July 30, 2007 5:18 PM ET

The new book Reckless Road by Marc Canter -- an amateur photographer and owner of L.A.'s famed Canter's Deli -- documents Guns N' Roses' early years via never-before-seen photos and lots of memorabilia. Canter, who was a childhood friend of Saul Hudson (also known as Slash) was just a teenager when he began shooting photos of his friends' band. Canter was there, snapping away at GN'R's first show on June 6, 1985 and he and his camera followed the band's every subsequent move. The book, which came out Friday, can be ordered with one of six custom covers featuring Axl, Slash, Izzy, Duff, Steven or a full band shot.

Check out these exclusive images, straight from Canter's project. here.

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
