This is a celebration of rock music over more than half a century.
This is a visual record of the multifaceted musical genre, whose exponents were famous for their adoption of long hair, sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll excess. 500 images from the Mirrorpix archives illustrate the world of rock, from the boundary defying prog rock and hallucinogenic psychedelic rock; the outrageously camp glam rock to the massive sound of heavy metal and the stripped down three-chord anarchy of punk rock.
Images capture the atmosphere of rock gigs and arenas, at festivals and in the recording studio.
News pictures expose the notoriously hard living lifestyle of rock stars, while portraits of band members and their families reveal rock's softer underbelly.
