"This DVD Collectors Box is a 2 disc set which tells the complete and extraordinary story of Guns N Roses using never-before-seen performance and interview footage..."

This was the blurb used to sell this DVD. Reading that, I kind of expected to see something relating to Guns n' Roses that I hadn't seen before. I'm sad to say I was sorely disappointed.

The first warning sign appeared before the documentary even started, as when I pressed play, a disclaimer appeared on the screen stating that the DVD contained NO MUSIC BY GUNS N'ROSES as it was an unauthorized documentary (I'm not paraphrasing). I was then bombarded by interviews with people who claimed to have "hung out" with the band in their early days, edited together with old newspaper and magazine photos of the band and occasional footage from the Use Your Illusion tour (Without any sound). What's the point of showing Guns n' Roses concert footage without sound? The only time you actually hear band members speak is in a really old interview which has absolutely no bearing on the documentary at all.

What I'd really like to know is, where is this "never-before-seen performance footage" that's mentioned in the sales blurb? I learned nothing new from this DVD. All that's talked about in the documentary could quite easily have been picked up in an hour or so on Google. The publishers of this DVD are nothing more than opportunists trying to cash in on the re-emergence of Guns n' Roses. Amazon and other retailers should perhaps make it clearer that this is unauthorized, and doesn't even contain any music by the band. People might think twice about wasting their money.

For now, all I'll say is: If like me you are a true Guns n' Roses fan, DO NOT BUY THIS DVD.

This DVD set is a compilation of interviews from people inside the GnR camp and journalists that were covering the band at the time of their beginnings through their success. The two DVD's are comprised of previously available releases The Prettiest Rock Star which is based on Axl's upbringing in Indiana to his arrival in L.A. and Sex n' Drugs n' Rock n' Roll which covers the humble beginning of Guns n' Roses to rock icons. The cast of characters includes; Vicky Hamilton who was Hollywood Rose's first manager, Chris Weber Hollywood Rose guitarist, Robert John who was Guns' official photographer for several years and adding some credibility to this collection is journalist Malcolm Dome who you have seen on many documentaries in the past and is a regular on the Classic Albums series from the U.K. While there is some new ground that is uncovered more so on the Axl DVD The Prettiest Rock Star the bulk of the material is common knowledge for longtime fans and possibly for anyone who has viewed the VH-1's Behind the Music special. I found it a bit disturbing that Guns n' Roses get credit for the explosion of the L.A. Glam scene when clearly there were others that came before them that gain attention, namely; Motley Crue, Ratt and W.A.S.P. Also Guns n' Roses was given credit for making the music video such brilliant promotional tool for selling albums. I think the majority of the people that shared their opinions and views in these DVD's are just too damn biased to give you a neutral statement when it comes to Guns n' Roses. I would recommend this collection only to Guns n' Roses completists.

This DVD was absolutely terrible!! It is an unauthorized DVD with no orignial footage and all of the interviews are with people who barely knew the band members (or not at all). Don't waste your money!

Not What I Expected at all. Just 2 Unauthorised DVDs from UK. One of which I Already own. The Other, I have Already Seen and Chose Not to Purchase. No GN'R Music. Contains... Axl Rose, The Prettiest Star. And. Sex, Drugs and Rock N' Roll. Disappointing.
