This world-class photography book, exclusively featuring the work of photographer Mark Weiss, documents the superstars of ’80s rock, showcasing era-defining images as well as never-before-published photographs, exclusive interviews with the icons of the era, and behind-the-scenes stories from the decade’s most historic concerts, festivals, music video shoots, and backstage moments. Here the images that defined rock’s most riotous era are presented along with the wild stories behind them. Learn what went down at the photo shoot for Bon Jovi’s Slippery When Wet—including the scouting trips to the Jersey Shore in search of the “Slippery Girl” for the infamous cover that was shelved in the U.S.—and on set during the shooting of Twisted Sister’s “We’re Not Gonna Take It” and “I Wanna Rock,” Mötley Crüe’s “Smokin’ in the Boy’s Room,” Ozzy’s “Miracle Man,” Warrant’s “Cherry Pie,” and Bon Jovi’s “Bad Medicine.” The Decade That Rocked chronicles, for the first time, Weiss’s collected work, delivering a powerful illustrated homage to the flash flood of sex, spandex, music, makeup, and mayhem that hit the ’80s hard rock scene like a hurricane.
