“I could tell you, but then I’d have to kill you.” A very limited edition of fifty (50) gorgeous 13×19 inch fine art poster prints will be unveiled at the Rock Art Show in Chicago this weekend. The print is exclusive to the Rock Art Show and is reasonably priced at $75. The subject must remain a secret or there will be a rush on the prints. I can tell you this, however. 11×14 inch pigments prints of this photo of Janis Joplin with Big Brother and the Holding Company will also be available, a poignant shot taken late in 1967, in a small park in Marin County, around the time we startedRolling Stone and before Janis and the band had become super stars. Hope to see y’all there…
“When I photographed The Band in performance on Winterland’s big stage it was virtually impossible to get the entire group into a single frame. I tried from a variety of angles but somehow the five of them were never arranged in such a way that I could fit them all into a good photo at one time. At the larger venues live photography presented considerable challenges, much different from shooting at the smaller clubs.”
Jimmy Page’s “heavy artillery,” Led Zeppelin, Day On The Green, Oakland Coliseum, CA, 1977
“I myself didn’t realize that this line-up of guitars belonged to the illustrious guitarist Jimmy Page. Embarrassingly, I didn’t even know that much about Led Zeppelin when I photographed them. I simply liked that they were a hugely photogenic band; to me that counted for a lot.” Baron Wolman, The Rolling Stone Years.
This brilliant color photograph of Jimmy Page’s guitars on-stage in 1977 is newly available, strictly limited in an edition of 50 prints. Each 16″ x 20″ fine art photographic print is individually numbered and has been hand-signed by both Jimmy Page and Baron Wolman!
Head over to Jimmypage.com for more details on owning one of these limited edition, highly collectible photographs.

Joan Baez, Big Sur Folk Festival, Esalen, Big Sur, CA, 1969
Joan Baez joined the Occupy Wall Street protesters in New York City before their encampment was shut down by Mayor Bloomberg a couple of weeks ago. Baez and many of her peers gave us some of our most enduring protest songs, making their presence felt in global counter-culture since the 60s. Decades later there is no excuse for the disparity between the haves and the have-nots in this land of ours, and for this imbalance we cannot give thanks. This thanksgiving let us, however, show our appreciation for all compassionate and generous contributions to our collective conscience and to today’s protesters for keeping up the good work of Baez and company.

“In 1970, I had to shoot a James Brown New Year’s Eve concert, that is, once I finally made it through his multiple layers of security. He had more security than I had ever seen; everybody checked me out, “What are you doing here? Does James know about this?” Big black guys made me very aware of being a small white guy. But once they approved you, once they brought you in with the “family,” they left you alone, you could shoot what you wanted, and you were golden.”
