Ever wondered what to do to wile away the time when you are stuck at a railway station waiting for a train, other than staring aimlessly at the arrivals and departures board?  Well, through February, Glasgow’s venerable Central Station, one of the busiest train stations in Scotland, found a novel way for passengers waiting for their trains to take in an exclusive, free-to-view classic rock photography exhibition.

 

The 32 images were all taken by the popular rock photographer, Denis O’Regan, as he brought his ‘Rock Through The Ages’ exhibition, showcasing music legends of the 60s, 70s and 80s direct to the general public, with well-loved and notorious British and international music stars whom he has spent more than 40 years photographing, both on and off stage, including David Bowie, Oasis, Pink Floyd and the Rolling Stones; and he was also the official photographer at Live Aid in 1985 at Wembley Stadium.  

 

The exhibition of the renowned rock photographer’s selected favourites is all part of a year-long tour of popular railway stations across the country.  “I have photographed great musicians and travelled to extraordinary places to capture classic moments in music,” said O’Regan when he launched the tour at Liverpool’s Lime St. Station in January. “Railway stations are a great way of connecting people with art in their everyday lives and it is fantastic to be able to share my photos with rail passengers and station users around the country.”
