Rock Reads: Bon Jovi – “When We Were Beautiful”

June 1, 2009
Publisher: Collins Design (excerpt from review by Anthony Kuzminski)

There are dozens of pictures from Mark Weiss. Weiss shot the infamous banned (and released) covers for Slippery When Wet and was an integral part of capturing the image and spirit of the band during their first commercial heyday. Weiss managed to seize the band at their most youthful and exuberant before and amidst international fame. These were five kids living out their dreams at a time of innocence before taking pictures was a laborious task. His images inside When We Were Beautiful are reason enough to own this book. They're such a trip down memory lane that it makes me yearn for a full-blown book of pictures from him devoted to Bon Jovi. Bill Hale recently released a book on Metallica's early club years and while I wasn't old enough to witness the magic of Metallica, his pictures made me feel like I was there. I wish Weiss would do the same with Bon Jovi, as these are more than pictures, but a time capsule to the past.
