Description

From the photographer of the critically acclaimed 108 Rock Star Guitars comes a new collection of guitar photos, including B.B. King, Kurt Cobain, and Prince as well as more than one hundred legendary rock icons.

Lisa S. Johnson's journey into the world of rock and roll photography began more than seventeen years ago when she photographed the legendary Les Paul and his beloved Gibson during one of his famed sets at the Iridium Club in New York City. Ever since then, Johnson has had access to legendary rock icons around the globe, all of whom have shared some of their most intimate and treasured secrets: the guitars that they have loved and cherished.

When 108 Guitars was published in 2013, Johnson hit a winning formula, igniting praise from critics and musicians alike with glowing reviews in USA Today, Associated Press, Guitar Player as well as effusive praise from noted musicians such as Slash, Nils Lofgren and Ian Hunter.

Now, in Immortal Guitars, Johnson focuses on more than a hundred new musicians, a list of heavy-weight guitar aficionados who will not disappoint any guitar lover, including Dave Grohl, Elvis, Jimi Hendrix, Buddy Guy, Lita Ford, Prince, Eddie Van Halen, and BB King, to name a few.

About this Author

Lisa S. Johnson (Malibu, CA, and Las Vegas, NV) grew up in an artistic family, where she fell in love with melody and imagery and pursued a career in photography. After a successful ten-year stint working at Eastman Kodak Co., she met the owner of a vintage guitar shop in Memphis, Tennessee, and began to exclusively photograph guitars.

Les Paul (1915-2009) was a guitar player, inventor, and recording artist. In 1941, he built his first solid-body electric, helping to shepherd into existence rock music as we know it today.
