Bob Gruen

Bob Gruen is one of the most well known and respected photographers in Rock'n Roll. He began making photos of Rock Stars thirty years ago and today his work is known around the world. When John Lennon came to New York in 1972, Bob became John and Yoko's personal photographer documenting them at work and play.

As chief photographer for Rock Scene Magazine in the 70's he specialized in candid, you-are-there photo features. He toured with bands of the Punk and New Wave scenes including the New York Dolls, Sex Pistols, Clash, Ramones, Blondie and The Patti Smith Group.

Bob has worked with major rock attractions including Elton John, Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, Aerosmith, Tina Turner and Alice Cooper. In 1989 he documented the epic journey to Russia of the 'Moscow Music Peace Festival' which featured Motley Crue and Bon Jovi.

For years he was the official photographer for the New Music Seminar covering dozens of aspiring new bands in the course of a summer week. In 1994 he ran a photography workshop for the seminar. In 1997 he was commissioned by Fun Loving Criminals to recreate the Jimi Hendrix 'Electric Ladyland' album cover featuring 22 naked ladies.
