"Baron Wolman loved your book!"

What an incredible honor from the 'godfather' of rock photography! From Baron Wolman's bio...

The year was ’67, and everyone was grooving.

Fueled by the music and the times, a 21-year-old journalist named Jann Wenner gathered some friends and began a revolution in ink. Named Rolling Stone, this newsprint rag captured the era, defined it in print and pictures, and helped form a generation. Among the friends that Wenner interested in his project was Wolman, then a 30-year-old freelance photojournalist. Already an established photographer for such glossy mags as Life and Look...Wenner invited Wolman to shoot for the burgeoning Rolling Stone, Wolman agreed to work for free, and when the first issue hit the streets five months later, rock history began to be recorded.

During his fast-paced tenure, Wolman’s lens captured the royalty of the ’60s pop and rock explosion: Janis Joplin, the Rolling Stones, Frank Zappa, the Who, Jimi Hendrix, Joan Baez, Iggy Pop, Pink Floyd, Bob Dylan, the Grateful Dead, Phil Spector, Jim Morrison, Ike & Tina Turner, Tim Leary, and a motley cast of hangers-on.

Hi Steve, I am so sorry I didn't get back to you right after getting the book!
With the craziness of the got by me.
The book is just BEAUTIFUL-- you should be very proud of it.

"...I'm a road rat."

One of the comments that we hear consistently about the book is related to the great mix of 'stadium show superstars' and folks not everyone has had a chance to see play. Today's featured artist is a Chicago favorite who has traded licks onstage with the likes of Joe Satriani and John Popper and his quote in the "Half the Project" sidebar to the right captures the feelings of many of the artists about 'their love of music".
