Marc Canter to Exhibit Limited Edition Photographs

Guns N' Roses Photographer and Author Marc Canter to Exhibit Limited Edition Photographs and Sign Copies of His Book on October 20 at the Rock and Roll Emporium

Huntington Beach, CA, October 07, 2010 -- Marc Canter, local businessman, amateur photographer and author will exhibit limited edition photographs and sign copies of his book of Reckless Road: Guns N' Roses and the making of Appetite for Destruction at the Rock & Roll Emporium in conjunction with downtown Huntington Beach’s "Surf City Art Walk" Wednesday, October 20 from 6-9pm.

Marc Canter is an amateur photographer and the owner and general manager of the legendary Rock & Roll hangout, Canter's Deli, in Los Angeles, California. He has been friends with Slash for over 34 years and, has had unlimited access to the formative years of one of the greatest rock bands of all time, Guns N' Roses. An avid collector, Canter is proud and excited to share his memories with the public for the first time.

When teenager and amateur photographer Marc Canter set out to document his best friend Saul Hudson's rise as a rock guitarist in 1982, he never imagined he was documenting the genesis of the next great Rock & Roll band. His friend became the legendary guitarist Slash, and Canter found himself witnessing the creation of Guns N' Roses front and center.

The candid shots contained in Reckless Road, taken as the band toured in 1985-1987 and made the legendary album Appetite for Destruction, capture their raw, blood-sweat-and-tears performances as well as their intimate moments. Containing original gig memorabilia including show flyers, ticket stubs, set lists, press clippings, and handwritten lyrics as well as in-depth interviews with band members and the people closest to them, Reckless Road offers an explicit, first-person perspective readers won't find anywhere else.

The Rock & Roll Emporium is a leading resource for Rock & Roll Memorabilia, Guitars and Gifts and is a major attraction for downtown Huntington Beach, CA — Surf City, USA. The store has collected authentic autographed guitars; drum heads, photos, collectibles and rock & roll-inspired apparel and accessories from many of the best-known and respected artists in the world.
