Legendary rock n’ roll photographer Gene Kirkland, who is recognized worldwide for photographing the biggest names in rock and metal throughout the 80’s and 90’s, has opened up his archives for the first time in history! Twelve months ago, Kirkland teamed up with Black Lightning Gallery (www.BlackLightningGallery.com) to unearth a generous stash of shots that had remained hidden and locked away since those glory days – many spanning back nearly twenty years!

Black Lightning Gallery undertook what can only be described as a painstaking labor of love to curate, restore and unveil these rare images. In addition, they worked to select iconic, renowned shots to be released as limited edition fine art prints (see below for more info).

Kirkland, in association with Los Angeles’ Black Lightning Gallery, has unveiled the first selection of images from the collection, including GUNS N’ ROSES during the “Sweet Child ‘O Mine” video shoot, OZZY OSBOURNE backstage with a white dove, IRON MAIDEN at Long Beach Arena in 1985, MOTLEY CRUE during the “Girls, Girls, Girls” video shoot, Randy Rhoads, Steve Vai with David Lee Roth, METALLICA with Cliff Burton, BLACK SABBATH, JUDAS PRIEST, VAN HALEN and many more.

MAKE THESE PRINTS YOUR OWN!

Visit Black Lightning Gallery now via BlackLightningGallery.Com and experience their brand new online presence! The new site features many exclusive images, hand signed by Gene Kirkland himself, which are all available to the public for purchase as limited numbered editions. The website has many fan bonuses including exclusive looks at images of backstage passes from the shows, personal memories from Gene Kirkland and many more.

***Once the numbered limited editions sell out, there will not be reprints! More historic images will be added over time.

“I hope you enjoy looking back at these amazing memories as much as I enjoyed capturing them. These photographs hold very dear memories of a glorious time and I am proud to have them available to fans worldwide.” - Gene Kirkland, Photographer

“Black Lightning Gallery is honored to be working with Gene in releasing these seminal works in the history of Rock and Roll. As huge music fans ourselves it's incredible to see these frames and just as exciting for us to know fans would have a chance to own one.” – Rohan Ocean, Black Lightning Gallery
