Growing up best friends with Slash and Axl Rose, Marc Canter had a front-row seat for the rise and fall of one of the greatest rock bands of all time. Nearly thirty years later, if anyone knows what it will take to get them back together, it’s him.

“It’s just a shame to watch two of my best friends that made beautiful music together not communicate at all for the wrong reasons,” Marc said of Slash and Axl.

“I love them both. They’re very special people to me. I wish they would love each other again, you know, ’cause we were all one big happy family.

“Slash was my best friend since I’m 11, but when I met Axl, we insantly became very, very close friends.

“They know they needed each other back then. They know they need each other now. You put those guys together in that little fifteen-dollar-an-hour rehearsal space where it all started, that’s all you need.”

Originally published in America in 2008, “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
