In its almost sixty-year history rock music has come up with its own titled hierarchy in its constellation of stars and superstars. Elvis became the King, Michael Jackson, The King of Pop. Jim Morrison, The Lizard King, James Brown, The Godfather of Soul, (interestingly these are all self-appointed titles), and photographer Jim Marshall, who passed away in March 2010 (see Doors Examiner obituary) was known as the Godfather of rock photography.
