of music history. The British-born, New York-based photographer and director, whose career spans just shy of half a century, has collaborated with a who’s who of rock and roll mythology. His legendary album covers, including David Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust and Lou Reed’s Transformer, not to mention Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody, as well as iconic images of the likes of Debbie Harry, Bryan Ferry, and Iggy Pop, to name just a limited few, have quite literally had a hand in shaping the legacy of rock music that is still felt today. Here, he discusses his long creative relationship with Bowie and Reed, his brush with death, and what it takes to capture the perfect image.
