The ShiveArchive is the sole work of professional photographer James Shive, a lifelong professional photographer, Shive produced thousands of images of rock and roll’s most illustrious concerts taken during the mid 1970s through the mid 80s, providing a dense visual record of its formative years and most enduring live-performances. His contribution is represented by a repertoire of musical artists that includes Billy Idol; Billy Joel; Bob Dylan; Bon Jovi; Boston; Carly Simon; Cheap Trick; Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young; Dire Straits; Elton John; The Eagles; Elvis Costello; Eric Clapton; Fleetwood Mac; Foreigner; Genesis; Heart; Huey Lewis; Jefferson Starship; Jackson Browne; James Taylor; Joni Mitchell; Journey; Meatloaf; Peter Frampton; Peter Gabriel; The Grateful Dead; The Pretenders; REO Speedwagon; The Rolling Stones; Tom Petty; and The Who, among many others. Many of the images also capture legendary rock venues and theaters, such as The Bottom Line and The Palladium in New York City; the Capitol Theatre, Passaic, NJ; and The Spectrum in Philadelphia, PA – all of which no longer exist – in addition to the historic early days of Madison Square Garden, NYC.
