1967: A look back at rock photography pioneer

Men of the People who say Keep Hope Alive
The Seattle Times, October 10, 2009


The top of the front page of The Seattle Times on October 10, 2009 featured photos of two renowned men.

In one small color photo was the President of the United States who had just been announced the winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, Barack Obama. The other large black and white photo was of a fringe clad 1960's folkie-rocker, Neil Young.

The leader of the free world and the rocker in the free world.

Such a contrast. But are their improbable stories really such a contrast?

The front page Seattle Times photo was part of a feature story on local photographer Jini Dellaccio. Back in the 1960's, Dellaccio captured photos of many rock musicians traveling in the Seattle area and has trunks of memories to share.

Dellaccio asked Young to get up on his roof in his fringed leather jacket and "fly like a bird." She didn't print the shot at the time because she thought it made his face look old, "and he was so beautiful."

The article is a great read and has many other photos of the local rock scene.

Did anyone see the Neil Young impression Jimmy Fallon did on Late Night recently? Man! He was just foolin' but still sounded so much more like Neil than some of those cover bands. Check it out here:

Ouch, fishman, you just beat me to it: http://www.latenightwithjimmyfallon.com/blogs/2009/11/neil-young-sings-the-fresh-prince-theme-song/

I was coy about it at first, but it did make me chuckle.
