Capturing the raw essence of legends, from the Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Roxy Music, Bob Marley, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, David Bowie, Blondie, The Jam, Sex Pistols, and the Ramones, to U2, REM, Madonna, Nirvana, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Hole, Oasis, Marilyn Manson, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, the White Stripes, and more.
