There is no better person to post material having to do with the rapprochement and history of Gun's N 'Roses, where it has been and what is going on behind the scenes. SLASH “When Gun's N 'Roses formed, Marc became like the sixth guy in the group. He believed in us from the start and had a much bigger vision of what the band was like than even us. He documented everything relentlessly. DUFF MCKAGAN "Marc Canter - without you?" From the credits "Appetite for Destruction"
