By Rick Friedman – Posted September 24, 2014

This photograph of Keith Richards, Chuck Berry and Leonard Cohen was taken prior to the Pen Literary Awards (Poets/Playwrights, Essayists/Editors, Novelists) at the John F. Kennedy Library in Boston on February 26, 2012.  I was on assignment for the J.F.K. Library and was the only photographer in the room when this image was made.  The 3 rock greats posed for me for the time it takes to make 3 frames.  The photograph has been published in “Rolling Stone” and Keith Richards has blogged about the photograph.

“One of the greatest things about being a freelance photojournalist is the great variety of assignments I get to cover and the places I get to go. I could be covering the President one day, spending the following day with a noted scientist or professor (or both) and the following day overseas on a travel story. I truly have the best job in the world”.
