Jim Marshall

Sad news today, iconic music photographer Jim Marshall passed away at the age of 74. If you don’t know Marshall’s name, I’m sure you know his photos. It’s pretty crazy because I just posted a photo of Marshall on the site yesterday in the Behind Photography post…

“Mr. Marshall was as well known for the extraordinary images that he captured as the extraordinary access that he had to some of the most famous names in music. He was a favored photographer of Hendrix, the Rolling Stones and Janis Joplin, and he was the only photographer allowed backstage at the Beatles’ last concert, in San Francisco in 1966. He was also the chief photographer at Woodstock.”
