Bob Dylan Documentarian Murray Lerner Dead at 90
Famed music documentarian Murray Lerner, who captured Bob Dylan going electric and Jimi Hendrix's legendary Isle of Wight performance, died Saturday from kidney failure, Variety reports. He was 90.

Lerner's son, Noah, said the filmmaker died at his home in Long Island City, New York after falling ill about three months ago. "He was a complete filmmaker," Noah Lerner said. "A cinematographer first and foremost, but someone who also wrote, edited, produced and directed."
