About Bob Gruen
Baby boomers have seen and admired the work of Bob Gruen ever since his initial work with Ike and Tina Turner back in 1970. Since that time, Bob has not only photographed some of the most iconic people in rock music, many of his photos have become iconic, as well.
Bob has been a friend to Boomerocity since 2010 when we first interviewed him (here). The interview was so well received that none other than his dear friend, Yoko Ono, posted it on her website (here). It only seems natural to feature some of his work here on Boomerocity. Whether the images are those you have seen countless times or ones that have rarely been seen by the public, Bob’s photos presented here on Boomerocity will bring back memories and smiles.

Two years ago, when Bob Gruen first started contributing a monthly featured photo of his work, he started with Elvis his iconic photo of Elvis Presley.
For two years, Bob has shared what he called some of his "greatest hits" of his work over his storied career. This will be the last installment of Bob's contribution to Boomerocity as he would like to give it a rest for now.
How poetic that he closes his run with Boomerocity with a photo of another Elvis: Elvis Costello.
As has been the case throughout Bob's career, he was "there" before Costello rocketed to international fame. In Bob's signature style, he spotted the star power in Costello and became a fan of his from the git go.
In the video on the right of this page, Bob shares exclusively with Boomerocity followers the story behind this month's featured photo that he shot.
