Randy Tuten was hired by Bill Graham in January, 1969 and immediately started to work his transportation themes into concert posters. BG154 featured a train station, a bus stop and an ocean liner. "There really isn't any heavy meaning in my posters," said Tuten. They were "... a combination of what I like and what fit."

About Randy Tuten

Randy Tuten is the only poster artist whose work spans five decades of design for The Fillmore. The 23 year-old San Francisco native was hired by Bill Graham in January, 1969, and their mutual taste for traditional, readable design style led to a long-lasting work relationship. Although influenced by the compositions of "Fillmore Five" artists Mouse, Kelley and Griffin, Tuten avoided "... Heavy meaning in my posters." Tuten's style reflected his skill as a draftsman, and his designs evolved into an eclectic mix of graphic imagery, lettering and photographs.
