A Birthday Gift from Me to You!

George Harrison, Apple Corps offices, London, 1968

My book, “The Rolling Stone Years” is one year young this month. And what a year it has been, with a book tour that took me to cities and countries far and wide, from Russia and Australia, to the UK and the Netherlands, from NYC to LA to San Francisco to Kansas to Tucson to Austin and beyond.

To commemorate this exciting year, as a birthday gift from me to you, my favorite photo of George Harrison is now available to visitors to my website, but only through the end of August 2012.

The photograph is an absolutely gorgeous 11×14 inch pigment print produced by my friend, master printer, Tony Bonanno of Santa Fe. But wait, there’s more! With each signed-by-me print, you will also receive this limited edition “Rolling Stone Years” tee-shirt. Believe it or not, the cost of the iconic George Harrison print and the tee is only $250, and shipping is free ONLY to addresses within the continental United States. International orders will be charged US $50 for shipping.

Birthdays only happen once a year, so come on and celebrate this one with us.

Payment is easiest using the “Buy Now” button from PayPal on the Fotobaron website.

Richard Brautigan

Richard Brautigan, San Francisco, 1968

‘Jubilee Hitchhiker: The Life and Times of Richard Brautigan’ is out now at a retailer near you. Baron photographed Brautigan in 1968 and  in ‘The Rolling Stone Years‘ book Baron talks about how he “turned him (Jann Wenner) on to a poet named Richard Brautigan. “Jann, he’s writing this terrific poetry, kind of a hippie poet in a way but not really and I’ve got these great pictures of him.” Eventually Brautigan produced a poem in each issue; for a while he became the Rolling Stone poet laureate.”

Lacy

Lacy, San Francisco, 1968

For Rolling Stone’s ‘Groupies’ issue Baron had the hard task of photographing some gorgeous girls. “…we all sat around smoking and Lacy was toking this perfectly rolled joint while I took her picture. For another shot I arranged all the current issues of Rolling Stone in front of her. This was early 1968 and I don’t know how many subscribers we had – there were more newsstand sales than subscribers – but this portrait of Lacy became the picture we sent as a Christmas card thanking them all for subscribing to Rolling Stone.”

The Who Recording Tommy

The Who with Kit Lambert recording Tommy, IBC Studios, London, 1968

This book is packed full of behind-the-scenes gems. Here we find Baron in the studio while The Who record what will become the album ‘Tommy’. It’s 1968, Baron’s photographing George Harrison on this trip and it’s after this session with the Who that he went to visit Mick Jagger on the set of ‘Performance’.

George Harrison

George Harrison, Apple Corps offices, London, 1968

We’re thrilled to have a photograph from a quiet afternoon with George Harrison, at the Apple offices in London, featured in this trailer for Martin Scorsese’s new documentary. It’s due for broadcast on HBO in October. Some wonderful quotes in here. Enjoy!

Janis Joplin – Concert For One

Janis Joplin, Belvedere Street Studio, San Francisco, 1968

“I needed to get some color shots of Janis, but there were no concerts scheduled so she came to the studio… I don’t know what goes on in the head of performers; maybe they either perform or they don’t perform… As I recall Janis could not “not” perform, so for an hour she gave me the gift of a Janis Joplin live performance. I call it “The Concert For One.” I was taking pictures and she was singing just for me alone.”

Jeff Beck’s Hot Rod

Jeff Beck, S&C Ford, San Francisco, 1968

“…(Beck) asked me if I knew where he could buy an American hot rod so I took him to the showroom of a car dealer who had one which was for sale. Jeff was immediately fascinated with the car and decided to buy it on the spot…” Read more in the book and listen to the story via this podcast.
