“A WORK OF ART! Gigantic, beautiful, hard cover, coffee table book, mind blowing photos! It’s like 400 pages of incredible photos and text!”
The tome is chock full of incredible (mostly color) photos that show our beloved artists in various lights. We did not have the web back then, all we saw were album covers, mag photos and concerts. This book adds a lot of flavor to the artists I adored, and still do. Weiss has to be the luckiest fan that ever walked the earth for him to be in a position to take these photos. And he got paid to do it!!!!
I am very grateful for this book, and immediately bought another to send to my brother. Very impressive in scale and story lines also. Brings back tons of fond memories and reminiscing on that time and scene. I truly feel sorry for anyone who missed the 80s! Music and concerts have never been the same since then.
I had found out that this book was bring released through Ozzy’s instagram and as a huge fan of him and Black Sabbath, finding rare photos of the group is hard to come by. I totally forgot that I had preordered it and it arrived today. As an music photographer myself, I love capturing moments of artists on stage and candidly.
This book provides insight into musicians I’ve admired growing up but was not old enough to experience in life. Mark Weiss’ photos have always been iconic in heavy metal and rock n roll and this collection of pieces from the biggest artists in the 80s is worth the purchase.
“I’ve looked and read your new book at least 30 times and I keep seeing something new. This is THE rock ‘n roll book! It has more than I could ever hope for in a book. So many memory’s of our youth! F*$#n beautiful!”– Steven Adler (Guns N’ Roses)
“Mark is the real deal. He may notplay the guitar, but that camera is his guitar. He’s a rockstar.”– Gene Simmons
