Sweet photos of classic rockers on stage in the Hub

Because decorating your pad with posters of Mystikal dry-humping college girls on stage isn't likely to impress anyone but Mystikal, opt instead to get a sweet shot from The Boston Years. The retro collection of artsy b&w prints showcases iconic rockers on stage in (and around) the Hub, and includes everyone from Anthrax and Billy Idol, to The Cars, Talking Heads, and Bo Diddley, all shot between 1979-1986 by an AIB-educated, CT photographer/professor who's seen better days, but only because The Boss covers it.

Have difficulty choosing betwixt:

Bruce Springsteen Long before he rocked out Fenway Park, a significantly younger Bruce busted out his favorite white fedora and black muscle tee to jam at University of Hartford, and yes, to answer your inevitable follow-up question, they do have an a capella group called HartAttack.

Joan Jett Lose the Bad Reputation you got as a member of HartAttack by snagging this silver print featuring JJ headlining Lansdowne St's The Metro, which is shot so close you can almost catch the sweat dripping off her salacious face.

Cheap Trick Guitarist Rick Nielsen's deftly captured in all his mischievous, wide-eyed, and flipped-up-hat-brim glory while playing at The Paradise, which, even then, was pretty Unpredictable and Ghetto Fabulous.
