Rock-N-Roll Photographer, Mick Rock just passed away at age 72.
Photographer/ Artist / Creator of many unforgettable album cover images for music royalty like; David Bowie, Deborah Harry, Queen, Iggy Pop, Lady Ga Ga and Snoop Dog. Mick Rock has forever left his iconic images in our minds.
For me and most my friends, Mick is most remembered for being the prolific photographer who took hundreds of behind-the-Scenes and session photos during the filming of THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW.
His Rocky Horror photos I believe, at least helped propel THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW into cult status by giving RHPS fans something extra to grab onto and love.
I met Mick Rock and filmed this interview of him at a ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW convention in 2005 at Cashman Center, Las Vegas. I found him to be very charming, playful and disarming to those he talked to and photographed. Mick made even us non celebrities feel like famous stars as well.
Long live the memory of Mick Rock!
