Exclusive Guns N' Roses Photos From 'Reckless Road'

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.

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
