Reckless Road is the only authorized book documenting the beginning When teenager and amateur photographer Marc Canter set out to document his best friend Saul Hudson's rise as a rock guitarist in 1983, he never imagined that he was actually documenting the genesis of the next great rock and roll band of the era. His friend became the legendary guitarist Slash and Mr. Canter found himself front and center, witnessing the creation of Guns N' Roses. Mr. Canter photographed every gig the band played on the Sunset Strip, from their first show together on June 6, 1985, to their first international tour as a newly signed act for Geffen Records. Luckily for the fans, Mr. Canter also had the foresight to audio and videotape every performance, leaving a well-documented legacy few bands can boast. Original gig memorabilia including show flyers, ticket stubs, set lists, press clippings, and hand-written song lyrics round out this unique collection.
To accompany this rare and unprecedented photo and memorabilia archive, Reckless Road narrates Guns N' Roses' rise to stardom by the original band members and the people who were closest to them. Reckless Road provides exclusive never-before-heard interviews with:
Slash, former Guns N' Roses guitarist

An avid collector, Mr. Canter meticulously documented the rise of Guns N' Roses that culminated in the release of their groundbreaking album, Appetite for Destruction. Mr. Canter is proud and excited to share his memories with the public for the first time. Mr. Canter lives in Los Angeles, California.
"He's my best friend; one of the only good friends that is consistent... There isn't a better person to actually release any material having to do with the coming together and history of Guns N' Roses and where it went and what was going on behind the scenes."
- Slash, on Marc Canter
"When Guns N' Roses formed, Marc became like the sixth guy in the band. He was always around and had unlimited access to the band, especially in the early days... He believed in us from the beginning and had a much broader view of what the band was about than we had from the early stages. He documented the whole thing, tirelessly."
- Duff McKagan, on Marc Canter
