Classic Rock – Photographs from Yesterday & Today

Photos by Jim Summaria / Words by Mark Plotnick

Amherst Media, Inc.

Jim Summaria and Mark Plotnick have released a book that features photographs from Summaria’s stints as a Chicago-based concert photographer. Plotnick provides historical and interesting facts to accompany many of the acts featured.

The book starts with “Yesterday: Rockers of the ‘60s and ‘70s.” Here is when we see classic rockers in their prime like Led Zeppelin, The Who and The Rolling Stones. What makes this book more special is getting to see what the lesser known acts actually looked like back in the day – before music videos and the internet. Some of those include King Crimson, Hawkwind and Wishbone Ash.

The next section is “Today: Rockers who are/were still rockin’ in their 60s and 70s.” Now we get to see some of the same acts but in their later years. Some highlights include ZZ Top, Don Felder (formerly of The Eagles) and Buddy Guy.

Summaria and Plotnick recently were honored to have this book included in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame archive collection that is used for education, research and the preservation of rock and roll. Needless to say, but this book is the real deal.

This is a must have if you are a fan of classic rock and/or concert photography!
