        Hail,HAIL...JIM MARSHALL!!

This Bad Boy Rock & Roll photographer from the 60's and 70's is a great
documentary photographer (and the bane of art directors everywhere).

His book is march through rock & roll history and has all the images that
have become icons of the era.

...and Jim swears by his MANY Leicas.

In an article in the old American Photographer the is a great picture of him
at one of those 60's multi day concerts, looking filthy and carrying 6 Leicas.

He looks VERY happy!
