Considered one of Greg Irons' finest pieces, the artist indulged his penchant for cartooning and had rock and roll great Chuck Berry, decked out in his wing-tips and white suit, soar over the San Francisco music scene.
The poster was printed once before the concert. It measures 12 7/8" x 21 1/8".
The 2nd printing is on coated stock and has "W 2021" in the lower right hand margin. It was printed in 2021 by Wolfgang's in a 250 copy run. This reprint measures 13" x 21".
Irons moved to San Francisco in 1967 and roamed around Haight-Ashbury with his sketchbook, creating images he would later use in his posters. As usual, promoter Bill Graham needed a poster in a hurry, and Irons succeeded in producing one overnight. As his talent as a draftsman developed, a distinctive line quality and refined sense of balance set Irons' posters apart. His cartoonist inclinations are often evident, and he became one of the seminal figures in underground comics. Irons also found work producing album graphics and book illustration, but it was the art of tattooing that became his passion.
