Ken Regan Recalls Madonna Photo Shoot

Get ready to hear a lot about All Access: The Rock ‘n’ Roll Photography of Ken Regan, a brand new must-have coffee table book with a forward written by Keith Richards.

Sixteen photos from the October 18 release are being teased this week at RollingStone.com, while New York based Canadian newspaper correspondent Marie-Joelle Parent has posted a seductive lead-in to her forthcoming interview with Regan. In her piece, Parent reveals Regan’s all-time favorite photo (of Bob Dylan) and excerpts his memorable recollection of a Material Girl LA moment:

“I arrived at four a.m. and checked into the Mondrian hotel… As the elevator doors were closing, I lunged to open them and get in. Inside the car, judging by her trashy/chic style, was what I thought to be someone resembling a hooker. She got off on my floor and went to the end of the hallway. I went the other way.”

“I went down to the studio to await her arrival. When Madonna walked in without any media handlers (which I loved), I nearly fell over: It’s the woman from the elevator!”

Regan has led a charmed life, much like LA’s Norman Seeff and the few other photogs who belong to this rarefied rock ‘n’ roll club. For the rest of us, there is now this welcome new 300-page glimpse.
