“Once Jim was in, he was another Stone. He caught us with our trousers down and got the ups and downs. I love his work, which must have been frustrating to do at times, but that is what happens on gigs like this. Wonderful work, and a great guy. He had a way with the shutter and an amazing way with the eye!” –Keith Richards on Jim Marshall

In early 1972, the Rolling Stones were putting finishing touches onExile on Main Street, one of their greatest albums, at Sunset Sound recording studio in Los Angeles. Following its release, the album reached No. 1 worldwide and the band embarked on a raucous, star-studded and drug-fueled tour of the United States and Canada that included performances at the Hollywood Palladium and the Forum in Inglewood, as well as bygone venues in Long Beach and San Diego.

The Stones’ trips to Los Angeles had one thing in common: photographer Jim Marshall was there to document them. Marshall photographed Keith Richards and Mick Jagger working at Sunset Sound (at their request), and later, on assignment forLifemagazine, joined the California leg of the ‘72 tour, where he shot intimate backstage scenes and dynamic performance stills. His masterful eye and unlimited access allowed Marshall to capture the Stones’ wild rock’n’roll energy at their best.
