Never Before Seen Photos of Rock Stars. As a manager, producer, and friend of top musicians in the 1960s and 1970s, Michael Friedman @michael.friedman.photography had access for some great photos. He recently found unprinted negatives from that period and the photos are on display at the California Heritage Museum in Santa Monica for a few months before becoming a permanent exhibit at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame @rockhall .
Here are 3 of the photos, each followed by a full description from the exhibit.
1. A 26 year old Mick Jagger @mickjagger when @therollingstones played Madison Square Garden in 1969.
2. A stage shot from that legendary concert showing fans rushing the stage.
3. Janis Joplin @janisjoplin performing at a party for the Hell's Angels @hellsangels_mc in 1969.
Please excuse the faint reflections in the pics of other photos on the exhibit walls.
I enjoyed talking with Michael at the Museum, especially hearing a funny anecdote about Jim Morrison.

On This Day 🎸 April 22, 1969, the Beatles recorded 'The Ballad of John and Yoko.' Well, technically-- George was on holiday and Ringo was shooting the film, 'The Magic Christian, ' so it was just Paul and John. Which makes it doubly awkward when they recorded this exchange:
Lennon (on guitar): "Go a bit faster, Ringo!"
McCartney (on drums): "OK, George!"
The song, chronicling events associated with Lennon’s marriage to Yoko Ono, was the Beatles’ 17th and final #1 single.
