Pete Townshend The Who Baron Wolman

Classic Rock Award

We are unbelievably proud to announce that Baron Wolman received a VIP Award at Classic Rock Mag’s annual ceremony tonight. Baron received his award from fellow rock photographer and old pal, Ross Halfin.

According to Dave Brolan, with whom Baron has had a wonderful long working friendship, in his acceptance speech Baron said he couldn’t understand how Pete could smash his guitar, but saw how great he looked and that he’s always wanted to do it. So he threw a camera onto the stage and it smashed… the place went wild, Pete came over and said “Well done!” and that he’d always liked his photos. They hugged & posed for pictures.  This is how rock history is made!

The Who Recording Tommy

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’.
