them when they were "The Warlocks". He photographed them when they were the
"Grateful Dead". His works appear on the albums "In the Dark" and "Dylan and
the Dead". He immortalized Jerry on Broadway. And finally he photographed the
band when they called themselves "The Dead" in 2003-2004. Herbie is considered
one of the most prolific photographers who lived the Bay Area music scene ....
Weekend Herbie and Walnut Street Gallery hosted a photography exhibit at the
Furthur Fest in California, chronicling the Grateful Dead's visual history and here are the photographs of that event.
We arrived at the site the day before the festival started – when they told
us it would be located at a fairground outside of San Francisco they forgot to tell us it was
out in the middle of no where! But as we spent time there we started to
appreciate how beautiful that part of California
is. I guess the miners had it right!
Our exhibit was not in the vending village - they had us in the event hall
that they (Furthur Fest Promoters) had set up to showcase memorabilia from the
Dead's archive and Phil's personal collection.
For three days we had a great time meeting many new people and selling
Herbie's photography. We actually saw
some people from last year's event at Rothbury and there were some Fort Collins
Dead Heads at the event too.
We were able to transform the exhibit hall into a pretty cool space. The
Furthur Promoter had this vision and the crew really followed thru ....
By the way did we tell you the story about the frogs? Angels Camp is famous
for its frogs and Mark Twain ..... There were frogs everywhere.
Furthur Fest 2010 was filled with great music, interesting people and great art.
