SAN FRANCISCO (AP).- Music photographer Jim Marshall, who spent more than a half-century capturing rock-and-roll royalty ranging from the Beatles to Ben Harper at work and in repose, has died. He was 74.
Aaron Zych, a manager at the Morrison Hotel Galleries in New York City, said Wednesday that Marshall apparently died alone in a New York City hotel room.
Zych says the San Francisco resident was scheduled to appear at another gallery Wednesday night to promote his new book with celebrity photographer Timothy White.
According to his professional Web site, Marshall had more than 500 record album covers to his credit.
The San Francisco resident was best-known for his iconic images from the 1967 Monterey Pop Festival and Woodstock in 1969. His more recent subjects included John Mayer and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
