OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE

Rock & Roll Hall of Fame
Between 1969 and 1973, with a Pentax camera and Tri-X film, former manager and music producer Michael Friedman photographed some of the most notable musicians of the time, on and off stage. For more than 40 years, nearly 1,000 of his never-developed negatives went missing and were presumed lost, but this time capsule of music history was recently discovered by Friedman’s wife in the attic of their home as they prepared to sell it. On Wednesday, October 23rd, Friedman joins the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame as we unveil a special collection of these never-before-seen photos in Exposed! Music Legends 1969-1973: The Once-Lost Photography of Michael Friedman.
Friedman’s collection, featuring candid black and white shots of iconic musicians and performers including The Rolling Stones, Janis Joplin, The Band, Todd Rundgren and more, will be on display in the Rock Hall’s Main Exhibit Hall.
Following the exhibit opening, Michael will sit down with Rock Hall curator in the Foster Theater to discuss his fascinating career and story.
This event is free with RSVP. The reception begins inside the Main Exhibit Hall at 6:15pm, with the Q&A taking place at 7:00pm in the Foster Theater.
