The Rolling Stones by Ron Pownall

Ron Pownall has been an award-winning photojournalist for forty years with his work seen on the covers of Rolling Stone Magazine, Spin, Circus, Creem, People & Newsweek. He has over 300 Lp/CD and magazine covers, including artwork for Elton John, Susan Tedeschi, Tom Petty, The Rolling Stones, Bob Seger, Queen, Bette Midler, Aerosmith, Liza Minelli, Boston, Bruce Springsteen and Eric Clapton and more.

As the music scene became more corporate, I broadened my photographic interests. Getting access to bands became too restrictive and copyright issues became a thorny problem. Nonetheless, the biggest thrill is still shooting live concerts. There is nothing as rewarding as capturing a split second of high energy, be it Springsteen in an arena or a new club band. I was lucky to have had the full access that I did in the early, “golden days” of rock photography, when the MUSIC was the bottom line.Ron Pownall
