The Forum with Michael Goldberg: Jukebox (In-Person and Online)

August 11 @ 9:30 am - 10:30 am

In this special summer Forum, meet Addicted To Noise founder and former Rolling Stone senior writer Michael Goldberg and get a firsthand account of the first-ever collection of his photographs in the new book JUKEBOX: 1967-2023 Photographs.

Along with some of rock’s biggest stars (Bob Dylan, the Rolling Stones, the Who, Neil Young), the collection features an impressive array of underground figures and outcast luminaries captured in their natural habitat, most seen here for the first time anywhere. Bridging the gaps between the late ‘60s psychedelic era, primitive first-wave ‘70s punk, and soul & reggae, as well as never-before seen images of country and folk iconoclasts and rule-breakers across the spectrum, and even including some modern artists still making waves, JUKEBOX is a riveting photography collection that truly feels as good as it looks.

“A visual encyclopedic history of rock & roll and pop culture as it really was. Michael Goldberg was there and documented it as it happened. A behind the scenes and real look at icons through the ages.” – Laurie Kratochvil, award winning Director of Photography at Rolling Stone (1982-1994) and editor of more than a dozen photo books including 20 Years of Rolling Stone What A Long, Strange Trip It’s Been

Goldberg is best known as a writer, but for over 50 years he’s also been photographing musicians and the photos in JUKEBOX are drawn from the thousands he’s taken over the years. The book’s Foreword is written by acclaimed music book author Joel Selvin: “Come for the big names – Stones, Dead, Van, The Band; stay for the beautiful faces from the distant past – Tim Buckley, Professor Longhair, Sal Valentino. An extraordinary portfolio from any shooter, let alone one we know primarily as a writer.”

Michael Goldberg writes: “This is a book of musicians I’ve dug over the years, musicians whose recordings moved me (and still move me), musicians I was lucky enough to photograph. I think these particular photos are my best, and I hope you find them unique, and at times mysterious; there are many excellent photographers of musicians, but none of them took these photographs.”

Join Dean Malcolm Clemens Young for a conversation with Michael about his experience with the musicians, the challenges of photographing musicians, and his pioneering career in writing about music.

Photos from JUKEBOX will be on display from July 25 through September 22, 2024 at the Haight Street Art Center in San Francisco, where the exhibition, We Are the One: San Francisco Punk 1970s & 1980s, curated by Goldberg, will also be featured during those two months. An opening party celebrating both shows will take place on August 2.

JUKEBOX will be available for sale at The Forum.

The Forum will be posted on our Youtubeand Apple Podcast channels.
