Another big loss for the rock world as legendary photographer Jim Marshall has died at 74. He captured some of rock’s most iconic images. That photo of Jim Hendrix torching his guitar at the Monterey Pop Festival? Him. That t-shirt you still see people wearing with Johnny Cash flippin’ the bird? His image, too.

I once has the privilege of interviewing the guy – and cantankerous counterpart Baron Wolman – back when I was a cub reporter at the University of Kentucky’s Kernel newspaper. Rolling Stone has an obit and a cross section of his work posted here.
