Neal Preston was, and still is, is one of the lucky few allowed inside, behind the velvet rope, touring with superstars and capturing the entire experience on film. His body of work spans almost 4 decades, and his photographs document many of the music industry’s most important moments.
He has worked closely with rock royalty such as Led Zeppelin, The Who, Bruce Springsteen, Queen, David Bowie, Fleetwood Mac, Madonna, and countless other luminaries.
Preston was one of the official photographers for the “Live Aid” concert at London’s Wembley Stadium. He has also directed various music projects, including a live performance video for Stevie Nicks and a documentary on Alice Cooper.
Preston’s photos have gone on to be shown at such varied institutions as the Smithsonian Museum, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and Wembley Stadium.
