Mick Jagger and Anita Pallenberg on the set of Performance, London, 1968
It’s not fair. Really. Whilst complaining that he missed out by not getting a chance to live in Swinging Sixties London, Baron blithely explains how “…after The Who finished work in the studio Pete (Townshend) invited us for dinner and later decided we should go over to the film set in which Mick Jagger was shooting his new movie, ‘Performance’… The relationships were all a little complex; Anita was Keith’s girlfriend who had been with Brian Jones before and was now in a movie doing love scenes with Mick.”

Photographing Jann Wenner, San Francisco, 1968
“Every Picture Tells A Story – Baron Wolman, The Rolling Stone Years.” Its 176 pages are filled with photos and text. Some of the photos have never been seen; none of the words have ever been read – other than by me and the editors, of course. It’s a picture book with text, the stories behind the photos. For years I’ve been asked to talk about the photos, how they came to be, what happened on assignment at the various shoots. This book will answer those questions and more. I and my camera were fortunate to be around at a seminal time in the history of our country and the music business. The book is my “thank you” for the privilege.
