Pic of the Day: Who Shot Rock & Roll


Tina Turner by Henry Diltz

Later this month the Brooklyn Museum will launch a huge exhibit called Who Shot Rock & Roll: A Photographic History, 1955 to the Present to coincide with the release of historian and author Gail Buckland’s new book of the same name. The show will feature over 250 photographs from the likes of Richard Avedon, Annie Leibowitz, Maripol, and Roberta Bayley, along with a few lesser known artists who are responsible for iconic images; their diverse subjects range from Frank Zappa to Sonic Youth.

Mark your calendars for the opening celebration on October 29th, which will feature a live performance by Blondie, and then make haste — Courtney Love, Mick Jagger, Marilyn Manson, and Amy Winehouse await you after the jump.
