About The Book

Neal Preston is one of the greatest rock photographers of all time. Exhilarated and Exhausted is a no-holds-barred complete retrospective of his 40-year career. Produced in collaboration with Preston, this book marks the first time he has allowed unrestricted access to his legendary archive, which is considered one of the music industry’s most significant and extensive photo collections.

This exceptional volume is a who’s who of rock royalty. Preston was the official tour photographer for Led Zeppelin, Queen, Bruce Springsteen and The Who, and has also extensively shot The Rolling Stones, Fleetwood Mac, Michael Jackson and many more. The book includes his portraits, backstage moments, live performances, post-performance highs and lows, and outtakes.

Preston’s photographs vibrate with a palpable and inimitable intensity. He is a true insider, and the images are brought alive by his accompanying text—a mind-bending insight into life on the road as a rock-'n-roll photographer.
