Dan Fong's previously unpublished rock photos on display this Friday at the Gallery on Santa Fe

Generally, when you speak with someone with strong ties to rock history, you either get an earful of tedious name-dropping or you're forced to endure an exhaustive lecture about how kids today just don't get it. This is not the case with Dan Fong, the famed Denver rock photographer who has shot legendary acts such as the Rolling Stones, the Who and the Doobie Brothers, among others.

Fong (whose previously unpublished archive of rock photos will be on display this Friday, July 6, at the Gallery at 760 Santa Fe Street), on the other hand, casually drifts into intimate, backstage stories on music's most treasured icons without a trace of pretense or ego. "I've been doing rock photography since the late '60s, but today is a very exciting time to be taking pictures. Denver has such a great music scene."
