SLASH, 'Reckless Road' Book Author On 'Rockline'; Audio Available

VELVET REVOLVER/ex-GUNS N' ROSES guitarist Slash and Marc Canter, author of the book "Reckless Road: Guns N' Roses & The Making Of Appetite For Destruction", were the featured guests on the nationally syndicated radio show "Rockline" with host Bob Coburn on Monday, September 29. The program is now available for streaming at this location.

Marc Canter, the owner/manager of the legendary rock 'n' roll hangout Canter's Deli in Los Angeles, has been friends with Slash since the fifth grade when Slash allegedly tried to steal Marc's bike. Canter has photographed and recorded (audio and video) every performance that GUNS N' ROSES played on the Sunset Strip in the group's early days — from their first show on June 6, 1985, to their first intentional tour in 1987 as the "newly" signed act for Geffen Records.

"Reckless Road" contains interviews with Slash, Duff McKagan and Steven Adler, as well as groupies, failed producers, and former managers and bandmates. Canter amassed a treasure trove of memorabilia, including:

* Lyrics to "My Michelle", written on the back of a water-stained flier
* A $37,500 advance check from Geffen that has Slash's name misspelled as "Stash"
* 1,000 never-before-seen photos
* Audio/video recordings for the bands first 50 shows
