Jim Marshall

Jim Marshall, Oakland, 1970

One night at Newport, Jim and I were both shooting at an outdoor stage. It was crystal clear with a full bright moon hanging overhead, a perfect summer night, a night I’ll never forget. I looked up and said, “Jim, think about it. Those mother-fuckers are walking on the moon right now while we’re shooting this concert. It was July 20, 1969 and Neil Armstrong was up there in the sky talking about “one small step for man…” Had you asked Jim, he would have told you how time suddenly stood still for us and what an amazing moment that was.”
