This photograph, taken backstage at the Forum in 1972, is one of the images in a small, absorbing new exhibition of Jim Marshall's photographs of the Stones at EMP, organized by Michelle Dunn Marsh. (There's a book, too, by Chronicle, with a foreword by Richards.)
Marshall, who died in 2010 (and is not to be confused with the recently departed creator of the Marshall stack), shot pretty much everybody, capturing iconic image after iconic image—including, yup, Johnny Cash giving the bird. Yet his images are as often warm and close, intimate, and surprising. It can't be possible that Mick really looked like this, can it?
