In 1964, fifteen-year-old Mike Frankel found himself among professional photojournalists covering a Beatles concert during the band's first tour in the United States. A few years later, he was a regular photographer at the Fillmore East, a storied venue in classic rock. And in 1969, he was onstage at Woodstock, documenting one of the most important events in American music history.

Featuring Frankel's stunning photographs of nearly every major rock figure from the 1960s and '70s--including Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, the Rolling Stones, Janis Joplin, and the Grateful Dead--as well as many unpublished images of the Beatles, Hurricanes ofColor chronicles an extraordinary moment. Frankel, who was for a time the personal photographer for Jefferson Airplane and Hot Tuna, developed an innovative style--one that layered images with multiple exposures to capture the spirit of the music of the era and the experience of listening to the bands live.

A must-have for fans of classic rock, this is a spectacular and profound collection of photography that complements the music of the world's biggest performers.
