'Shooting live music performances is something few photographers do really well. I just happened to discover one day that I was pretty good at it.' Neal Preston is one of the greatest rock photographers of all time. Exhilarated and Exhausted is a no-holds-barred complete retrospective of his more than 40-year career. Produced in collaboration with Neal, it is introduced by a foreword by Neal's close friend, the renowned writer and director Cameron Crowe, and an introduction by photo editor Dave Brolan. Neal's photographs vibrate with a palpable and inimitable intensity. As Crowe observes, 'You can feel the music, the audience, the desperate need to find a place in the world, all of it, in these photos because they were curated by the guy who felt it all when he pressed the button on the camera. They're snapshots of what's most elusive - truth and fun and for that one moment, on that one night, the thrill of belonging.' This exceptional volume is a who's who of rock royalty. Neal was

18 days, five countries, and seven concerts: this was how long-time Springsteen chronicler and veteran Backstreets contributor Caryn Rose spent her summer vacation, running from Paris to Prague to Vienna to London to Dublin, following Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band on tour. Were European Springsteen fans that different from their Stateside counterparts? Were the shows overseas truly better than the ones in the States? Part travelogue and part rock and roll love letter, Rose takes you with her every step of the way: queuing in the rain, sleeping on the sidewalk, and watching Paul Mc Cartney from the front row in London.

Massive music festivals--Monterey, Woodstock, Altamont--ushered rock 'n' roll into the 1970s, the decade that would feature some of the greatest musical performances of all time. Rock bands were writing increasingly expansive concept albums with sweeping themes, and as venues expanded in tandem with their creative ambitions, they were inspired to create elaborate stage shows as vehicles for their music. Their records promised "theater of the mind," and concerts brought these dreams to life.Rock concerts became mega-entertainment experiences, with artists using every available piece of stagecraft -- lights, projections, backdrops, props, and costumes. Musicians created flamboyant personas, delivering high-octane performances characterized by musical virtuosity in over-the-top theatrical spectacles, or just plain rebellious grit. I bore witness to these fantastic concerts in and around Los Angeles, California... the "city of angels." This book celebrates more than three-dozen of these incredible tours including key performances by bands such as Led Zeppelin, Queen, David Bowie, Fleetwood Mac, Genesis, Heart, Jethro Tull, Pink Floyd, The Who and Yes. We'll share memories of those legendary concerts and reviews of the best video documents of the era, each band illuminated by a hand-picked collection of brilliant images by the best photojournalists of that time including Richard E. Aaron, Jorgen Angel, Fin Costello, Armando Gallo, Neal Preston, Jim Summaria, Lisa Tanner and Neil Zlowzower along with many others. This is their story, and ours....
