You are probably very familiar with the photo on the right, as it was used in the cover one of Bruce Springsteen’s best albums: The Wild, The Innocent & The E Street Shuffle. The author, photographer David Gahr, passed away on Monday. He was 85. Gahr took also the famous picture of The E Street Band that appears on the backcover of the album, taken in 1973.
Gahr was a prestigious photographer, who shot and worked with all the big names in music, from John Lennon to Janis Joplin, including Pete Seeger, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Willie Nelson, Charles Mingus or Miles Davis, and his work was featured in many album and magazine covers.
