    Tribute To Chet Helms Signed Lithograph #95/350 (1994). Though not a household name to everyone, Chester Leo "Chet" Helms was probably one of the most important men in the history of Rock and Roll. Born in California, he was raised in Texas where he met a young Janis Joplin, whom he would later introduce to a band he was managing -- Big Brother and the Holding Company. Chet helped a young promoter named Bill Graham get his first dance hall permits. He was also the driving force behind the "Summer of Love" free concerts in Golden Gate Park. Since the 1970s, Chet had been battling hepatitis and in 1994, he needed major surgery. The SF bands stepped up, played for free, and helped Chet pay his bills. This numbered litho was also a fundraiser for that event. The line-up included Steve Miller, Big Brother, Gregg Allman, Lee Michaels, Country Joe, Ken Kesey, and too many more to mention! Signed by artist Alton Kelly, this Mint litho will look great on your wall. Overall size is 20" x 30".
