Ken Regan/Camera 5

The following photos are from 'All Access: The Rock & Roll Photography of Ken Regan,' a new collection of the renowned photographer's work with a preface by Keith Richards.

Shutter Speed: the blink of an eye and to a photographer may be almost the same thing. But to capture a "moment" you need something else. You have to know the moment before it happens. To sense it, to feel it…Maybe like hearing a song before it has been written. Whatever this intuitive sense, is what my longtime friend has. Many times I've been on stage only to see Ken's beady left eye drilling through me with that wry grin under his camera and know he's got the shot he was after. I know a lot of photographers and they all have a personal style. When I see Ken in front of me, I know what he's waiting for…the moment! – Keith Richards
