    No Cameras Allowed: My Career as an Outlaw Rock and Roll Photographer by Julian David Stone is a compilation of the author's concert photos, taken on cameras he smuggled into venues by any means necessary, until eventually he was well known enough to be invited by magazines aching for the shots. The book spans through the early and mid-eighties, covering multiple groups with crisp and seemingly up-close photography, and bite-sized stories on how he got in and what the experience was like. They r No Cameras Allowed: My Career as an Outlaw Rock and Roll Photographer by Julian David Stone is a compilation of the author's concert photos, taken on cameras he smuggled into venues by any means necessary, until eventually he was well known enough to be invited by magazines aching for the shots. The book spans through the early and mid-eighties, covering multiple groups with crisp and seemingly up-close photography, and bite-sized stories on how he got in and what the experience was like. They run the full gamut, from receiving some serious stink eye from the lead guitarist of Bonnie Hayes and the Wild Combo, to a somewhat haunting Springsteen finale and the end of his career as a music photographer. I have something of a special connection to No Cameras Allowed, as Julian David Stone has unknowingly captured one of my earliest and most vivid childhood memories. December 30, 1983 at the Kabuki Theater in San Francisco, the author and I shared a space as we listened to Huey Lewis and the News. Stone clung to a camera he'd had little trouble getting in, and I, at barely six-years old, clung to my father's hair as I sat on top of his shoulders. This was my first concert. Nostalgia is a glorious thing and Stone delivers it in spades. The photos are just spectacular and capture the spirit and energy of the musician, the music, and the crowd. I love this book and am so grateful for those who broke a few rules in order to bring us pieces of the past; accompanied by the narrative of a man who arguably had the coolest job ever. Review written for Readers' Favorite.

    "The book is filled with one-of-a-kind photos and memories of his time spent at concerts and how he eventually started getting work once he built up his portfolio. The craziest part was he had no intention of selling his work or sustaining a career as a concert photographer. His passion lied in filmmaking and was actually going to school to pursue a degree in that when he finally hung up his makeshift camera jacket."

    If you're a fan of 80s music, especially if you were lucky enough to attend any live shows by major acts during that era, Julian David Stone's new book will be an essential part of your Rock n' Roll book collection. Given the fact that Stone smuggled professional gear into most of the concerts he photographed, the images have a sense of immediacy and energy missing from the kind of stock shots you get from photographers sanctioned by the artists. Having attended shows by quite a few of the music If you're a fan of 80s music, especially if you were lucky enough to attend any live shows by major acts during that era, Julian David Stone's new book will be an essential part of your Rock n' Roll book collection. Given the fact that Stone smuggled professional gear into most of the concerts he photographed, the images have a sense of immediacy and energy missing from the kind of stock shots you get from photographers sanctioned by the artists. Having attended shows by quite a few of the musicians featured in the book, it took me back to a more adventurous time in live music when you could blow into town, score a ticket on the street or at the box office and see your favorite band up close without having to take out a second mortgage. Equally engaging and exciting are the stories the author tells about smuggling his gear into shows, getting hassled by roadies and security, including the pitfalls associated with capturing so many stunning images without being apprehended and ejected. The book is an impressive 12x12 inches, coincidentally the same size as a vinyl LP. In fact, going through it will make you want to dust off your turntable and spin those old copies of Purple Rain, Synchronicity and War. The printing quality of the images contained within is stunning, with sharp contrast and vivid color that you can only get from old-fashioned 35mm film. So if you're old enough to remember what it was like to hold up a cigarette lighter during a rock show encore instead of a smart phone, or if you want to know what it was like, this impressive new photo book will take you back to that storied time of live music in the 80s.

    I bought this book as a gift for a friend who is really into music based on the stunning images. I took some time to read it before gifting and it also has an interesting story about the photographer. I enjoyed this book even though I was not that into live music at the time. The quality of the photos was amazing - it's hard to believe that it was possible to take such great images at a show! My friend loved the book and I think this is the perfect gift for that 80's rocker in your life.

The photos of Prince alone are worth the price of admission though...

    Wow! This is an absolutely stunning collection of previously unpublished shots of some of the greatest rockers in their prime. If you were lucky enough to catch these acts during their heyday, this book is like an incredible yearbook! Wish I could have seen them all, but I saw a few. Sadly, too many are gone now (RIP Tom Petty, Prince, David Bowie...) -- But at least we have this book to remind us! Profound thanks to the author for these stellar photos and stories.

    It's great to flip through Julian's collection of rock n' roll photos and see seminal artists like Prince, Bono and Sting captured at the height of their creative powers in ecstatic moments of performance. The photos will make you wish you'd been there and if you were there, they'll awaken the memories. Kudos to Julian for his perseverance in documenting this rich slice of music history.

    This book was interesting to look through. Very large in size which helps you really get a good look at the photos. The photos themselves? Some great, others very good, and interesting in that he snuck in the camera to take them. It is inspiring as a photographer to look at the photos. It makes me want to take concert photos. Definitely an interesting book to look through.

    The photos were amazing. The notes describing the events draw you right into the venue on the night of the show. I will go back to the book again and again and I am sure to notice something new each time.

    Loved this book! Stunning photographs of your favorite classic bands from the eighties. Fascinating stories about what it was like to sneak cameras, lenses and film (yes, film!) into venues back in the days before cell phones. Makes a perfect coffee table book, certain to engage and entertain the reader!

    As a teenager of the 80s, Julian's close-up photos of the rock bands of my youth, hold such a sense of nostalgia for me, especially having grown-up in the Bay Area near the legendary Keystone.

Having known Julian since the 6th grade and remembering him with his french horn in jr. high school band, it was a fun and unexpected surprise to find out all of these many years later that he had sneaking his camera equipment in to capture such an amazing collection of live concert photos of the bands I "fan-girled" over back in the day!
