Book Queen: The Neal Preston Photographs Description/Summary:
One of the most prolific and highly regarded rock photographers of all time, Neal Preston began working with Queen in the mid 1970s as their official tour photographer. His incredible work during this first tour forged a relationship with the band that has lasted 50 years. Featuring over 300 images and produced in collaboration with the band, this book is an exhilarating ride through their years on the road together, the pages vibrating with a palpable energy.
'Shooting live music performances is something few photographers do really well. I just happened to discover one day that I was pretty good at it.' Neal Preston is one of the greatest rock photographers of all time. Exhilarated and Exhausted is a no-holds-barred complete retrospective of his more than 40-year career. Produced in collaboration with Neal, it is introduced by a foreword by Neal's close friend, the renowned writer and director Cameron Crowe, and an introduction by photo editor Dave Brolan. Neal's photographs vibrate with a palpable and inimitable intensity. As Crowe observes, 'You can feel the music, the audience, the desperate need to find a place in the world, all of it, in these photos because they were curated by the guy who felt it all when he pressed the button on the camera. They're snapshots of what's most elusive - truth and fun and for that one moment, on that one night, the thrill of belonging.' This exceptional volume is a who's who of rock royalty. Neal was
In Brian May's own words and more than 300 previously unseen 3-D photographs, Queen in 3-D is an insider's look at life with the rock ban Queen, told for the first time. The pictures and self=penned text tell the story of Brian's discovery of the world of stereoscopy as a boy, and chronicles Queen from the early 1970s to the present day.
The more legendary the rock band, the harder it is to cut through the myth. And the more debauched and unpredictable their behaviour, the harder it is for a photographer to gain their confidence while still remaining capable of operating a camera.Given these conditions, Neal Preston had to be a worker of subtle magic in order to get up close and remain on good terms with Led Zeppelin during the height of their '70s reign as heavy blues' Lords Of Misrule. Preston has worked for 25 years perfecting his abilities as a portraitist and "rare glimpse" hunter, acquiring memorable, candid images of Madonna, Springsteen, The Eagles and Bono.His collection of Led Zeppelin insider shots are some of the most revealing and entertaining ever seen, showing Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, John Bonham and John Paul Jones rocking out, crashing out, dreaming away, hunkering down and fooling about in their underwear. Preston was right there, on the private jets, at the recording sessions and at the aftershows, and his record of the band at their pagan, Hammer Of The Gods peak reverberates loudly enough to reach both serious Zeppelin fans and the casually curious.

Imagine being alongside one of the greatest bands in the history of rock, touring the world and being there as they perform at some of the best and biggest music venues in the world. Peter Hince didn't have to imagine: for more than a decade, he lived a life that other people can only dream of as he worked with Queen as head of their road crew. In 1973, Queen was the support act for Mott the Hoople, for whom Peter was a roadie. Back then, Queen had to content themselves with being second on the bill and the world had not yet woken up to the flamboyant talent of Freddie Mercury. Peter started working full time for Queen just as they were making A Night at the Opera, the album which catapulted them to international stardom. In this intimate and affectionate book, Peter recalls the highlights of his years with the band.

David Godlis captures the grit and grandeur of 1970s-'80s New York City in his street photography When he is on the street armed with his camera, photographer David Godlis (born 1951) describes himself as "a gunslinger and a guitar picker all in one." Ever since he bought his first 35mm camera in 1970, Godlis has made it his mission to capture the world on film just as it appears to him in reality. Godlis is most famous for his images of the city's punk scene and serving as the unofficial official photographer for the Film Society of Lincoln Center. For 40 years, his practice has also consisted of walking around the streets of New York City and shooting whatever catches his eye: midnight diner patrons, stoop loiterers, commuters en route to the nearest subway station. With an acute sense of both humor and pathos, Godlis frames everyday events in a truly arresting manner. This publication presents Godlis' best street photography from the 1970s and '80s in a succinct celebration of New York's past. The book is introduced by an essay written by cultural critic Luc Sante and closes with an afterword written by Blondie cofounder and guitarist Chris Stein.

Book Rockin' the City of Angels Description/Summary:
Massive music festivals--Monterey, Woodstock, Altamont--ushered rock 'n' roll into the 1970s, the decade that would feature some of the greatest musical performances of all time. Rock bands were writing increasingly expansive concept albums with sweeping themes, and as venues expanded in tandem with their creative ambitions, they were inspired to create elaborate stage shows as vehicles for their music. Their records promised "theater of the mind," and concerts brought these dreams to life.Rock concerts became mega-entertainment experiences, with artists using every available piece of stagecraft -- lights, projections, backdrops, props, and costumes. Musicians created flamboyant personas, delivering high-octane performances characterized by musical virtuosity in over-the-top theatrical spectacles, or just plain rebellious grit. I bore witness to these fantastic concerts in and around Los Angeles, California... the "city of angels." This book celebrates more than three-dozen of these incredible tours including key performances by bands such as Led Zeppelin, Queen, David Bowie, Fleetwood Mac, Genesis, Heart, Jethro Tull, Pink Floyd, The Who and Yes. We'll share memories of those legendary concerts and reviews of the best video documents of the era, each band illuminated by a hand-picked collection of brilliant images by the best photojournalists of that time including Richard E. Aaron, Jorgen Angel, Fin Costello, Armando Gallo, Neal Preston, Jim Summaria, Lisa Tanner and Neil Zlowzower along with many others. This is their story, and ours....
