Jim Marshall is Deader Than Dead

Just found out about this now. Sad to see one of the best music photographers pass into the big flash in the sky, but he left a hell of a legacy here on earth.

He got his start in high school, taught himself for the most part, and is responsible for a few infamous photos including but not limited to:

1: Jimi Hendrix lighting his guitar on fire
2: Johnny Cash giving the finger
3: Janis Joplin loking hot but probably strung out

Dude was a great photographer, and it's probably no surprise that my work is influenced by his.
