Rock Dreams

The book everyone bought in the seventies, ask yer dad.
Rock Dreams by Guy Peellaert and Nik Cohn, released in 1973. Peellaert's illustrations were an exaggerated and almost tacky (in a good way), yet visually brilliant and a tongue in cheek tribute on the modern Rock and Roll stars of the time. He was also famous for his album covers not least Bowie's Diamond Dogs, and of course the very cool Taxi Driver poster.
Most of the original paintings from the book were allegedly bought by Jack Nicholson too.
