Legendary Pitcher Takes Rock Pics?

Randy Johnson couldn’t be satisfied with just being one of the best all-time pitchers in baseball, he also had to try his hand at live rock show photography…and do it pretty well, too. A sampling of his photos of  Soundgarden at Lollapalooza appears in this month’s issue of Spin.

It all started in the 1990s when Johnson played for the Seattle Mariners and started hanging out with lead guitarist Kim Thayil in the way famous people are lucky enough to do. Gallivanting in bars and pool halls led to a lasting friendship, and Johnson ended up getting a primo spot in the photo pit and backstage for some exclusive pics. On the band’s reaction: “I think it was maybe something more than what they expected, which is a compliment to me.”
