Jay Blakesberg Hosts Photos with Stories: Steve Schneider — First Three Songs, Rock ‘n’ Roll at 125th of a Second on Sunday, January 31
Photographer Steve Schneider has turned a fondness for rock ‘n’ roll into a lifetime of concert documentation. His catalogue includes rock legends from several decades frozen in revealing and dramatic action. Artists include Eric Clapton, Carlos Santana, Jeff Beck, Pete Townsend, Tom Petty, Merle Haggard, Kurt Cobain, Eddie Vedder, Soundgarden, Bonnie Raitt, Lucinda Williams, Emmylou Harris, Stevie Ray Vaughn, the Grateful Dead and many, many more.
Steve’s close association with the Grateful Dead goes back to the mid 1970s when the band first allowed him access. His work has appeared in various publications including TIME, which, after Jerry Garcia’s death in 1995, ran Steve’s shot of Garcia at his last Seattle concert. Come take a journey through this visual time capsule made possible by your host, Jay Blakesberg!
