If you rocked and rolled all night and partied every day, the Smithsonian Institution needs your help.
The world’s largest museum and research complex has sent out a call to music fans for any historic photographs they may have snapped of rock ‘n’ roll artists during their glory days.
“Send us your Jimi Hendrix pictures. Your Patti Smith shots. Your Radiohead photos. We want rock’n’roll as seen through your eyes,” the Smithsonian said in a statement.
The institution on Tuesday launched rockandroll.si.edu, a crowd-sourcing website created to collect and spotlight photographs each month.
The best images from the “greatest moments in the history of rock ‘n’ roll” will be chosen to appear in a book written by Bill Bentley that’s planned for fall 2017, officials said.
The website will also feature photos and text submitted by rock artists, band managers and professional photographers, according to the Smithsonian.
