Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) August 3, 2007
Shoot Hip Press has just released Reckless Road Guns N' Roses The Making of Appetite for Destruction.
Marc Canter witnessed the creation of Guns N' Roses and 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 (Shoot Hip Press is proud to partner with enhancedbooks.com, a revolutionary online hub that bridges printed books with digital media, to bring Mr. Canter's rare and previously unheard and unseen audio and video archive to audiences worldwide). With nearly a thousand never-before-seen photos, original gig memorabilia, hand-written song lyrics and exclusive interviews with over 20 people (including Slash, Duff, Steven Adler, Tom Zutaut, Vicky Hamilton, Ron Schneider, Adriana "Rocket Queen" Smith, Pamela Jackson and many more), Reckless Road chronicles the formation and rise to stardom of Guns N' Roses and the creation of their seminal groundbreaking rock album, Appetite for Destruction.
Marc Canter together with Author and Film-maker Jason Porath, have achieved a well-documented legacy few bands can boast . It is already proving to be a great hit - Rolling Stone Magazine dedicated their August cover story to the 20 year anniversary of Appetite of Destruction and included photos and excerpts from the book. This in turn has generated fantastic interest from Guns N' Roses fans and immediate sales.
Excerpts of the book, never-before-seen photos, memorabilia etc can be viewed on the official book and publishing websites http://www.recklessroad.com/http://www.shoothip.com. 347 Full Colour Pages - 1000 + photos - illustrations, memorabilia and personalized covers of AXL, SLASH, IZZY, DUFF AND STEVE available 10 September 2007 (orders now being accepted).
