A Front Row Seat to Rock’s Golden Age

In an era when there were fewer fences around celebrities, Gruen knew many of his subjects personally. After meeting John Lennon in 1972, his relationship with the rocker and Yoko Ono evolved into an enduring friendship. The “Rock Seen” book includes a 1975 shot of Lennon holding his newborn son Sean in their home as Ono looks on. Gruen says he simply knew when to put the camera away. Of hanging out with Lennon and his band Elephant’s Memory, he says, “We all liked tequila and finishing off the night with a good steak and a cognac–and John was always picking up the tab. Not only was he funny and smart, but he always ate well. Eventually I tried to show up at lunch or dinner time ‘til it became a joke. ‘Bob’s here. Must be time for dinner.’”

Life is what happens when your busy making other plans. John Lennon
