  • Rolling Stones, SF Civic Auditorium, 1965

From the San Francisco Chronicle (Datebook)
By Sam Whiting

It is impossible to predict when the Rolling Stones will play the Bay Area for the last time. But what is known for sure is when the band played here the first time. It was May 14, 1965, and the omnipresent photographer Jim Marshall was there with his Leica, standing at the back of the stage — where he liked to be — as the band played the San Francisco Civic Auditorium.

That image, never published before, is in “Jim Marshall: Show Me the Picture,” (Chronicle, $55) a coffee-table book with nearly 400 images. The book is set to be released Tuesday, Aug. 20, just two days after the Stones are expected to bring their No Filter tour to Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara.
