Ulrich Handl was an amateur photographer in the clubs and venues of Munich who started in 1964 and was still active in the 1980s. Due to his naive approach he portrayed the developments in the local scene(s) in a unique style, very different from how the average professional would have worked.
This book does not only pay tribute to Handl's work, but also to an exciting period in rock music.
It features over 80 photographs of a.o. The Beatles, Stones, Kinks, Who, Yardbirds, Rory Gallagher, Hendrix, Beach Boys, Led Zeppelin, Nina Hagen, Ike & Tina Turner and Swiss legends The Sevens and Les Sauterelles. Published for the first time, there are photos of artists in action on stage, and off stage! The work of Ulrich Handl is a sensational discovery!
