The name Neil Zlozower is probably familiar to you if you’re a fan of hair metal, Chronicle Books, or both. The prolific photog is now on his fourth book for Chronicle, titled Mötley Crüe: A Visual History: 1983-2005. As you might expect from Six-String Heroes, Van Halen: A Visual History: 1978-1984, and Fück Yöu, the book contains acres of teased, dyed hair, hillocks of rouge, and just a little booze. Zloz recently stopped by St. Louis’ KMOX radio station to talk with John Carney about the book, buddying up with Nikki Sixx, how he got his start as an amateur photographer, and his early dream to be a garbage man. Special bonus: the Zloz’s speaking voice approaches the platonic ideal of “classic rock radio DJ.” Check it out here.
