Mark has always been at the top of his field, and the level of detail and quality put into this book is the ultimate testament to his rock n' roll photographic legacy.” –  Sebastian Bach “Mark is the real deal. He may not play the guitar, but that camera is his guitar. He’s a rockstar.” – Gene Simmons "Mark’s energy, his creativity, his drive, his positive attitude and his enthusiasm that make him one of the legends of rock photography. It’s why his work—both old and new—is still so in demand today. Mark Weiss inspires greatness in all he turns his camera lens on. But don’t take my word for it. Just look at the pictures in this book." – Dee Snider “His pictures say as much as the music” – Rob Halford  “He was one of the guys. He wasn’t one of the 18 photographers you’d work with that day.” – Alice Cooper  “He had that instinct, to recognize our energy and use his technical talent to capture it.” – Joe Perry  Mark “Weissguy” Weiss set an unmatched standard for rock photography. Starting out as a teenager by sneaking into concerts with a neighbor’s 35mm camera, he embarked on a legendary career that took him around the globe and onto some of the most memorable album and magazine covers in rock history– featuring the likes of Van Halen, Ozzy Osbourne, Aerosmith, and Mötley Crüe to Metallica, Guns N’ Roses, Bon Jovi, and KISS, and so many more. With 700+ photos, brand new interviews, and stories from Mark himself, Decade that Rocked is a monument to the photography, friendships, and legacy of an artist that helped define one of rock’s most iconic eras.  This career-spanning collection features:    A unique lens on the golden age of rock: Never-before or rarely seen photos of legends like Van Halen, Ozzy Osbourne, Aerosmith, and Mötley Crüe to Metallica, Guns N’ Roses, Bon Jovi, and KISS, as well as countless others whose sound and image defined the era.  Exclusive interviews: Ozzy Osbourne, Dee Snider, Nikki Sixx, Joe Perry, Rob Halford, and many more recall their memories of this era-defining decade.  Untold Stories: Relive Mark’s unbelievable journey through rock history, from getting arrested for selling photos outside of Kiss concert to touring with legends like Van Halen, to photographing Bon Jovi’s infamous “Slippery When Wet” shoot, shooting backstage at Live Aid with Black Sabbath, and so many more.  Definitive Lens: Creem magazine readers ranked Mark Weiss as rock’s top photographer of the 80s. His work has appeared on some of the most iconic album and magazine covers of all time.    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.

Sigurna sam da, ni uz najbolju volju, početak XXI veka neće, jednoga dana, poneti titulu "dekade koja je rokala/rasturala". Uostalom, taj laskavi naziv je odavno rezervisan za, naravno, OSAMDESETE: vreme verovatno najbolje popularne muzike ikada. Mark Vajs (Mark Weiss) je vrhunski fotograf i jedan od najvećih vizuelnih hroničara rokenrola rečene epohe. Svojim objektivom zabeležio je manje-više sve značajne trenutke i događaje, od velikih koncerata, sada legendarnih foto-sesija pojedinačnih bendova, ikoničnih omota njihovih albuma... Kada sam (sasvim slučajno!) saznala da početkom juna izlazi ova izvanredna monografija, jednostavno sam bila sigurna da je MORAM imati. Postala sam opsednuta. Sticaj srećnih okolnosti (blizina rođendana i ušteđen novac, promotivna povoljna cena, odlična video recenzija Sebastijana Baha - jednog od "protagonista" Vajsove hard'n'heavy enciklopedije u slici i reči....) uticao je na to da pre nego što je prvi tiraž rasprodat ugrabim svoj primerak i, evo, danas je srećno stigao na moju adresu. Sa neopisivom pažnjom i ustreptalošću otpakivala sam sve slojeve. Miris sveže odštampanog, pre nego što se ukazaše korice i na njima "Guns'n'Roses": ali, najbolje je tek usledilo! Knjiga "The decade that rocked" je, najblaže rečeno, IMPRESIVNA. Luksuzna (pun kolor, ogroman "cigla" format, visoko kvalitetne fotografije), sistematična (pokriva, redom, svaku godinu između 1980. i 1990.), obuhvatna (svako ko je nešto značio na muzičkoj sceni prisutan je na ovim stranicama, od Dee Snider-a, "Motley crue", Bon Jovi-ja, Dejvida Li Rota, do "Skid Row", Ozzy-ja, tu je Dio, tu su AC/DC, KISS, Dikinson, "Judas priest" - Halford je i napisao predgovor, Lita Ford, Doro...), jednom rečju: ovo je apsolutni "must have" (u prevodu, stavka "pod obavezno") na polici svakog strastvenog ljubitelja 80s hard rock i heavy metal zvuka/supkulture/imidža, poput moje malenkosti. Novo papirno "čedo" se već smestilo na značajno mesto u sklopu kućne biblioteke i unapred se radujem pažljivom čitanju, prelistavanju, uživanju.... Dubok naklon i veliko HVALA autoru što je podigao ovaj spomenik jednom neverovatnom vremenu i zvuku koji odavno ne poznaje prolaznost i tek će, sve su prilike, pokazati koliko je zaista (bio) važan. "Pitaju me šta je ljubav - ja im kažem: rokenrol!" :))))) * Opširnija recenzija, nadam se, sledi dogodine, kada bude sproveden zaokret na blogu.

    You'll wish your old issues of Circus, Hit Parader and RIP were still around. Fun stroll down memory lane for any former headbangers (or the people who love them) You'll wish your old issues of Circus, Hit Parader and RIP were still around.

    What a time capsule of the excess that was Hard Rock & Metal of the '80s. Growing up south of Dallas/Fort Worth in the middle of (George Strait) country, I was probably a little behind most in getting into Rock music back then. By late '83/early '84 I was 14 and, having finally started listening to Top 40 Radio the year before, just getting acquainted with Ground Zero of Hair Metal: Motley Crue, Dokken, Bon Jovi, Ratt and the like. So it seems like I remember seeing every one one of Mark's photos What a time capsule of the excess that was Hard Rock & Metal of the '80s.

So it seems like I remember seeing every one one of Mark's photos that was published in a music rag from 1984 onward to the end of the decade. In the pre-internet days, Weiss just about lived the Rock Star life and didn't have to put up with the hassles associated with being recognized everywhere. (And he made pretty dang good money at it too, judging by the partial contract shown from him photographing Van Halen during their Chicago & Cleveland shows in 1984.)

    As someone who was completely immersed in this music, I loved looking through all these pictures! It was great seeing shots that weren't the ones we've already seen a million times. This will definitely be on my coffee table until my dying day ✌️😎🎸📸 As someone who was completely immersed in this music, I loved looking through all these pictures!

    I received this for Christmas. The pictures are great, but there are a number of random photos without any background. A few of the photo shoots have a story but many do not.
