Van Halen, USA 1981
Van Halen poses for a group shot in 1981.
After a show in 1981, Weiss asked the band to pose in front of a bunch of balloons. It was for an anniversary of a rock magazine he can't quite recall. "Back then, there was Circus, Hit Parader, Faces and a bunch of overseas magazines," he says. "I wanted to shoot as many different situations and backgrounds as possible, so I could sell the photos to different magazines and offer them exclusives."
