What people are saying about Mark Weiss
Mark “WEISSGUY” Weiss got his start in photography as a teen in the 1970s in Matawan, NJ. After getting his first camera in trade for mowing a neighbor’s lawn for the summer, Weiss began sneaking into concerts, and the rest is quite literally rock ‘n’ roll history. He has traveled the globe photographing legends from Van Halen, Ozzy Osbourne, Aerosmith and Mötley Crüe to Metallica, Guns N’ Roses, Bon Jovi and KISS. Weiss’s iconic images capture the artists onstage, backstage, and behind the scenes. He documented historic events including the US Festival, Live Aid, the Moscow Music Peace Festival, and the PMRC hearings in Washington, DC. His photographs have been published in thousands of magazines worldwide, and he is responsible for two of the era’s defining album covers, Bon Jovi’s Slippery When Wet and Twisted Sister’s Stay Hungry. His inimitable photographs helped craft the visual imagery of rock and metal in the 1980s and beyond.
The Decade That Rocked, released in June, is now in its second print run and boasts over 500 five-star reviews on Amazon. Weiss has appeared on Australia’s Today show and has been featured in The Washington Post, The Daily Beast and Rolling Stone in support of the book.
