Guns N’ Roses Photographer Jack Lue Candidly Opens Up About Band On Appetite For Distortion


Some of the most iconic Guns N’ Roses photos you have seen were taken before they were famous. Photographer Jack Lue was lucky enough to capture these special moments in rock history, especially since he went to High School with Slash, or as he knew him…Saul.

Before Jack calls in from Culver City, we are joined by another California native and frequent guest of the show, journalist Art Tavana. Art gives us updates on his GNR book and upcoming Chinese Democracy article.

Then the guys happily welcome Jack Lue. Jack takes us back to his High School days, where he met Slash, Steven Adler, and Marc Canter. Many of Jack’s classic photos are featured in Marc’s book “Reckless Road: Guns N’ Roses and the Making of Appetite for Destruction.” We learn about the early days of rock photography and if there are unreleased photos of GNR. What is in Jack’s collection that fans want? What is his current relationship with the band? We answer these questions and a lot more!
