"That photo of Miles and his red Ferrari was taken on New York's West Side Highway in 1969. We had just shot some portraits in his apartment near Central Park. He said he wanted to go to Gleason's Gym to work out. He was an amateur boxer, as you probably know. Anyhow, we're driving along and I said, 'Miles, pull over. Let's do some shots of you and this totally cool car.' He said 'yes,' we did, and then proceeded to the gym where he threatened to knock me out…" -Baron Wolman

About Baron Wolman

Settling in Haight-Ashbury in the 60's, Wolman was surrounded by Janis and the Grateful Dead in close-by digs. Wolman was soon accompanying journalist Jann Wenner to the now famous and genre-defining Mills College conference on rock music. Wenner happened to be the founder of Rolling Stone magazine. He liked Wolman's style, offered him a job and Wolman launched as the first official document-er of the new psychedelic age. Beginning with the magazine's opening issue, Wolman's photographs were windows on the parade of the different, the delightful and the doomed, and his pictures became the gold standard by which rock photography would be measured.
