Glen Craig

Glen became chief photographer for Hullaballoo magazine 1965. Then in 1969, a chance encounter with B.B. King propelled a young Glen Craig into the world of music photography. Craig’s image of the blues guitarist became a front cover of Cashbox magazine. 

During his next few years with the magazine, Glen photographed many musicians who went on to become music legends. These include celebrated artists Aretha Franklin, James Brown, B.B. King, Gene Vincent, Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard, Chuck Berry, Wayne Cochran, and Johnny Cash, as well as rock and roll icons The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, The Beach Boys, Loving Spoonful, The Doors, and countless others.

Craig’s work caught the attention of Sid Bernstein, the man who first brought The Beatles to America. Glen worked closely with Sid as creative director and press officer. Glen also collaborated with B.B. King on TV commercials in the 1970s. 

While photographing B.B. King in the late 60s, Columbia / CBS introduced Glen to Miles Davis in New York City. The record company wanted to cross Davis into a more mainstream music audience, and Glen and Miles developed a trusting relationship that allowed the photographer to photograph Davis at home, at the gym, and in the studio. Glen went on to photograph Miles in 1970 for Zygote magazine, which ran an 18-page feature on the musician, including many of the photos shown here, of three weeks Craig spent with Miles Davis, leading up to and including his performances in June 1970 at the Fillmore East.

Glen Craig credits as his mentors the photographers Diane Arbus, Gordon Parks, and Benedict J. Fernandez, whom Glen studied under at Parsons School of Design in New York City.
