Description: It has been said that rock ‘n’ roll was a boys-only club in the 1960s and 1970s. Among the few women who gained entry was a high-spirited, half-Sicilian and half-Cherokee beauty named Nancy Lee Andrews. As a top Ford model, Andrews was the perfect complement to one of the world’s biggest rock stars, former Beatle Ringo Starr.
"The difference between a good photographer and a great one is access," declares Nancy Lee Andrews in her introduction to this book. "Because of my relationship with Ringo Starr, I was offered a front row seat to the show."
These photographs, taken over a decade beginning in 1970, are a personal journey through Andrews's life at the peak of pop culture history that captures some of the greatest rock and other icons of our lifetime. It's also an intimate view of the stars with whom she shared those amazing years. Seen through the lens of Andrews, this fascinating visual portrayal captures some of the greatest rock and other icons of our lifetime.
