Van Halen Photo Book On the Horizon
To coincide with the upcoming Van Halen reunion tour, Chronicle Books is publishing the very first photo retrospective of the band, as seen through the lens of photographer Neil Zlozower.
From 1978 to 1984, rock photographer 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. This visual history collects more than 250 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, Mötley Crüe, Slipknot and many more. The book also includes an exclusive peek inside the band with a foreword by legendary frontman David Lee Roth.
The hardcover Van Halen: A Visual History will span 232 pages and cost $35.
