Rolling Stones

The Stones concert at Madison Square Garden in 1972 was the first time I had a photo pass to shoot them and I was able to get a lot of good, clear, close shots.

I  first saw the Rolling Stones at the Academy of Music in 1965 and ever since then they have been the image of Rock & Roll for me. For this show the Stones had a specially built lighting rig with powerful “super trooper” spotlights onstage shining upwards towards mirrors that reflected the light back down on the band, making for sharp and clear photos.

Mick Jagger came to visit John and Yoko at 3 o’clock one morning while they were recording at the Record Plant.  As he was leaving a few hours later some people who were making a video documentary in the hallway asked if he would sit for an interview and he sank to the carpet just under their camera and let them ask him a few questions.

Keith Richards went on a solo tour to promote his album “Main Offender”.  When he played he would sometimes pause and seem to appreciate his success – a spiritual side of Keith not usually seen.

When I first showed this picture to a friend of mine he said he thought Mick Jagger wouldn’t like it, but I disagreed saying that his lips looked like the band’s logo.

Towards the end of the Rolling Stones Show at Madison Square Garden in 1972 Mick threw several handfuls of rose petals into the air and then seemed to float under them as they fell to the stage.

The Stones and their managers liked this picture so much it was made into a poster for the film they made of their 1972 concert tour “Ladies and Gentlemen, The Rolling Stones”

When Mick visited at John & Yoko’s recording session he and John were playing guitars together for a while. I thought it was unusual to see Mick Jagger playing guitar. John Lennon, Mick Jagger & Wayne "Tex" Gabriel, NYC - 1972

The best part of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction dinners is the jam after the ceremonies. A lot of stars get up and sing together, which is how this most unusual grouping of Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan & Mick Jagger happened. It was one of the most exciting nights they've ever had there!
