Get ready to hear a lot about All Access: The Rock ‘n’ Roll Photography of Ken Regan, a brand new must-have coffee table book with a forward written by Keith Richards.
Sixteen photos from the October 18 release are being teased this week at RollingStone.com, while New York based Canadian newspaper correspondent Marie-Joelle Parent has posted a seductive lead-in to her forthcoming interview with Regan. In her piece, Parent reveals Regan’s all-time favorite photo (of Bob Dylan) and excerpts his memorable recollection of a Material Girl LA moment:
“I arrived at four a.m. and checked into the Mondrian hotel… As the elevator doors were closing, I lunged to open them and get in. Inside the car, judging by her trashy/chic style, was what I thought to be someone resembling a hooker. She got off on my floor and went to the end of the hallway. I went the other way.”
“I went down to the studio to await her arrival. When Madonna walked in without any media handlers (which I loved), I nearly fell over: It’s the woman from the elevator!”
