Davisville, 5/9/16: First he was an Aggie. Then he photographed the Beatles

Ethan Russell was a student at UC Davis in the 1960s. Then he left for England, where he met Mick Jagger, John Lennon, and began photographing many of the biggest rock stars of the era. On May 20 he’ll speak at the Harris Center in Folsom, where he’ll present and talk about his photos and the stories behind them. We get a preview today on Davisville, including how he got this photo that became the cover of the classic Who’s Next—you’re looking at the CD version, with the campus in the background—as well as his memories of Davis.
