The latest episode of Gear Club Podcast, featuring a conversation with renowned rock photographer Bob Gruen, is now live online at gear-club.net/episodes/92-bob-gruen. Titled “Capturing the Passion with Bob Gruen,” the episode is an intimate sitdown with Gruen, who breaks down his long and storied career.
For decades, Gruen has documented the artists, concerts and clubs that have come to define rock music, and is responsible for some of the most iconic images of the idiom. In his over-50-year career, he has photographed the likes of Elvis Presley, John Lennon, Led Zeppelin, Frank Zappa, Harry Nilsson, The Rolling Stones, The Clash, The Who and so many others. In this episode, Gruen talks with Gear Club hosts Stewart Lerman and John Agnello about his artistic philosophy, his move from film to digital, his intimate relationship with John Lennon and Yoko Ono, and what it’s been like being on the other side of the camera as he captured and documented music history for more than 50 years in photographs that have garnered the world’s attention.
