December 15, 2007

This incredible book makes the perfect Christmas gift for any & all the VH fans in your life. They will LOVE IT!

From 1978 to 1984, legendary rock photographer Neil Zlozower was the “fifth member of Van Halen,” touring, partying with, and capturing images of the band during the David Lee Roth era, a time when the band was at the height of its powers. His photos capture the all-out, spandexed, high-kicking, high energy, blazing glory and backstage antics of the band as they became legends, and helped solidify their image as the ultimate rock and roll party band.

At long last, Zlozower has compiled the definitive Van Halen HARDCOVER COFFEE TABLE PHOTO BOOK. The 232 page treasure is jam packed with hundreds of classic and never before published photos.

This visual history collects live, session, candid and backstage photos from Zlozower’s behind-the-scenes perspective, along with testimony from the rock pantheon paying homage to the band, including members of Led Zeppelin, Guns N’ Roses, Alice Cooper, Def Leppard, Kiss, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Alice Cooper, Motley Crue, along with band insiders such as original manager Marshall Berle, producer Ted Templeman, Pete Angelus, Eddie Anderson, Dean Kramer, and many more. And the Forward has been penned by non-other than David Lee Roth!

As part of Van Halen’s entourage,”Zloz”, toured America with Van Halen, becoming their primary photographer. He was their friend who had the intimate access to the band that no one else had. Whether on the stage of a football stadium, poolside at a Holiday Inn or at Dave’s dad’s house, Neil and his camera were there and in everyone’s face. He is also one of rock’s most notorious and prolific photographers. His work has appeared in countless magazines and album covers. When you consider that Neil’s prints sell for several hundred dollars each, it’s pretty amazing that you can now own approximately 260 pictures from his prized collection for the very reasonable price of $34.95! This too-good-to-be-true item is a MUST HAVE!
