Publisher Comments:

Rocking on tour with America's heavy metal superstars — Kiss, Poison, Iron Maiden, Slaughter, Ted Nugent, Dokken, and Cinderella — photographer David Yellen tailgated among the headbangers, metalheads, burnouts, and self-styled fanatics waiting for the show or hanging around backstage hoping to meet their idols. The results are a captivating record of Yellen's trip to metal's Shangri-la.

In 2000, Yellen drove more than 30,000 miles across America in his red Nissan 300 ZX — from Michigan to Miami, from Pennsylvania to Omaha — to relive a treasured part of his past, a time of innocence and rebellion when women had big hair and rock stars stood on stage as if they were Greek gods: he traveled back to the glory days of the "Hair Bands." In Too Fast for Love, Yellen captured a moment frozen in hairspray, chock-full of mullets, bleached perms, spandex cat suits, denim cutoffs, more pleather than you can imagine, leopard, tiger, and snake prints, ripped fishnets, bare breasts and hairy chests, studded belts and bracelets, G-strings and platforms, pierced nipples and tongues, raccoon eyes, press-on nails, and hyper lip liner. Bang your head to this!

Synopsis:

Just as Back in the Days by Jamel Shabazz (powerHouse Books, 2001) brought '80s hip-hop and street style to the forefront of fashion, and We're Desperate: The Punk Rock Photography of Jim Jocoy, SF/LA 1978–1980 (powerHouse Books, 2002) relived and revamped the glory of the punk rock era, Too Fast for Love: Heavy Metal Photography by David Yellen is the ultimate guide to the hottest new trend in retro-style — the white trash look of heavy metal fans, destined to be the hottest new craze in fashion magazines worldwide. Rocking on tour with America's heavy metal superstars — Kiss, Poison, Iron Maiden, Slaughter, Ted Nugent, Dokken, and Cinderella — Yellen captures the classically trashy style of the headbangers, metalheads, burnouts, and self-styled fanatics, tailgating in anticipation of the show or hanging by the backstage door hoping to make it to the promised land of the bands' dressing rooms. Yellen explores a moment frozen in hairspray, bleached perms, mullets, spandex cat suits, denim cutoffs, more pleather than you can imagine, leopard, tiger, and snake prints, ripped fishnets, bare breasts and hairy chests, G-strings and platforms, pierced nipples and tongues, studded belts and bracelets, raccoon eyes, press-on nails, and hyper lip liner.
