One of the most iconic rock music photographers of all time, Ross Halfin, posted a couple of special photos on his official Instagram page today and took fans’ attention with those frames.

Ross unearthed one of the most special photos of Van Halen frontman David Lee Roth, and one of his followers who commented on the post was yet another legend, Nikki Sixx of Mötley Crüe.

Here is what Ross wrote about the photos:

Mötley Crüe legend showed his respect to David by writing this:

“He was the king.”

An Instagram user named s_t_e_w_b_k_l_y_n wrote this:

“That was the third time I saw them in London that year. Twice supporting Sabbath and then at The Rainbow. They were so good back then.”

Another user named christomasto responded:

“His albums with Steve Vai on guitar are highly underrated 🤘”
