"I’ve always been a fan of rock music and over the last half dozen years or so have been able to photograph some of my heroes. Many of my favorites are included here," said Kopp. 

As a professional photographer for many years my work has been featured in the New York Times, Elmore Magazine, Weird NJ, Drum Magazine, The Newark Star-Ledger’s Destination NJ Book, as well as many web sites, corporate brochures and advertisements," he continued.

"Thanks to Elmore Magazine and thewaster.com for their support and to all the festivals and venues who have allowed me to photograph the musicians. And thanks to the performers themselves for all the great music and good times!"
