If music is the universal language, then musicians are the universal language of cool -- and we've got proof.
Who Shot Rock & Roll features over 100 photographers like Annie Lebowitz, Diane Arbus, Ryan McGinley and David LaChapelle, and ties together the importance of photography and music since 1955.
Almost two hundred of musics most iconic images -- think Elvis kissing a young girl backstage, The Beatles outside Buckingham Palace, and Notorious B.I.G. at Cypress Hills Cemetery in Brooklyn -- are on display at the Annenberg Space for Photography June 23 through October 7.
KCRW is taking the experience to another level with a live music series during the month of July ... so make such to bring your camera. After all, you're an amateur rock photographer too.
