Regan cemented his reputation with the great rock stars of his era by respecting their privacy — a choice that, ironically, welcomed him into some of the bands' most intimate moments. The result was 3 million concert photographs — including what legendary promoter Bill Graham called "the best shot ever taken" of Bob Dylan.
