Praise For…

“There’s something infinite and timeless about Daniel Corrigan’s photos, and in this long-awaited collection, you can almost hear the sounds of music erupting off the pages. Corrigan has always been an artist capturing artists, and Heyday is stuffed with so many moments of joy, passion, chaos, and rapture, it’s difficult to believe it’s the work of just one photographer. All in all, a glorious chronicle of some of the greatest times of our lives.”
—Jim Walsh, journalist, songwriter, and author of Bar Yarns and Manic-Depressive Mixtapes and The Replacements: All Over But The Shouting: An Oral History

“Daniel Corrigan’s iconic photos first appeared to me as a window into an exciting music scene happening in my hometown. He took the pictures I most associate with my favorite bands, and captured both the cool and the intimate moments of rock-and-roll bands and their audiences. Years later, in my own band, I was thrilled to be photographed by Dan. These images tell a story of a rock scene that is still important, influential, and timeless.”
—Craig Finn, singer/songwriter/guitarist for the Hold Steady

“I remember the first photo shoot we did with Dan. It was over in the warehouse district. He put us on a pile of tires. I like that he doesn’t just think three women need to be in a flower garden or all dolled up. I thought right away, I like this guy already.”
—Lori Barbero, drummer/singer for Babes in Toyland

“When Dan came along on our European tour, he jumped in faster than Hunter S. Thompson joining a motorcycle gang. With his camera, Dan has always been a ‘gonzo’ guerilla photojournalist—not to mention his work as a studio photographer and filming Soul Asylum’s first major label video. Dan is always up for an adventure and risking his life and financial livelihood to get the shot. Soul Asylum and every other Minneapolis rock band are in debt to Dan.”
—Dave Pirner, singer/songwriter/guitarist for Soul Asylum

“I always appreciated the way Corrigan captured us. He makes it look similar to how it feels.”
—Slug, rapper/songwriter for Atmosphere
