Pechner, a Novato High grad, finalized a license agreement with the Rock and Roll Hall in February to donate his image of the massive Wall of Sound, a mountain of McIntosh amplifiers created by Owsley “Bear” Stanley and others. Pechner attended the pre-opening with his son, Toby, and his brother Stan and received the VIP treatment from curator Howard Kramer.
