Excerpt via Dazed Be it his masterminding of the hazy deformity behind Lou Reed’s Transformer cover, or his role as Ziggy Stardust’s personal photographer, Mick Rock is firmly entangled within the mythology of the movement with which he shares a name; if it was someone worth knowing, chances are Mick probably snapped them. ‘Im not after your […]
