Jim Marshall exhibit in SF

Gallery 291 in San Francisco is hosting the premier show by one of the greatest rock photographers of all time. A San Francisco native and staff photographer for Rolling Stone in the earliest of days, Jim Marshall was backstage at so many epic events in music history it boggles the mind. We’ve all seen the infamous shot of Johnny Cash reacting to Marshall’s request for a picture “for the warden” at Folsom Prison (I’d post that one but we try to keep things kid friendly around here). He was the principle photographer at Woodstock and the Monterey Pop Festival (incredible shots of Otis Redding and Jimi setting his guitar on fire); his work adorns the covers of The Allman Bros. Live At The Fillmore East, Cream’s Best of Cream, Jimi Hendrix’s In The West and many others; he was the only photographer allowed backstage at The Beatles final concert at Candlestick Park. Hard to imagine this is the first extended showing of his work, no?

Marshall will be at the opening reception at Gallery 129 tonight from 6 to 9 PM at 291 Geary Street, Floor 5 in San Francisco.

A great slide show is on the gallery’s website here. More photos here.

Quick note about the tunes

The mp3s on this blog are to give folks a little taste. Imagine they're those little pouches on the bag your Sunday paper comes in. You know, the one's with a packet containing just enough toothpaste to brush your teeth once or twice. They are left up for a limited time. If you find something you like support the artists by dragging your friends to their shows and/or buying their CDs/records/schwag. If you are the artist (or their label/representative) and don't want an mp3 on here, please email me (mike@nowhearthismusic.com) and I'll remove it posthaste.
