John Byrne Cooke


Recently we had the very good fortune of interviewing writer, actor, and doc filmmaker John Byrne Cooke, at the home of our good friends Cassidy Brown and Rami Margron. John certainly wears many hats – he did sound for D.A. Pennebaker at Monterey Pop, and served as road manager for Big Brother and the Holding Company, which he details beautifully in his book On the Road with Janis Joplin. He is responsible for a set of amazing color photos of The Committee, taken during their Satirathon in 1968. He also brings the perspective of Committee fan during their later years, in both San Francisco and Los Angeles. Check out his website to keep tabs on his many projects:
