With a name like Mick Rock, what could one do but capture rock ’n’ roll’s greatest legends? The British photographer shot iconic images of everyone from Lou Reed to David Bowie, the latter of which have been compiled into a book by Taschen, out this September. Bowie’s first words to Rock? “I like your name, it can’t be real!” Look out for a special shoot by Rock in our forthcoming issue.
