Following a successful Kickstarter campaign veteran Bay Area concert photographer Bob Minkin has released a new book. The hardcover coffee table book The Music Never Stopped: Epic Live Music Photos By Bob Minkin showcases over 25 years of Marin County music photography and stories.
More than 500 never-before-seen images from Minkin’s archives ranging from the 1980s to the present are featured across the book’s 208 pages. The Music Never Stopped includes photos shot at the original Sweetwater, Bob Weir’s TRI Studios, Phil Lesh’s Terrapin Crossroads, Sweetwater Music Hall and several other local venues. Musicians such as the Grateful Dead’s Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir and Phil Lesh can be seen performing live, backstage, at home and in other off-stage settings. Lesh and his band mate Bill Kreutzmann as well as Pete Sears, Jorma Kaukonen, Steve Kimock and others contributed essays for the book.
“This book is important,” said Lesh, “as it chronicles the Marin live music scene of the present and recent past.”
Minkin is offering The Music Never Stopped in both standard and limited deluxe editions. Follow this link to purchase.
