Shot! The Psycho-Spiritual Mantra of Rock. The official trailer for the film has just been released and you can watch it right here!
Mick’s career reads as a who’s who of rock & roll in the 1970s with Iggy Pop, Lou Reed, Rod Stewart, Blondie and Queen all featuring in his work, these are images that have served to become some of the most iconic rock photos from the era. Mick’s honest narrative goes tells many a story, including that of his drug addiction and a near-death experience he faced in his youth.
Like Mick says in the opening: “It’s an energy thing”.
Shot! will be released in cinemas on April 7th, while simultaneously premiering on OnDemand, Amazon Video and iTunes.
