Legendary Rock Photographer To Sign Copies Of 'Six-String Heroes' Book

Rock and roll photographer Neil Zlozower will sign copies of "Six-String Heroes" (Chronicle Books), his new book that showcases 150 of the greatest guitar players in history, on Saturday, December 5 between 2:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. at Mr Musichead Gallery (7511 W. Sunset Blvd.) in Hollywood, California.

With a forty-year career as a top rock and roll photographer, Neil Zlozower has seen and done it all, and then some. Simply stated, if you know anything about music, then you have most certainly heard of "Zloz." Known around the world for hundreds of magazine and album covers, his images have often solidified the iconic visual images of many music idols and lent the man himself to reach his own legendary rock and roll status.

The most recognized rock photographer from the '70s and '80s, Zlozower toured extensively with VAN HALEN and MÖTLEY CRÜE and in their heyday. These raucous experiences lent to Zlozower's two previously released books, both aptly titled "A Visual History", and published by Chronicle Books in 2008 and 2009 respectively. Zlozower's "Fuck You: Rock and Roll Portraits" was also released by Chronicle Books in 2008 and features a veritable rock and roll hall of fame of musicians such as GUNS N' ROSES, BON JOVI, AEROSMITH, POISON, and Zakk Wylde flipping Zlozower the bird as a playful celebration of rock and roll attitude. With a studio located in the heart of Hollywood since the '70s, Zloz is a guy that remains true to his L.A. roots.

His newest release, "Six-String Heroes", is a stripped down collection of live, candid and studio shots of 150 of the greatest guitar players to ever live. The book is a must-have for every guitar enthusiast and anyone who knows one. The dynamic assortment of players includes Eric Clapton, LED ZEPPELIN, Jeff Beck, John Frusciante, Les Paul, Slash, Joe Satriani, Dimebag Darrell, Chuck Berry, Zakk Wylde, Tom Waits, RATT and countless others. "Six-String Heroes" features a foreword by Steve Vai and includes text from countless unpublished interviews throughout the book by music journalist Steven Rosen.

The December book event co-sponsored by Guitar Center will feature all of Zlozower's books. Fine art photographs of famous Zlozower images will be on display.

Zloz has invited MANY special friends to the event…with him it's clear that this could mean anyone and everyone, and clearly it's sure to be a great time!!!
