A Look Back: 30 years of iconic rock and roll in Utah

First Published May 31 2013 07:18 am • Last Updated Jun 07 2013 06:25 am

Each Friday, The Salt Lake Tribune presents images from its archives in a special series called A Look Back. This week’s installment features photos of The Rolling Stones, Black Flag, REM and a number of other iconic bands as shot by The Salt Lake Tribune’s Rick Egan, who has been with the paper since 1984. "Concerts are hard. The lights are always changing. The people are always moving. It’s not like shooting anything else," Egan said. "I’ve only been knocked out once." It happened when he was punched by a fan at a Jimmy Cliff show. Egan started photographing bands in high school in the late 1970s. "That was back in the day when you could just walk in to a show with a camera and nobody cared."

Every gallery of the series is available at www.sltrib.com/topics/lookback.
