American photographer, often of rock stars.
He had extended access to numerous musicians through the 1960s and 1970s, including being the only photographer allowed backstage at The Beatles last concert, and chief photographer at Woodstock. He famously photographed Jimi Hendrix setting his guitar on fire at the Monterey Pop Festival, and Johnny Cash at San Quentin.
He was known for his forceful personality that became something of a celebrity of its own.
In 1967, he dated Folgers coffee heiress, Abigail Folger. She accompanied him and fellow photographer, Elaine Mayes to the Monterey Pop Festival. Abigail was murdered in 1969 by followers of Charles Manson.
He lived in California, but died on March 24, 2010 in New York City while on a trip in which he was scheduled to speak in SoHo.
