Описание: Featuring the iconic and never-before-published photography of Mark Weiss, The Decade That Rocked covers the biggest names from the '80s hard rock scene--including Jon Bon Jovi, Ozzy Osbourne, M tley Cr e, Van Halen, and more--in an illustrated homage to the music and mayhem of rock's most colorful decade. The 1980s were an era of musical excess, filled with spandex, makeup, big hair, groupies, and loud, guitar-driven rock 'n' roll. Photographer Mark Weiss lived at the heart of it all, documenting the biggest and most dangerous bands of the time--legends ranging from Van Halen, Ozzy Osbourne, Aerosmith, and M tley Cr e to Metallica, Guns N' Roses, Bon Jovi, KISS, and many more. The Decade That Rocked showcases onstage and backstage moments and never-before-seen images from the period's most historic concerts, events, and album covers--all captured through the lens of Mark "Weissguy" Weiss. Growing up in Matawan, New Jersey, Mark filled his teenage nights sneaking into concerts to shoot the biggest acts of the '70s. After being arrested for selling photographs outside a KISS concert in 1977, he walked into the offices of Circus with his portfolio and soon landed his first centerfold spread--a photo of Aerosmith's Steven Tyler. Soon after, he became the publication's staff photographer. Throughout the '80s, his photos were seen by millions, appearing in countless magazines around the world and on the covers of the most iconic albums of the decade. Dig into Mark's archives and take a tour through never-before-seen photos of a teenage Jon Bon Jovi, and behind-the-scenes and unreleased images from the album shoot for Bon Jovi's Slippery When Wet and the band's decade-ending historic performance at the Moscow Music Peace Festival. Travel to Washington, DC, as Twisted Sister's Dee Snider sits before Congress to combat censorship at the infamous PMRC hearings. Captured from the unique vantage point of a photographer who lived and breathed the '80s in all its grit and glory, The Decade That Rocked brings to life the no-holds-barred sounds and sights that changed the world of hard rock and metal forever.
The definitive, no-holds-barred oral history of 1980s hard rock and hair metal, told by the musicians and industry insiders who lived it.
1980s hard rock was a hedonistic and often intensely creative wellspring of escapism that perfectly encapsulated--and maybe even helped to define--a spectacularly over-the-top decade. Indeed, fist-pumping hits like Twisted Sister's "We're Not Gonna Take It," M tley Cr e's "Girls, Girls, Girls," and Guns N' Roses' "Welcome to the Jungle" are as inextricably linked to the era as Reaganomics, Pac-Man, and E.T.
From the do-or-die early days of self-financed recordings and D.I.Y. concert productions that were as flashy as they were foolhardy, to the multi-Platinum, MTV-powered glory years of stadium-shaking anthems and chart-topping power ballads, to the ultimate crash when grunge bands like Nirvana forever altered the entire climate of the business, Nothin' But a Good Time captures the energy and excess of the hair metal years in the words of the musicians, managers, producers, engineers, label executives, publicists, stylists, costume designers, photographers, journalists, magazine publishers, video directors, club bookers, roadies, groupies, and hangers-on who lived it. Featuring an impassioned foreword by Slipknot and Stone Sour vocalist and avowed glam metal fanatic Corey Taylor, and drawn from over 200 new interviews with members of Van Halen, M tley Cr e, Poison, Guns N' Roses, Skid Row, Bon Jovi, Ratt, Twisted Sister, Winger, Warrant, Cinderella, Quiet Riot and others, as well as Ozzy Osbourne, Lita Ford and many more, this is the ultimate, uncensored, and often unhinged chronicle of a time where excess and success walked hand in hand, told by the men and women who created a sound and style that came to define a musical era--one in which the bands and their fans went looking for nothin' but a good time...and found it.
