Biographical Note

Tom Wright was born in Alabama in 1944. In the early 1960s he studied photography at England's Ealing Art School, where he met Pete Townshend, founder of the rock group The Who . Wright became The Who's official photographer in 1967 and chronicled the group's development, including their farewell tour (1991). From 1967 to 1969 he managed the Grande Ballroom in Detroit, Michigan, where The Who's rock opera Tommy premiered. In addition to his extensive work with The Who, Wright also served as a photographer or road manager for The Rolling Stones, Rod Stewart and the Faces, The James Gang, J. D. Souther, The Thunderbirds, Elvis Costello, Bob Seger, The Eagles and others. In 1998 he was living and working in San Antonio, Texas.


Scope and Contents

Tom Wright's photographs of rock performers, audiences, and concert venues comprise an intimate, behind-the-scenes history of rock and roll from the 1960s to the 1990s in the United States and Great Britain. Material related to British rock group The Who is the major focus of the collection. Also included are videos and CDs of The Who, a tape of Pete Townshend describing Tommy before its first U.S. performance, and a portfolio of sepia toned photographs of Joe Walsh.
