Acclaimed rock photographer Neal Preston, known for shooting classic pics of Led Zeppelin, Queen, The Who and many other famous music artists, will take part in a live online Q&A today as part of Morrison Hotel Gallery‘s Behind the Lens Instagram Live video series.
Preston explains in a video preview about the event posted on Instagram, “We’re gonna have some fun. We’re gonna show you a lot of really cool stuff I have on my walls, a lot of which you probably haven’t seen. And tell some rock stories, take some question and try to have a bunch of laughs.”
The livestream begins at 5 p.m. ET/2 p.m. PT.
Neal’s resume includes being Led Zeppelin’s U.S. tour photographer in the mid-1970s, being one of the official photographers of the 1985 Live Aid concert at London’s Wembley Stadium, and accompanying Billy Joel on the Piano Man’s tour of Russia. Other stars he’s photographed include David Bowie, Bruce Springsteen, Fleetwood Mac, Sting, Peter Gabriel, Madonna, Wham!, and Whitney Houston.
Among Preston’s most famous images is a photo of Freddie Mercury onstage during a 1986 Queen show at Wembley Stadium that was used as the basis for the main poster promoting the Bohemian Rhapsody biopic.
