episode 1: Punk, Post Punk & New Wave with Award Winning Photographer Michael Grecco

Michael Grecco is an award-winning and internationally renowned celebrity photographer and director, noted for his iconic celebrity portraits, magazine covers and editorial images.

Early in his photography career, he worked for the Associated Press by day and hung at the Boston clubs at night. Documenting the punk, post-punk and new wave scene that thrived there, he was able to create a retrospective of that iconic time in his book, “Punk, Post Punk, New Wave: Onstage, Backstage, In Your Face: 1978-1991.”

In our discussion, Michael talks about the venues that were so central to the scene, such as The Rathskeller, Paradise Rock Club, The Channel, Jonathan Swift's and The Bradford Ballroom. He recalls unforgettable moments with Billy Idol, seeing U2 play in the U.S. for the first time, hanging out with the late, great Pete Shelley of the Buzzcocks and even spending time with David Crosby.
