Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx expressed his respects and gratitude to Ross Halfin who was the man behind the amazing photoshoots of the Legendary rock and metal bands.

Although Ross Halfin has studied fine art, he accidentally has become more interested in music photography by sneaking cameras into the concerts of AC/DC and Led Zeppelin. Later, his interest has turned to his profession and passion and he traveled with iconic bands such as Iron Maiden, Metallica, Def Leppard, Guns N’ Roses, KISS, and Mötley Crüe as the official tour photographer.

Also, he has shot albums, three exhibitions named The Age Of Rock, The Ultimate Metallica, and Made Of Metal along with countless posters and magazine covers. But, only a few people know this hero who is the great memory collector of worldwide known metal and rock bands.

On his Instagram account, Nikki Sixx posted his photo with Ross Halfin as a tribute to his greatest shootings for both Mötley Crüe’s and other legends’. 

Here’s what he shared:

“Known this vagabond cannibal a long time. He has taken some of the greatest photos in Rock ‘n’ roll and still wears his sarcasm on his sleeve. He doesn’t give a fuck what anybody thinks which is about as Rock ‘n’ roll as gets.”
