Photographer Mark Weiss is on the DISCovery podcast to talk about his brand new book out now called "The Decade That Rocked: The Photography Of Mark "Weissguy" Weiss". Mark's credits include Mötley Crüe's first appearance in a national publication, Oui Magazine in 1982, countless magazine covers and spreads worldwide, and the iconic imagery for many multi-platinum albums including Bon Jovi's 'Slippery When Wet' and Twisted Sister's 'Stay Hungry'.
His career-spanning book features never-before or rarely seen photos of legends like Van Halen, Ozzy Osbourne, Aerosmith, and Mötley Crüe, Metallica, Guns N’ Roses, Bon Jovi, and KISS and more. It also includes exclusive interviews with Ozzy Osbourne, Dee Snider, Nikki Sixx, Joe Perry, Rob Halford, and many more who recall their memories of this era-defining decade.
You'll also get to 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.
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.
In this episode Mark takes us back to the 80s and behind the scenes to share some amazing stories including: The iconic Twisted Sister 'Stay Hungry' album photo shoot that almost broke the band, the last-minute plastic bag decision that saved Bon Jovi's 'Slippery When Wet' album cover, David Lee Roth up in a tree with his kite, how neck biting with Mötley Crüe led to his nickname "Weissguy", his stolen Poison photos and more.
