Photographer Bernie Walters caught the photography bug at an amazing time in rock and roll history. The year was 1964, and The Beatles, the Who, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks and more were making their way to America and rock and roll music would never be the same. Coming of age in the 60s, Bernie Walters knew that something incredible was happening, and he knew he wanted to be a part of it. So in 1965, he scored tickets to his first concert, which just happened to be The Rolling Stones. Walters grabbed his camera, and so began a lifetime committed to chronicling in pictures, the biggest stars of rock and roll. At first, Walters photographed rock stars in action as a hobby. But then ten years later, as founder and president of the International Rock and Roll Music Association (IRMA), he was back shooting musicians as the photographer for Communique, IRMAs house publication. With those credentials, Walters ended up working for and with artists such as Leon Russell, Kansas, Joe Cocker and others. But now instead of shooting them from a fans perspective, he was able to photograph them from an inside view of their work and their lives. Having founded IRMA as a small fan-based organization dedicated to rock music, Walters found his fledgling organization being noticed and publicized by the most well known publications in America, including write-ups in Billboard, Playboy, Variety, Record World and Trouser Press. Walters collection spans three decades and he is now displaying his images to the public. From the first Stones, Who and Cream tours, to Woodstock and Live Aid, to Cheap Trick and the Pretenders, Walters was there with camera in hand, photographing rock and roll history.
