Newly Discovered Rock Photos from 1969-1973 Go on View at Rock Hall

Wed 10/23 @ 6:15PM

Don’t feel bad if you never heard of the famous rock photographer Michael Friedman. No one has. He’s not actually famous. Even he pretty much forgot that between 1969 and 1973, the former manager/producer photographed some of the most notable musicians of that era. He put down his Pentax and went on with his life.

Then, a few years ago, his old negatives were discovered in the attic of their home by his wife as they were getting ready to sell it. Those never-before-seen candid black & white shots of musicians such as Janis Joplin, the Rolling Stones The Band and Todd Rundgren form the basis of the new show Exposed! Music Legends 1969-1973: The Once-Lost Photography of Michael Friedman in the Rock Hall’s Main Exhibit Hall.

Friedman will be at the Rock Hall to unveil the collection at 6:15, and sit down in the Foster Theatre at 7pm to talk about his career and how the photos came about, and answer questions.

It’s free with RSVP.
