(Margaret Regan, Tucson Weekly) Back in the days when the Rolling Stones still ruled the airwaves — in 1974, to be precise — Mick Jagger sang a song about why he did what he did for a living.
With a single line, he pushed back hard against critics of popular music.
“I know, it’s only rock ‘n’ roll” he sneered, “but I like it, like it, yes, I do.”
Mick isn’t the only one. Who Shot Rock ‘n’ Roll, a giant photography exhibition of rock ‘n’ roll greats (including Jagger as leopard by photog Albert Watson), is breaking attendance records at the Tucson Museum of Art.
“Everybody loves rock ‘n’ roll,” says Julie Sasse, the TMA’s chief curator. “We had 2,000 people at the opening.”
