Intimate portraits of legendary musicians from the 1970s and 80s.
Rock photography is dead.
Blame overzealous predatory photographers.
Blame all the people who made access to musicians near impossible.
As the newest book by legendary rock photographer Neal Preston proves – when it comes to the best in music photography – access is everything.
Exhausted and Exhilarated, (Reel Art Press, 2017) is filled with never-before-seen photos of unguarded backstage moments – shots from behind amps on stage and in limos and hotel rooms of all the biggest musicians of the 1970s and ’80s.
Preston captured some of the most notorious rock tours of all time: Led Zeppelin at their absolute peak – The Who in their full Keith Moon raucousness – Frampton filling enormous stadiums.
