Bernie Taupin, left, and Elton John

circa 1971 in London.

Putland witnessed John early in career,

when he was working at a prolific rate,

and says of this image:

‘Perhaps you can see the pressure

'From Abba to Zappa':

Michael Putland's shots of rock royalty – in pictures

Putland is said to have snapped

every major musical star from A-Z.

 

Now, the new book The Music I Saw

pairs images of the many stars he captured over his 50-year career

– including the Rolling Stones, the Cure and Donna Summer –

with his memories of this heady era of music history
