On The Record With Mick Rock

On The Record With Mick Rock

There is a new show in town and this one is all about the music industry which is one of my favorite things to follow. We are a musical family. My husband graduated from Atlanta School of Music and my father sang in band during his 20's plus took us to every concert we could get tickets to when I was growing up. You could definitely say that my family connects over music.
Mick Rock is hosting On the Record with Mick Rock on Ovation TV.  Does his name sound familiar? It did to me and as soon as I read about him, I knew him!


Mick Rock is a British photographer best known for capturing iconic images of rock and roll legends. From Queen and David Bowie to the Sex Pistols and Blondie, Rock is often referred to as “The Man Who Shot the Seventies.” Today, Mick is as in-demand as ever; photographing legends-in-the-making like Snoop Dog, Daft Punk, The Killers, Cee Lo Green, and the Black Keys, among many others.


Featuring guest stars Josh Groban, Kings of Leon, The Flaming Lips, and Patti LaBelle, On The Record with Mick Rock goes into each of the artists' hometowns to check out the sights and sounds that inspire them. A unique spin on the musician profile series, the show's stripped-down style and Mick's unapologetic rapport with his guests produces candid conversations and musical performances not usually seen on television.

  1. What an interesting post on a man I knew nothing about! Image the life he must have lived photographing the most remarkable artists of his time! I don’t think one could ever go past any of the Beatles rock and roll albums! I think Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band is at the top for me!

  2. Greatest rock album of all time is a toss up for me. Bob segar.and the silver bullet band “Live bullet” or Say emotion by Aerosmith

  3. I am all about rock in different languages. The best concert ever was Enanitos Verdes in Buenos Aires

  4. I have been to many concerts. The best one I have ever been to is : Iron maiden with Fear Factory opening.

  5. This seems to be a promising series. It would be something that music lovers will look forward to. I hope it’s shown here in my country.

  6. I have never heard of Mick Rock. Thanks for this post. I would assume that he had the time of his life rubbing elbows with those great artists.

  7. I’m not really a rock fan so I haven;t a clue anything about it! So I will have to check this out. I haven’t heard of Mick Rock before!

  8. I am not much of a rock fan but my husband is. I have never heard of this one but it’s nice to know.

  9. I haven’t heard of him until now. This sounds like a great show that most music lovers are looking forward to.

  10. My first concert that I went to was an outdoor concert to see Lonestar. It was a blast. I have been to a few other concerts since then. I enjoyed all of them. I saw Casting Crowns, Mercy Me, Skillet, and a few other artists that I don’t recall.

  11. My favorite concert was Blue October. It was a nice and unexpected surprise since I was actually supposed to see Okkervil River, but they had cancelled their concert at the last minute. I have always loved Blue October, but I didn’t realize how phenomenal they were live. Plus, they’re one of the most underrated bands. I also love Kings of Leon and The Flaming Lips, so I’m looking forward to watch these premieres. 🙂

    I have to confess I have not ever heard of him. From the video he seems interesting indeed and well know. I will have to check him out for sure. Thanks for sharing.

  13. Rosey

    I’m sure something like Woodstock would be a good answer for your question. 🙂 I’ve seen some great concerts, but nothing as long-lasting in terms of reputation as that one was… 🙂

  14. Bonnie @ wemake7

    Your not going to believe this, but I have never been to a live concert before in my life. I really wish I would have gone.

  15. Kristen

    I will always have a soft spot in my heart for Mick. I am so excited they will be at Lollapaloza this year! It’s amazing what they are still doing at their age!

  17. This sounds like such a cool show and I love that it’s looking at some of the more iconic bands! I’ll be checking this out for sure and reliving the music of my youth!

  18. I looked at a book filled with his photography a while back. That man is amazing.

  19. Wow! He’s like a scholar of pop culture. I can’t even begin to imagine the life he must have had.

  20. Pam

    I would definitely have to think on the greatest rock album ever. There are so many great choices out there.

  21. I think my favorite concert ever was Janet Jackson. She is an amazing performer and I really enjoyed the concert.
