Description

Megadeth: Another Time, A Different Place gives the audience a front-row seat into the early days and meteoric rise of this young band who would become one of the most influential groups of all time and, with Anthrax, Slayer, and Metallica, consistently touted among the best “thrash metal” bands ever to cross the stage. This is the first Megadeth photography book and only the second book documenting their rise to rock glory, including rare, never-before-seen photographs representing a small but crucial period of time in their career. Hale’s photographs, from intimate backstage photographs to screaming, kinetic live shots, are the images of a young band prepared to take on the world.

“The ‘work’ that you hold in your hands now is the work of a friend, who is also a ‘photo-grrrrrrr-apher,’ and who has captured the very essence of my career: hungry, gritty, hard, cold, impersonal, personal, and very personal. Also, the sensitive unseen side of me, which was somewhat of an anomaly with the public and left me an enigma to my peers.”
—Dave Mustaine from the Foreword




About the Author

Bill Hale started photographing rock and roll bands in 1979 at the age of 18. In the 80s, Bill was the Chief Photographer for Metal Rendezvous International magazine. While on staff he was able to shoot many of the top bands of the day including Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Riot, and UFO. Bill was fortunate enough to photograph many legends on their last tours of the states, Phil Lynott (Thin Lizzy), Bon Scott (AC/DC), Freddie Mercury (Queen), and Rory Gallagher, to name a few. He also photographed Metallica and published his work on them in a book called Metallica: The Club Dayz 1982-1984 (ECW Press, 2009). Bill now lives in Hawaii and still works with rock-and-rollers.
