These images have been splashed on the covers and pages of magazines from Rolling Stone, Guitar Player, Metal Hammer, Guitar World, Drum, to Playgirl, as his “ardent lens not only immortalised their wild and ‘larger than life’ personas and the era during which they were taken, but Zloz’s photos also give some insight into his intimate friendships with rock music’s behemoths”.

A digital version of the photograph as an exclusive one-of-one NFT minted on the Ethereum blockchain. The item is brought to life in an even more personal way through Zloz’s exclusive audio narration, which is minted as part of this NFT. An NFT is a unique and non-interchangeable unit of data stored on the blockchain.

Mixdown’s favourite Julien’s Auctions will be auctioning off the collection, head to their website for more details.
