This classic hardcover book is a collection of photographs taken by one of rock's greatest photographers, Jim Marshall. Within the pages, you can find 124 duotone images that span a period of over 40 years, including virtually all of the artists that define rock and roll. Although out of print for years, this book was republished by Wolfgang's in 2005.
Regarded by many as "THE rock and roll photographer," Jim Marshall's career has always been focused on the documentation of people, especially musicians. Unlimited access to the musicians coupled with an inviolate sense of trust between subject and photographer allowed Marshall special opportunities: he was chief photographer at Woodstock and was the only photographer allowed backstage at the Beatles final concert. Since he demanded total access, Marshall lived 24-7 with his subjects, and his pictures reflect affection for the artists as they describe the musicians' character. Marshall has said that it's no accident if his pictures seem musical because, "I see the music."
