In addition, the photos include Van Morrison, Queen's Brian May and Roger Taylor, John Oates, Rod Stewart, Jon Bon Jovi, Barry Gibb, Bryan Adams, Steven Tyler, Billy Idol, Steve Winwood, Ray Davies, Joe Walsh, Mick Fleetwood, Peter Frampton, Peter Gabriel, Smokey Robinson, Foreigner's Mick Jones, Pink Floyd's David Gilmour and Nick Mason, Led Zeppelin's Robert Plant and John Paul Jones, Mark Knopfler, James Taylor, Donovan, Art Garfunkel, Don McLean, Tom Jones, Tito Jackson, Nile Rodgers, Slash, Neil Sedaka, ex-Who/Faces drummer Kenney Jones and more.
