“It’s more than a treasure trove, it’s an encyclopedia.”
Guns N’ Roses fans rejoice. Childhood friend and self appointed documentarian of the group, Marc Canter, has released the teaser to his upcoming video podcast that intimately depicts the early days of the iconic band.
Named “GNR: The First 50 Gigs,” Canter interviews key players from Slash, to Duff McKagan and Steven Adler, as well as past band members, producers, even groupies of the band. Set to unique visuals that Canter himself captured, it tells the story of how the Los Angeles rockers formed and wrote the legendary album, “Appetite For Destruction.” The series goes even as far back as 1981, four years before the formation of Guns N’ Roses, to when Slash was just Saul Hudson.
“In the beginning I documented every gig they went to, at least 50 gigs,” Canter said in the preview. “I just knew it was special.”
Check out the teaser for the first episode below.
The first two episodes of GNR: The First 50 Gigs have officially been recorded and are in post-production. We can’t wait to share them with you. For now, here is a snippet of Episode 1. For more information on this project, subscribe here: https://t.co/gEecTiyeVf pic.twitter.com/v8lYjRFyEA
