Rolling Stone and A2 Jazz & Blues Fest photographer Baron Wolman dies
Baron Wolman, who became Rolling Stone's first staff photographer in 1967 and captured nearly every major rocker in the Woodstock generation (and at the Woodstock fest), died on November 9 from ALS. He was 83.
But Wolman's connection to our area came from his photographing the inaugural Ann Arbor Jazz and Blues Festival in 1969. Wolman and Getty Images photographers Tom Copi and Dick Waterman are responsible for the most iconic shots from the event.
