Photographer Mick Rock, often referred to as "The Man Who Shot the Seventies," has passed away at the age of 72 years old. Rock's subjects included bands like Thin Lizzy, Mötley Crüe, David Bowie, The Sex Pistols, and The Ramones, and even was used on covers of albums like Queen II and Sheer Heart Attack by Queen.

A statement on Rock's Twitter page confirmed his passing.

"It is with the heaviest of hearts that we share our beloved psychedelic renegade Mick Rock has made the Jungian journey to the other side," the statement read. "Those who had the pleasure of existing in his orbit, know that Mick was always so much more than 'The Man Who Shot the 70s.' He was a photographic poet — a true force of nature who spent his days doing exactly what he loved, always in his own delightfully outrageous way."
