Another Reason Why San Francisco Rocks: Jim Marshall

November 5, 2009


Going off of Meghan’s post yesterday for A Heartbeat and A Guitar, have you seen the work of Jim Marshall? This guy is a local BAD ASS veteran of rock photography… and he’ll be gracing the Make Out Room with his presence tonight.

Marshall‘s responsible for some of the most iconic shots in history- Janis, Johnny, Jimi, and Bob…. drop a name, this guy’s seen ’em all. Wow. I plan on probably feeling too starstruck to throw myself at his feet with exclamations of “I’m not worthy!”

So even if you can’t make it out tonight, be sure to check out Marshall’s collection online– the Bay Area should know and take pride in one of its talented residents. And not only are his photos epic, but his accompanying explanations are fascinating. I especially love the set dedicated to San Francisco Bands.

Again, just Wow.
