Monterey Pop Paperback – April 1, 1992
Top Customer Reviews
It was with great sadness I learned of his passing in March, so I wrote a memorial about Jim for the Dames of Dialogue blog. I shared some intimate stories about him that were passed on to me by actress Jenny McShane who knew Jim personally.
I knew of him through his awesome photography that captured rock-and-roll legends, including the Beatles, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, The Rolling Stones, Janis Joplin, Mamas and the Papas and many others...at work and in repose. I'm impressed that Marshall was the only photographer granted backstage access at what turned out to be the final Beatles concert at San Francisco's Candlestick Park in 1966. Good timing and his rapport with musicians also helped him catch Johnny Cash memorably "flipping the bird" at a 1969 performance at San Quentin Prison.
I had always wanted to acquire a copy of Monterey Pop by this legendary "Godfather of Rock Photography," so I finally did it in his memory; better late than never. The photos in this book were taken at the famous Monterey Pop Festival, of course. Those photos and his ones from Woodstock will always be my favorites. I'm glad Marshall got around to presenting his works in book format, making them accessible to more people.Read more ›
