I read that Baron Wolman died. He was Rolling Stone magazine’s first photographer. You can read his obit and see some of his iconic photographs here: https://nyti.ms/3l0ppYy
I met him briefly at a radio station event in Los Angeles in the early 90s. I had just finished reading a book about the history of Rolling Stone that he was interviewed for. I asked if the sections about those early days were accurate. He smiled and said, “Most of it.”
I thought it was really cool that his job at one time (he was doing aerial photography when I met him) was to hang with and document the lives of musicians. At the time I thought radio would be my ticket to a similar career. Radio ended up being a short-lived ride, but years later I started this business and things worked out better than I thought.
