Michael Putland, obit

Fairwell to Michael Putland. As the post quotes, he pretty much photographed Abba to Frank Zappa. He also gave me my first job in the photographic world working at Retna pictures. Always had a fascinating Rock n' Roll story to tell and gave you the time to share tips on printing in the darkroom. I named a cat after him at one point too. I should say something cheesy that there's another flashbulb being fired up in heaven, however Mike, used halogen or natural lights. Will raise a glass to the man later with a mid 70s Stone's sound track.
