Rock & Roll Legends: The Lost Negatives of Michael Friedman features 60-plus never-before-seen, candid, B&W photos of The Rolling Stones, Janis Joplin, The Band and others. "No one was posing for me, because I was not a hired photographer but rather part of their team and a friend," Friedman says. "My hope is that many of the photos will give the viewer a glimpse of the artists as individuals, unself-conscious, relaxed and just being themselves."
Manager/music producer spent the 1960s and early '70s in the company of rock's iconic performers — and he was an avid photographer. Between 1969 and 1973 he shot more than 1,000 photos, but he misplaced the negatives before he could print them. Amazingly, the missing negatives were discovered in his attic last year.
