Times They Are-A Changin!
Rock photographer Barry Feinstein, who shot several of the last century's most famous album covers, died today in upstate New York of natural causes, according to Rolling Stone. He was 80 years old.
Feinstein snapped some of rock 'n' roll's most iconic images, including the covers for Bob Dylan's 'The Times They Are-A Changin,' George Harrison's 'All Things Must Pass,' Janis Joplin's 'Pearl' and the Rolling Stones' 'Beggar's Banquet,' before it was switched to its minimal, off-white cover. The original image featured a graffiti covered bathroom stall but ABKCO objected to the photo on the grounds that it was too obscene.
