Robert Knight is the Rock Prophet; the one man who can rightfully say "It happened and I was there." Since 1968 Knight's photographs have served as testimony to the greatest moments in rock and roll history. Rock Prophet is a profuse collection of Knight's work with Jimi Hendrix, The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Eric Clapton, Elton John, Van Halen, Green Day and every rock colossus of the last forty years. As a witness to the unique on-stage invention of rock stars, Knight's images are quintessential pieces of pop-culture mythology. His lens has captured the grueling rifts of Jimmy Page, the throws of Mick Jagger on the microphone, and Eric Clapton's soulful 'slowhand.' In a world of guitar gods and earth shattering solos, Knights photographs are the proof of legends. For those who dream of live moments on stage, the climax of a guitar solo, or the performance of their favorite song, Knight has been there, seen it, and taken its picture. Rock Prophet is the must own tome of rock photography for any collector, photo enthusiast, or die-hard fan who wants to own the image of their favorite rock and roll idol.
