Denis O' Regan, a former Lloyd's underwriter, is one of a trio of photographers displaying his work in an exhibition of rare and unseen photographs from three decades of rock iconography.

Its time-line spans the glam rock era, through punk, grunge and Britpop to the present day and shows various rock stars snapped in the heat of the moment.

The photos include O'Regan's personal favourite of the late Joe Strummer emerging from a club, surrounded by grinning punks.

'Can You Handle It?' opens on Friday at the Sony Walkman Gallery in London.
