Bob Gruen, perhaps New York City's most iconic and important photographer, will release his long-awaited memoir, Right Place, Right Time: The Life Of A Rock & Roll Photographer on October 20th via Abrams Press. Gruen's work has spanned the past 50 years and captured such iconic heroes as John Lennon, the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Led Zeppelin, Elton John, Patti Smith, Kiss, the New York Dolls, Blondie, the Ramones, the Clash, Green Day — and so many more.
According to the press release:
Right Place, Right Time: The Life Of A Rock & Roll Photographer is Gruen’s first memoir of his winding, adventure-ﬁlled journey. He relives intimate visits to John and Yoko apartment in New York City; a cross-country road trip with the Ike & Tina Turner Revue; early days with Debbie Harry; being backstage with Kiss, inside CBGB's, and on the bus with the Sex Pistols during their ill-fated U.S. tour — and that’s only a small sampling of the many encounters featured throughout the pages.
