By looking at the backcover of this book you can see that the author Marc Canter is definitely a Guns n' Roses inside man. There is a lot of great never before seen pictures of the band just moments before their big break.
You find a lot of poor, rip-off books about Guns N' Roses but this one is not one of those. Do yourself a favor and order yours today. No GN'R fan should let this one pass.
Il prodotto è arrivato puntuale ed in perfetto ordine. Lo cercavo da tempo in quanto ha delle bellissime foto, l'unico aspetto che non avevo considerato è che è tutto in inglese. comunque il libro si acquista per le foto, per il resto mi servirà come esercizio per riprendere confidenza con la lingua inglese....
Marc has just done a great job. Loved the way it was put together with the setlists, comments, backstory on the making of the greatest rock album of all time, Appetite For Destruction. I just loved seeing all his personal scrapbook items: ticket stubs,posters, flyers, etc. Of course, you buy it for the photos! They are amazing as Marc was front and center, backstage, offstage and he takes awesome photos yet humbly calls himself an amateur photographer. The grammar and spelling might not be perfect, but the photos are. I've read all the member's books and this is great to put the photos with the detailed stories they tell about each particular gig-the little notes of what went on and dialogue onstage that Marc actually recorded (part of the enhanced features). Loved the sexy info and photos. Like that Michelle Young contributed, how cool, "My Michelle" is one of my favorites. I was a little worried that since Marc was Slash's best friend, there might not be enough Axl in the book. Don't worry, there is plenty of Axl in some of his best outfits from the club days. Buy it already!
I thought that Reckless Road was very informative as to how the band took over the Sunset Strip music scene, giving a look at their lives and just how many people are still around to tell stories about it. To be honest, it could be about the making of Appetite from a raw, gritty, energetic point, since the book bears many quality photos covering nearly all of their live shows in L.A. Strippers, old friends, manager, and A&R scouts are there to share a lot about GNR and their wild antics. As for the album, well, any Guns N' Roses fan by now knows the songs and the stories behind those songs by heart. (This being 2014, that is.) Either that or Appetite for Destruction kind of just speaks for itself. Still, a great book that lets you appreciate the first fan of Guns N' Roses' work, as well as Marc's own work. I'm proud to have this book on my shelf. There just aren't bands like this anymore.
