The Jefferson Airplane
The Airplane was my intro to the Fillmore
professionally. I had been hanging out there at least
since March '68. I showed my May '68 shots to the
manager, a wonderful man named Kip Cohen, who combined a
mellow personality with the ability to get things done
and people to listen to him. He said if he'd have had
them before the performance, he would have paid for
their use in the outside display cases. Since I was
hanging out heavily, when the Airplane was booked to
return in July, I got the first paid photo display by the
Fillmore. They HAD to be good. Does anyone remember Bill
Graham's favorite word...... "Shit!" ? One day
he was in a unusually bad mood because a couple of us
were hanging out in the business office between shows.
He looked around the room, taking in the desk, the piles
of paper on it, the stuff on the walls and everyone in the
office and demanded: "What is all this shit?"
including everything and everyone. I got paid $ 100 for
the use of 5 photos, 2 in color. Just to keep your
interest, or maybe just to maintain mine, the enclosed
photo was NOT one of the five.
