By FRANK STEFANKO
A stunning collection of photographs from Frank Stefanko featuring the Godmother of Punk herself, iconic musician-turned-author Patti Smith. -Frank always shot your internal life. He let your external imperfections show. His photos had a purity and poetry; there was some humor . . .- --Bruce Springsteen Patti Smith was a favorite photographic subject for Frank Stefanko during his college years. -Patti had jet-black hair and pale blue eyes that could see right through you. When I visited New York, I started photographing Patti. I was captivated by her look . . . tall, thin, with porcelain skin, sharp features, and those piercing eyes.

LENNON ON LENNON
By ED: JEFF BURGER
John Lennon on John Lennon is an annotated, fact-checked, chronologically arranged anthology of some of Lennon s most illuminating and representative interviews. Interspersed throughout the book, also, are key quotes from dozens of additional Q&As. Together, this material paints a revealing picture of the artist in his own words. It also suggests some of the directions his life might have taken if it hadn't been cut short. And it offers a window into the late 1960s and 70s, which, as these interviews make clear, was a very different time in America and the world.

By HANK BORODOWITZ
In a series of more than 50 interviews that span seven decades, many never before seen in print, this is the story of Led Zeppelin told by the people who knew it best the members of the band. This book shoots down the folklore and assumptions about Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones, and John Bonham, and presents the band's full history, from when Jimmy Page was playing skiffle to the day the band was honoured by the Kennedy Center for their contribution to American and global culture. Led Zeppelin on Led Zeppelin captures the ideas of all of the band's members at the time they created classics like "Whole Lot of Love," "Stairway to Heaven," and "Kashmir," but also captures the idea of the band itself as it created the music that changed popular culture.

Lennon on Lennon
By Jeff Burger
John Lennon was a highly opinionated and controversial figure with a commanding personality and quick wit. And he made a point of living his adventurous life as openly as possible. Whether he was experimenting with LSD, transcendental meditation, primal therapy, macrobiotic diets, or recording techniques, the public was on board every step of the way. He spoke candidly about his intense, sometimes tumultuous relationship with Yoko Ono, his split with the Beatles, his squabbles with Paul McCartney, and just about everything else, baring his emotional ups and downs for all to see. By the time he granted his and this book s final interview, only hours before his death, he had become one of the most famous people on the planet and an articulate commentator on politics, human relations, and world peace. "Lennon on Lennon" is an authoritative, chronologically arranged anthology of some of Lennon s most illuminating interviews.
