‘On the Record with Mick Rock’: Legendary Music Photographer on Snoop Dogg and More, OvationTV Show Debuts August 2

On the Record with Mick Rock OvationTVFor decades now, rock and roll photographer Mick Rock, “The Man Who Shot the Seventies,” has been capturing some of the most famous images ever taken of the world’s greatest music stars. He’s shot everyone from The Beatles and David Bowie to Queens of the Stone Age and Jane’s Addiction, and from Daft Punk and Nas to Black Keys and The Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

His books include Psychedelic Renegades and Glam! An Eyewitness Account. And over the years he’s done album covers for the likes of Syd Barrett, Lou Reed, Queen, and Joan Jett, and exhibited his work all over the world.

Now he’s embarking on a new TV venture. On the Record with Mick Rock debuts on OvationTV this Sunday, August 2.

In four episodes Mick visits the hometowns of a variety of top-tier musicians from different eras. He learns how Kings of Leon escaped their Pentecostal roots and found deliverance in Nashville. He visits The Flaming Lips in Oklahoma City, where Wayne Coyne shows off his art gallery and fills Mick in on his all-night parties with Miley Cyrus. He gets a tour of Los Angeles with hometown hero Josh Groban. He touches down in Philadelphia, where Patti LaBelle shows him her childhood home where she found her voice with a broomstick microphone and the theater that launched her legendary career.

In yesterday’s video clips Mick talked about working with The Beatles and David Bowie. Today (below) it’s Mick on Snoop Dogg and some of today’s big-name and up-and-coming artists.

On The Record With Mick Rock premieres Sunday, August 2nd at 8pm ET on OvationTV.
