About Pleased to Meet You
Just prior to the Rolling Stones’ 1972 world tour, Michael Putland was asked by the Stones to be their official tour photographer.
He happily accepted, and then set about creating the classic images in this volume. Capturing the very essence of the excitement and fascination generated by the band.
His physical closeness to the Stones – he was often only feet away from them on stage – has resulted in a wealth of memorable images. From stunning live shots to intimate moments backstage.
Michael’s archive documents in breathtaking detail the Seventies, which many consider to be the most interesting decade in the band’s history, and beyond – resulting in a photographic history second to none.
Born in 1947, Michael grew up in Harrow where he took his first pictures at the age of nine before leaving school at sixteen. Then he worked as an assistant to various photographers. Including Time – Life photographer, Walter Curtain and the legendary motor racing photographer, Louis Klemantaski. In 1969 he set up his own studio and by 1971, he was the official photographer for the British music magazine Disc & Music Echo. His first assignment for them that year was to photograph Mick Jagger in London.
