Guns N’ Roses’ Early Days Retrospective, By Marc Canter

Next year will mark the 30th anniversary of Guns N’ Roses, and Marc Canter, a friend of ex-guitarist Slash, was the first person to document the band. Canter would photograph and film the band, and collect tickets and ads from the very first day that Guns N’ Roses formed. He wanted to document his best friend’s band, which ended up being one of the most successful and well known rock bands of all time. In 2008 Canter was finally able to publish his photographic essay, detailing the band’s first historic gigs, with Reckless Road. Recently I caught up with Marc Canter, and we discussed how he got into photography, his relationships with GNR members, and why he stopped photographing the band.
