Product Description

This comprehensive collection features more than twenty years’ worth of previously unpublished photographs of guitar legend Slash—in all, more than 100 arresting images from the lens of esteemed rock photographer Robert Knight. These images trace the significant milestones in Slash’s career and show him onstage, in the studio, and at home. Knight’s talent for capturing the true essence of his subject is on full display: Candid, dramatic, and often funny, these photos take us beyond the big hair, the big hat, and the huge guitar riffs to underscore the larger-than-life personality and genuine enthusiasm that have made Slash one of rock’s most recognizable figures for more than three decades.

For every fan, Slash: An Intimate Portrait is a visual tour de force and a celebration of this rock icon.

Robert Knight, Photographer: Robert Knight's career spans from the 1960s to the present as one of the premier photographers for the music industry, rock publications, and music equipment manufacturers. He made his mark in 1968, showing up in Seattle with a single roll of film to capture shots of Jimi Hendrix. Knight's images of Hendrix entering his adrenaline fueled guitar trances were instantaneously immortalized on the pages of magazines and newspapers, propelling Knight into a career as a professional rock photographer. Knight is best known for his "Guitar Legend" archive, havingworked with such artists as Jimi Hendrix, Jeff Beck, Led Zeppelin, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Eric Clapton and contemporary performers like John Mayer, Slash, and Green Day. When he's not photographing, Knight serves as the co-director of Hollywood's Rock Walk in Los Angeles. He is a feature photographer in the Rock and Roll Gallery and a retrospective of his work is currently exhibited at over 160 Guitar Centers across the United States.
