Overview

As a friend and cohort of some of rock music's biggest legends - the Who, Rod Stewart, the Rolling Stones, the Eagles, Joe Walsh, and countless others - photographer Tom Wright was given unparalleled access to almost every aspect of the musicians' lives, on- and offstage. Roadwork is a compilation of over 200 of Wright's groundbreaking photographs and the true stories behind the captivating pictures that have earned him praise as "America's most important documenter of the 1960s and 1970s rock 'n' roll scene". Gritty and realistic, poignant and beautiful, Wright's photos powerfully deconstruct the glamour of life on the road, capturing the true essence of rock 'n' roll: the musicians, the roadies, the fans, and the beautiful women who voraciously followed these rock bands. Over the years, Wright has allowed almost no commercial access to his work; his photographs have been available to only the musicians he's worked with and a handful of record company executives ... until now. Roadwork offers a rare glimpse into the extraordinary life and stunning art of Tom Wright, the man Joe Walsh dubbed "the Jack Kerouac of rock 'n' roll." Includes 180 black and white photos (60 of those are full page) and an eight page color section.

Editorial Reviews

Gary Graff
Filled with anecdotes, insights and frank opinions, Roadwork is a breezy and warm insider's view of the music world told by someone who loved the life and the people — but also isn't afraid to say what he really thought of them (or, apparently, tell them to their faces).

    From a musician who was there for a time.

    So you want to be a rock and roll star? It's not always a bed of roses. Great adventure comes with great sacrifice. Tom Wright weaves a fascinating tale of life on the road alongside some of the greatest artists and musicians of our time. This is the real story, not a rag mag tell all. It is an excellent inside look at how musicians evolve from the embryo to the butterfly. Case in point, Tom's long time friend Pete Townsend. How they inspired one another from the very beginnings of their respective careers. From Pete's bar band The Detours, to becoming the longest living and quite possibly, the most successful rock band of all time, The Who. Fair warning, once you pick up this book, you won't be able to set it down.
