Jim Marshall, R.I.P.

Posted by Ezra Ace Caraeff on Wed, Mar 24, 2010 at 12:29 PM

It's being reported that Jim Marshall passed away last night at the age of 74. Arguably the finest rock and roll photographer ever, Marshall might not be a household name to most, but please watch this short documentary on him to see some of the best rock photos ever, plus a candid look at the soulful artist behind the lens.

Full disclosure: I met Marshall around 1987 or so. He took photos of my dad, brother, and myself. He scared the crap out of me.
