Bob Gruen has hobnobbed with anyone who is anyone in rock and roll. Bob Dylan, Tina Turner, The Who, The Ramones and Elton John. Even John Lennon and Yoko Ono. Bob has photographed them all but also hung around them backstage. This gives the autobiography a unique perspective from the true beginning of rock. He really was in Right Place, Right Time.
However, the book is more than just a who’s who of musicians. It tells the author’s own inspiring story of following his dreams. Instead of going to college and getting a boring 9 to 5 job, he used his photographic skill to meet the most interesting, and famous, celebrities at the time. Bravo!
Right Place, Right Time is the perfect book for music fans or anyone starting their adulting right now in these troubling times. 4 stars!
Thnks to Abrams Press and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
