Morrison Hotel Gallery is proud to present the photography of Herb Greene. Herb Greene photographed the rock musicians and other members of San Francisco's cultural milieu during the height of its creative productivity. Greene, a friend of many of San Francisco's most influential musicians, worked as few photographers have: not as a documenter from the outside, but as a participant within the music scene he was photographing. Many of his photographs have become signature portraits of these musicians. His revealing portraits of The Jefferson Airplane, Jeff Beck, The Pointer Sisters, The Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, Led Zeppelin, Carlos Santana, Rod Stewart and many others helped create astonishing family album for an entire generation.

I wish I could give this 10 stars because that is how rich this footage and narrative happens to be. This person Herbbie appeared to have been at the perfect place with just the correct skill set to capture a piece of Americana history. How wonderful it is to listen to stories from this unique period in American history. Please give us more !!!
Good stuff. Amazing photos. Scintillating music. Great insight into the 'summer of love.' Well worth the fifteen minute watch.
