It's a must for any fan of the band.
Debbie
You get the usual commercial view of them, but you also get personal photos which give a good insight into their lives.

As a huge fan of gnr, i was anxious to get some kind of book about them. I had all the records and even some rare bootlegs, but i could not find any literature about them. When i stumbled across this book at this site, it was an instant buy. i was very impressed at the quality and depth of Robert John's photographs. I have happened to see GN'R live and Robert John's photos certainly capture their flare and stage presence. A very good book. If you are looking for a biography go buy "The most Dangerous band in the world" or"The True story" If you want a good book of photos spanning GN'R wildest days, i suggest you buy this.

This is the only GNR book I have. I have only started liking them 6 months ago and I'm surprised that book stores still have GNR material around. I'm positive that any fan would love this book. The book has GNR pictured from their early days in 1985 to almost the end in 1992. I love the fact that Robert John shows them from the beginning with their teased hair, and lipstick to a more mature look as they get older. The book has concert photos, backstage pics, GNR rehersing and even some more personel ones with Axl by himself. If you are looking for a biography of the band, then don't buy this one. On the bottom of the pictures Robert John tells you the place and year it was taken but otherwise it is strictly just a photo book, nothing else. I highly recomend it in any way.

I've being a GNR fan since I was 8 and I was given this book when I was 12(I'm 25 now!). I still have it and its pages are falling out from looking through it countless times. It gives a good chronological look at the band which is left to your own interpretation as there is no text, which I felt was better since GNR fans are fed so many stories about the band. You get the usual commercial view of them, but you also get personal photos which give a good insight into their lives. I thoroughly recommend this book to GNR fans young and old.

This book contains several rarely seen pictures of the band. Some are action shots, while others are stills.. All in all, this book captures the G'N'R' attitude very well!

I had been wanting this book since I saw in back in '92 @ Barnes & Noble, yet I never made the purchase. I thought about it last month and found a copy in SUPER condiion at a killer low price. I made the purchase, had the book in my hands in one week.

Robert John is basically the only photographer to gain unlimited access to the band on the road, in the studio, and at their homes. As a result, his photographs are spur of the moment, and also sometimes planned, but ALL of his shots are EXCELLENT and there's no other photographer anywhere on earth to capture Guns the way Robert did. Axl & Guns gave Robert 100% all areas access, he delivered a stunning color and black & white collection that will never be matched.
