Bon Jovi 1984-1994 A Photographic History by Ross Halfin – NEW BOOK – 2022 – Commentary by Doc McGhee

Ross Halfin:

Very pleased to announce my latest book; Bon Jovi coming soon from Rufus Publications.

Pre-Order is available now from the Rufus website.

The book extensively covers the work I did with Bon Jovi from the mid-’80s onwards. Early photoshoots in New Jersey, opening for Kiss, playing early at Donington 1985 all the way to mega stardom, three nights at Wembley Stadium, The Tokyo Dome and every Arena in America; on stage, off stage, on the road etc. This book offers a unique look into one of the most important bands of their era.

At over 400 oversized pages this unique, photographic book covers the band for a ten-year period.

Ross had unique access to the band and the book features both intimate and stunning live portraits of the group as they reached the height of their worldwide fame. Many of the shots have never been published before and were scanned and digitally cleaned for the book. Legendary band manager Doc McGhee provides a full commentary for the text of the book and has also signed the numbered, limited edition version.

As Doc says in the book: “Even today, Jon is still driven. He loves this stuff. He still has the drive. Others might out-sing him, out-play him and out-dance him, but you can’t out-work him. He’s one of the hardest-working guys and one of the best frontmen in the world.”

The book perfectly captures the band at their commercial best and is available in a very limited quantity. The book measures 245mm x 345mm and is printed on 170gsm art paper.
