In a career spanning more than 40 years, legendary rock photographer Neil Zlozower has documented an amazing who's-who of the most influential and dynamic guitarists from the late 1960s to today. Six-String Heroes collects live, candid, and studio shots of 150 of the greatest guitar players in rock, metal, punk, blues, and beyond, including Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Ritchie Blackmore, Slash, Jimmy Page, Keith Richards, Zakk Wylde, Dimebag Darrell, Tom Morello, Carlos Santana, Les Paul, John Lee Hooker, Chuck Berry, Pat Metheny, Al Di Meola, Joe Satriani, Yngwie Malmsteen, Edward Van Halen, Angus Young, and many more. Also featuring a foreword by Steve Vai, and including text from unpublished interviews with the guitarists throughout by music journalist Steven Rosen, Six-String Heroes is a celebration of the music, the players, and the instrument.
