"For me it was a magical mystical moment. I was onstage - to the side, of course - with arguably one of the greatest guitarists of all time. I quickly found myself in the "zone," totally mesmerized by Jimi and his music, totally in synch with the band. As pretentious as it may sound, I even felt as if I were playing my Nikon, the fourth instrument in the Experience trio." - Baron Wolman
Settling in Haight-Ashbury in the 60's, Wolman was surrounded by Janis and the Grateful Dead in close-by digs. Wolman was soon accompanying journalist Jann Wenner to the now famous and genre-defining Mills College conference on rock music. Wenner happened to be the founder of Rolling Stone magazine. He liked Wolman's style, offered him a job and Wolman launched as the first official document-er of the new psychedelic age. Beginning with the magazine's opening issue, Wolman's photographs were windows on the parade of the different, the delightful and the doomed, and his pictures became the gold standard by which rock photography would be measured.
