The video podcast “The First 50 Gigs” is the creation of “Reckless Road: Guns N’ Roses And The Making Of Appetite For Destruction” authors Marc Canter and Jason Porath. The book, which was published in 2008 and won an IPPY for “Pop Culture Book Of The Year”, was just the tip of the iceberg of an archive created by Canter, photographer, music historian and owner of the world-famous Canter’s Deli. Canter captured Guns N’ Roses’ formative years and the heyday of the Sunset Strip music scene. The project was designed as a gift to fans to unlock the stories behind the most famous songs from the ever-elusive band, in particular the younger fans, many of whom were not even born when “Appetite” came out. It’s an opportunity for them to learn about the stories behind the making of “Appetite For Destruction”. The show, which is part of the Pantheon podcast network, is available on all major services, with premium tiered subscription offers available on Spotify and Patreon.
