i never thought about love when i thought about home

We always see with memory. — David Hockney

Jim Marshall, one of the premier rock and roll photographers in the world, passed away today at the age of 74. Marshall shot everyone from Hendrix to the jazz greats to the ’70s San Francisco scene, to the moment he was the only photographer backstage at the Beatles’ final show in 1966. He was amazing, and it is a tremendous loss. (NYTimes has a slideshow of some of Marshall’s most iconic images here.)

2010, stop killing my heroes.
