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.

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
