Rock & roll belongs on the Sunset Strip like a groupie belongs backstage, so what better place to find some of music's most iconic photographs than at the Sunset Marquis? Housed inside the tony hotel, and opened in 2013, the Morrison Hotel Gallery exhibits works by Jim Marshall, Bob Gruen, Mick Rock, Henry Diltz and other well-known photographers — some you've been staring at since you were a kid, from the cover of The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band to the cover of The Who's Who's Next. And they hang not just in the gallery but in the hotel's lobby, restaurants and pool area. With another location in New York, the gallery was co-founded by former record executive Peter Blachley, music industry professional Richard Horowitz and Diltz, the official photographer for the Monterey Pop and Woodstock festivals and the man behind other notable album covers, including The Doors' Morrison Hotel and Crosby, Stills & Nash's self-titled debut record. —Siran Babayan
