Decades of Jamming



Many are familiar with Marin’s musical legacy starting with the Magic Mountain era and leading into the 1970s, but beyond that things get a bit muddled. Or do they? Photographer Bob Minkin disputes this claim with his new hardcover coffee-table book, The Music Never Stopped – Marin County’s Music Scene. Here, 208 pages are loaded with over 500 never-before-seen images of the county’s most notable players, including Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir and Phil Lesh, from the 1980s to present day. “It came together because we have such a vibrant music scene here in Marin going back decades,” Minkin says of his inspiration for the book. “In the last five years there’s been a musical renaissance with the reopening of Sweetwater Music Hall and Phil Lesh’s Terrapin Crossroads.” Minkin, who’s been actively covering music in Marin since the ’80s, wanted to make a record, “a yearbook” to honor the musicians, the music and the fans. Join Minkin for an October 1 book signing at Sweetwater Music Hall.
