In 1968, Robert M. Knight began photographing bands like Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin and Jeff Beck Group. In 1990, Knight captured Stevie Ray Vaughan during his last performance in Wisconsin before he was killed in a helicopter crash. Knight shared those and other pivotal career moments in his 2008 tome, Rock Gods: 40 Years of Rock Photography. With a forward by Slash, Knight's book features hundreds of images of legendary performers he's both collaborated with and befriended, including The Rolling Stones, Rod Stewart, Elton John, Eric Clapton, Carlos Santana, Aerosmith, Van Halen, Alice Cooper, B.B. King, Little Richard, James Brown, Ray Charles, Tom Petty, Sheryl Crow and Green Day, many of whom he's shot for Guitar Center's RockWalk induction ceremonies. Mr. Musichead Gallery hosts this exhibit and release for the forthcoming updated version of Knight’s book, Rock Gods: 50 Years of Rock Photography, with live music by Lyric Dubee and Jacob Reese Thornton.
