Jim Marshall February 3, 1936—March 24, 2010

Jim Marshall has died. He was 74. His website. I spent the night I learned of his death listening to albums which featured his music. I don't know if I'm unique in that I have mental list of people I would like to have a beer with. Jim Marshall was on my list. The more I learned about his life the higher he climbed on that list. If you were only to consider the part of his life where he was a music photographer you'd only have part of the story. Before the music he did great work covering the civil rights movement. A very interesting man and a life well lived.

Andrew Hetherington took his point & shoot to a lecture Jim gave at Nutopia:
