Friday Night’s Guest: Famed Rock Photographer Lynn Goldsmith
Written by admin on July 30, 2008
While The Police are embarking on their final U.S. tour, I thought it would be interesting to talk with someone who was with them behind the scenes in their early years. Enter: Lynn Goldsmith, photographer and author of the 2007 book The Police 1978-1983.
[amazonify]0316005916[/amazonify]Goldsmith had been with Sting, Andy Summer and Stewart Copeland through their rise. IRS records took a chance on the band, as they did so many other potential greats in the late 70s and early 80s and unleashed a trio of musicians who would make rock history. In the book, Goldsmith features several candid shots of the three, concert/behind-the-scenes photos and some interesting stories. Part of the proceeds for book sales will benefit the Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation.
Our interview with Lynn will lead off the second hour of the program. Revenge of the 80s Radio airs live on Q99.1FM and this website Friday nights 7-9pm Eastern US time and Wednesdays at noon Melbourne Time on Radio 80s 87.6FM in Korumburra, Australia. A podcast of the show will also be available.
