Johnny Cash, 1969.

Jim Marshall, the photographer who captured some of rock & roll's most unforgettable images including photos of Jimi Hendrix burning his guitar at Monterey Pop and Johnny Cash flipping the bird at San Quentin, died on March 23, 2010 in his sleep in New York. He was 74. Marshall continued to be prolific even late into his life. Most recently, he snapped portraits of everyone from John Mayer and Ben Harper to Lenny Kravitz and Velvet Revolver. He has published five books, including 2009's Trust. Marshall, who had no children, was passionate about his work up until the end. ?I have no kids,? he said. ?My photographs are my children.?
