Frank Zappa in pigtails; Elvis kissing a model; Dylan starring the viewer down; the Sex Pistols in all their fury: these are just a few of the iconic images from theWho Shot Rock & Rollexhibit at the Annenberg Space for Photography in Los Angeles.
It is an amazing trip through 1955 to the present, documented by world-class rock n’ roll photographers such as Amy Arbus, Diane Arbus, Henry Diltz, and Lynn Goldsmith, to name just a few.
In addition, there is a stirring 30 minute film which captures the times in all their black and white and color glory, from Elvis to REM.
Celebrities like Mena Suvari came out in their rock ‘n’ roll leathers to open the event, but the real stars were rocks’ pioneers, captured for just a moment in time.
