Guns N’ Roses Vook Released


Vook, an eBook meets video format, has published a new Guns N’ Roses title out called Reckless Road: Guns N’ Roses And The Making Of Appetite For Destruction. Marc Canter, Slash’s best friend of 30 years, wrote the book along with author/filmmaker Jason Porath.

According to a promo video on the Vook site, “Reckless Road is a visual chronology of the first 50 gigs Guns n Roses played as a band.” The title includes audio from the early gigs and videos of GNR and their friends from the early days.

With tales of living hand to mouth on the streets and eating onions to survive, the release recounts how GNR was formed and got signed. “It’s not as glamorous as one might imagine, but I suppose it is what you make of it,” says Slash in the video.

The release is available on iTunes for both iPads and iPhones, as well as from the Vook site. A print version of the book came out in November of 2007.
