JOSH GROBAN, KINGS OF LEON, THE FLAMING LIPS, AND PATTI LABELLE GO ON THE RECORD WITH MICK ROCK, AUGUST 2 ON OVATION TV

New Ovation TV Original Series Hosted by Legendary Rock Photographer

Mick Rock Features an Intimate Portrait of Each Musical Guest, Followed by a Special Performance

SANTA MONICA, CA - June 25, 2015 Iggy Pop, David Bowie, Blondie, Queen... there's one rock 'n' roll photographer who has captured iconic images of them all on film: Mick Rock (aka, "The Man Who Shot the Seventies"). Today, Mick is as in-demand as ever; photographing legends-in-the-making like Snoop Dog, Daft Punk, The Killers, Cee Lo Green, and the Black Keys, among many others, but this summer, he'll come out from behind the camera to host his own show: On the Record with Mick Rock, premiering on Ovation TV Sunday, August 2 at 8 pm ET.

Featuring guest stars Josh Groban, Kings of Leon, The Flaming Lips and Patti LaBelle, On The Record With Mick Rock goes into each of the artists' hometowns to check out the sights and sounds that inspire them. A unique spin on the musician profile series, the show's stripped-down style and Mick's unapologetic rapport with his guests produces candid conversations and musical performances not usually seen on television.

Here are the highlights of each episode:

ON THE RECORD WITH MICK ROCK: Josh Groban - Premieres Sunday, August 2 at 8 pm ET. Native Angeleno and multi-platinum recording artist Josh Groban takes Mick on an inspiring tour of Los Angeles, paying homage to the high school teacher who gave him the confidence to succeed, stopping by the after-school Shakespeare program he personally supports and treating Mick to a moving performance of his song, Hidden Away.

ON THE RECORD WITH MICK ROCK: Kings of Leon - Premieres Sunday, August 9 at 8 pm ET. Mick discovers how the Grammy(R) Award-winning rock stars Kings of Leon escaped their Pentecostal roots to find a home in Nashville's evolving music scene. The band dishes on its rocky past and gives Mick a tour of country music's hometown, ending the day in the Kings' private studio for an exclusive jam session.

ON THE RECORD WITH MICK ROCK: Flaming Lips - Premieres Sunday, August 16 at 8 pm ET. Mick touches down in Oklahoma City to hang with the Flaming Lips and uncovers how these masters of psychedelic rock have become the surprising hometown heroes. Lead singer Wayne Coyne shows off his wacky art gallery, fills Mick in on his all-night parties with Miley Cyrus and ends the day with a performance of the group's hit song, Do You Realize??

ON THE RECORD WITH MICK ROCK: Patti LaBelle - Premieres Sunday, August 23 at 8 pm ET. GRAMMY(R) Hall of Fame artist Patti LaBelle takes Mick on a personal tour of Philadelphia, visiting the theater that launched her career and stopping by her childhood home where she first found her voice with a broomstick microphone. After grabbing a bite at her favorite soul food spot in the City of Brotherly Love, Patti invites Mick into her living room for an intimate performance of What Can I Do For You?

A sneak peek of On the Record with Mick Rock will be available on VOD and xfinity.com as of July 26 and all episodes will also be available on those platforms the next day after each episode's linear premiere. VOD viewers will also get three extra, exclusive clips per episode.

On the Record with Mick Rock is produced by Tricon Entertainment and RCG (Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day and Glenn Howerton; It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia) for Ovation TV.
