Album Info: Jimi Hendrix performed on the final evening of the festival, June 18, 1967. Brian Jones of The Rolling Stones, who did not perform at the festival, introduced The Jimi Hendrix Experience. Hendrix was almost entirely unknown in America at that time but was very well known amongst the rock stars of London, where he had been playing club gigs and recruiting the members of his trio.

Album Info: Otis Redding was at the pinnacle of his career at that time. He was booked as the closing act on the Saturday night of the festival, June 17, 1967. Otis came to the stage following a set by his backup band, Booker T. & the MG's. However, Otis' high charged performance ran into a time limit under the festival's permit, resulting in his having time to perform only 5 short songs. Otis died less than 6 months later.

Jim Marshall (1936-2010) was an American photographer known for his iconic images that captured the essence of the music and cultural scene of the 1960s and 1970s. His work became synonymous with rock 'n' roll, and he is regarded as one of the greatest music photographers of all time.

Born on 3 February 1936, in Chicago, Illinois, James Joseph Marshall developed an early passion for photography. He received his first camera, a Kodak Brownie, at the age of nine and began experimenting with capturing the world around him. As a teenager, Marshall worked as an assistant to a local portrait photographer, honing his skills and developing his own unique style.

In the early 1960s, Marshall moved to San Francisco, where he became immersed in the burgeoning counterculture and music scene. He began photographing jazz musicians, but it was his love for rock 'n' roll that would define his career. Marshall's ability to blend seamlessly into the music scene allowed him to capture intimate and candid moments of some of the greatest musicians of all time.

One of Marshall's most famous photographs is the image of Jimi Hendrix burning his guitar on stage at the Monterey Pop Festival in 1967. This image encapsulated the rebellious spirit of the era and became an enduring symbol of the power and energy of rock music. Marshall's other notable subjects included Janis Joplin, Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Johnny Cash, and Miles Davis, among many others.

Marshall's photographs went beyond the stage and studio; he captured the essence of the artists themselves, documenting their lives on the road and offstage. His images showcased the raw emotions, vulnerability, and humanity of these legendary figures, making them relatable to audiences around the world.


Throughout his career, Marshall was known for his relentless work ethic and dedication to his craft. He was often described as a maverick, unafraid to push boundaries and capture the truth of the moment. His photographs reflected the cultural and political climate of the time, and his ability to connect with his subjects on a personal level allowed him to capture moments of rare authenticity.

Despite his success, Marshall remained humble and often preferred the company of musicians over the glitz and glamour of the industry. He valued his relationships with the artists he photographed, and many of them considered him a friend as well as a trusted documentarian.

In addition to his music photography, Marshall also ventured into other genres, including street photography and portraiture. His work has been exhibited in numerous galleries and museums worldwide and has been featured on album covers, book covers, and in publications such as Rolling Stone, Life, and Vanity Fair.

Jim Marshall passed away on 24 March 2010, leaving behind a rich legacy of images that continue to inspire and resonate with music lovers and photography enthusiasts alike. His photographs capture a transformative period in history and remain a testament to the power of visual storytelling. Today, his work continues to be celebrated and recognized as an indelible part of the cultural fabric of the 20th century.
