Now this is one for the books! On Thursday, I stopped by the John Varvatos store for the launch of rock legends, Lou Reed and Mick Rock’s new photography book, TRANSFORMER. Moderated by John Varvatos himself, he took to the stage with Lou Reed and Mick Rock asking questions about rock, the 70s and their journey together through this age of music and the images captured in the book.
Charting the transformations of Lou Reed from 1972 to 1980, TRANSFORMER presents never-before-seen imagery of Lou Reed by photographer Mick Rock. Their new book captures Lou in the studio, performing onstage, in his hotel room, and with friends including David Bowie, Nico, Mick Jagger, Iggy Pop and Andy Warhol.
“I’m happy our relationship has weathered the outrageous antics of the past 40 years, enabling us to come together to produce such a beautiful tome.” – Mick Rock
It was truly an honor being in a room with these legends and having the opportunity to hear them speak (and get an autographed certificate!). To learn more about the book and purchase your copy, visit www.transformerbook.com
