When Koh Hasebe became a rock photographer in the 1960s, the word "rock" didn't even exist in Japan. "It never even came to mind to try to become a rock photographer," the 85-year-old lensman tells Rolling Stone in Tokyo.
It's about 25 hours before U2 kick off their Innocence + Experience tour at Vancouver's Rogers Arena and Bono is sitting on a plush couch in a backstage lounge near the Edge.
Neil Young isn't the only rock legend attempting to change the way we listen to music. Fresh off the surprise release of Songs of Innocence, U2 and Apple are reportedly working on a new digital music format that, according to Time, "will prove so irresistibly exciting to music fans that it will tempt them again into buying music — whole albums as well as individual tracks."
Along with revealing the new iPhone 6 and a smartwatch, Apple announced on Tuesday that it is giving away the new U2 album to every iTunes Store customer.
U2 fans may get their hands on a new album before the ball drops on New Year's Eve, possibly as early as next month. Reports circulated a few months ago that U2 were delaying the album until 2015 so they would have enough time to work on material with producer Paul Epworth, but a spokesperson for the band has told Rolling Stone that that timing is inaccurate: "We've always said an album is expected this year."
