->> Yes very sad news. He was a friend of mine. Quite talented, crazy and loyal. He was 74 yrs old. Today is a very sad day.

Those days are long gone when he was able to hang out with the who is who of rock & roll.
It was as easy as "Hey Marshall this is Jim Morrison we are having a bbq tomorrow. Just the boys in the band and Jerry Garcia is coming too. Hendrix may show up too but you never know with Jimi."
One thing Jim Marshall was great at it, he kept all his © and knew the value of licensing his valuable images. A few of them hang out at my house.
Marshall we will miss your craziness.

->> This is a very sad day. Jim was a legend and friend (thanks to an introduction from the Z-Man) who taught me many things about business the past few years. A true inspiration who lived life on his own terms.

Grover and I visited Jim's house last year:

->> I spoke with him recently but this came out of no where :(

One weekend I was staying with him at his place in SF. IT was almost 10 yrs ago. Here is a photo I took. He love guns and he wasnt supposed to had any. But Marshall was Marshall.

He placed the damn gun on his mouth and scared the shit out of me. I told him to placed the gun on the bed or there were no pix. He was a loyal, giving and crazy as nobody I had known :)
Marshall I REALLY MISS YOU :( HE told me once "Pag when I died you dont need to cry for me" I told him not to worry about it that I was too busy for that. Marshall.. oh Marshall.. I lied.

->> very sad day in the world of music photographer. Jim's work was incredible. He made my day (possibly even my life!) when he told me he liked my work and told me I shot some performers he wished he shot-specifically some of the women he found to be attractive (not his exact words :)
RIP Jim, and thank you.

->> I started out as a rock n roll and surfing photographer in Hawaii, Jim was one of my idols. I later became friends with him. We would bump into each other at times at the Leica booth at some expo where he would be holding court and giving the reps a bad but funny time standing there with is totally worn out, but very usable classic Leica body and 35mm lens. I hope someone places that camera in a museum somewhere.

I am really saddened by this sudden unexpected loss.

As those who knew him know, he was quite the character and will be missed.

->> I cant even remember when I
first met Jim Marshall it was
either late 80’s or early 90’s. I went on a trip with my old
photographer buddy Chester Simpson. We flew from Washington DC and
landed in LA. From there we went to the Santa Monica’s home of Jeff
Good,
one of his old SF… art school friends. Jeff
had an amazing personality and warm puppy eyes that could bullshit his
way around any place he wanted. He also drove and treated his ‘64red
topless Ford Mustang like it was his girlfriend. The very
next morning we took off for San Francisco on the red convertible..

->> Man, oh man. This is a tough one for sure. I certainly cannot echo the stories above of knowing Jim, but I certainly feel the loss in the photographic community. His work has inspired me for many many years. I've always been influenced by his work. I did meet him briefly one time quite a whle back. It was very brief and I ended up a bit tounge tied about what to even ask him. I guess I found myself a bit star-struck, even while growing up in Southern California where "stars" are just part of the landscape and no big deal most of the time. Conversation was a bit awkward, but like I said it was short. Luckily I supposed then, but now I clearly see it as a missed opportunity.

As a teenager in the 70's his work was so inspiring to me. I think one of my first real concerts I shot was in 1978 (9?) at Boise State. It was April wine, and I was sure I was going to be the next big concert shooter. Crappy shots on my Pentax K1000, but I was sure proud then. Anyway, life goes in so many directions and I can't say I ever reached those goals.

Interesting thing I suppose is that people like Marshall set the bar so high that they simply stand alone clearly and proudly. Thank you Mr. Marshall for the images and the inspiration that lives on today.
