Get an Early Look at the Photography of Rolling Stone in Longview
Rolling Stone magazine was the go to publication to find the latest news about our favorite rock stars. The magazine gave a "backstage pass" of sorts, too, into the lives of those stars.
Photography has been a huge part of Rolling Stone, too. Especially those awesome covers.
One of the early visionaries of those covers was Baron Wolman. Wolman joined the then brand new Rolling Stone in 1967. In his three years, he gave us photos of Janis Joplin, The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan and many, many more.
Right now in Longview at the Longview Museum of Fine Arts, you can get a look at those early cover photos from Baron Wolman and the process it took to decide which photo made the cut according to KLTV.
In Rolling Stone's early days, it was nothing more than a periodical, like a newspaper, not the high gloss magazine we came to know. You'll see some of those original periodicals, along with the original photos, on display.
Backstage Pass: Baron Wolman and the Early Years of the Rolling Stone will be on display, Tuesday through Saturday, until May 25. It's $5 to get in or free if you are a museum member.
