"Ricky is one of those rare individuals who has the uncanny ability to always find himself in the right place at the right time, and he has the pictures to prove it...Whatever function, show, party, or moment in time was occurring, Ricky would be there, camera round his neck, going for his shot in his old-school, Kevin McHale, off-balance, get-the-shot-then-bust-his-ass style."--Mike D
"Ricky Powell is one of the best photographers of our time."--Run of Run-D.M.C.
"This book is the wham-bango!"--Cypress Hill
"Whether it was the birth of the Beastie Boys or Run-D.M.C. or Public Enemy, Ricky was there...I could go on and on, but in short, Ricky's the bomb!"--Fab 5 Freddy
"Ricky is one of the best photographers I've ever worked with-- and I've worked with a lot."--LL Cool J
