RELENTLESS presents 180 rock & roll photographs with a fine arts eye: 40 iconic, unseen photographs of Springsteen before he was The Boss and the E Street Band before it had a name, plus 140 newly discovered photos of Jerry Garcia, Rod Stewart, Stevie Wonder, Paul Simon, Ron Wood, Al Green, Steve Winwood and Traffic, Chicago, Blood Sweat & Tears, Melanie, Taj Mahal, Poco, the Flying Burrito Brothers and more.


The photos are by Ed Gallucci, Crawdaddy's go-to photographer.  His portraits of musicians and celebrities have been published in Rolling Stone, Playboy, and Penthouse, and his editorial photographs have appeared on 40 covers of Newsweek.  Accompanying the photography is my reportage on the scene at which each shot was taken.  Every picture tells a story, and RELENTLESS tells the story of every picture.  Included is Springsteen's first interview ever, which I conducted in December 1972 and published in Crawdaddy, plus two other of my Springsteen profiles, unseen since their publication in the '70s, one in the studio and on the Asbury Park boardwalk during the making of Born to Run, and the other in greasy spoons across America during the creation of Darkness on the Edge of Town.  The three profiles total 20,000 words.  The book also presents the discovery, first interview with and 1972 photographs of the real Rosalita, Bruce's girlfriend Diane Lozito.
