Lost & Found: Photos of Rock & Roll Legend By Michael Friedman
Michael Friedman, former Manager and Music Producer, launched his music career during America’s folk and rock & roll infancy in the 1960’s. He was also an avid photographer who had the opportunity to work with, befriend and photograph legendary musical artists including Janis Joplin, The Band, Kris Kristofferson, Todd Rundgren, the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, the Rolling Stones & many others. Through his day-to-day relationships, his photographs were able to capture the essence of that historic period in music. Friedman took thousands of photographs, on and off stage, but lost the negatives before he had a chance to print them.
In 2017, after almost 50 years, the long lost negatives were found in Friedman’s attic. They turn out to be a wonderful time capsule and a fresh new look at an important time in music history. Now fully restored, a collection of more than seventy-five images were exhibited at the California Heritage Museum in the Spring and Summer of 2018.
The collection is traveling to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame for exhibit in the fall of 2019 and will be archived in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame's permanent collection.
