rock photographer Jim Marshall, RIP (new book out, was scheduled to appear at the John Varvatos store TONIGHT)

Jim Marshall

Legendary rock and roll photographer Jim Marshall died in his sleep last night. He was 74. Marshall is best known for his iconic shots of Jimi Hendrix burning his guitar at Monterey Pop, The Who greeting the sunrise at Woodstock and Johnny Cash flipping the bird at San Quentin. He was chief photographer at Woodstock and was the only photographer allowed backstage at The Beatles’ final concert. Marshall had a special affinity with rock and roll artists, as he said himself, “I see the music.”

Jim Marshall had just published “Match Prints” (a new book by Jim Marshall and fellow photographer Timothy White) and was due to appear at a media event for the book tonight in New York City. [Gibson]
