PLAY | 06:25

“When the Stones Came to Town: Rock ‘n’ Roll Photos from the 1970s” is a book by Fred Case and Eric Dregni, published by the Minnesota Historical Society. Minneapolis photographer Fred Case shot hundreds of photos of rock and blues musicians in the 1970’s, both in the Twin Cities and when he traveled. His images capture the stars in action onstage and behind the scenes. His stories about photographing and talking with the icons are relayed in a new book by Minneapolis writer Eric Dregni.
