Can Canter's Deli Bring Guns N' Roses Back Together?

The Canter's Deli heir wants to get the band back together.

In a new three-part documentary series, viral video site Uproxx is looking to reunite one of the greatest hair bands of all time, Guns N' Roses. And apparently they can't do it without Marc Canter of Canter's Deli on Fairfax.

Anyone who's spent time inside the aging expanse of Canter's knows the history of the place, not just as a cultural Jewish icon for L.A. but as a surprising home base for some of the most popular bands of the past 50 years. The attached Kibitz Room is a divey bit of rock history unto itself, having hosted bands like The Doors and Frank Zappa throughout the years. So it's no surprise that Canter, who shot photos and video for the band as they rose to stardom (and eventually compiled many of these memories in a book), would be the first one in years to try to reunite the contentious band members.

In the video above, Canter walks through some of his archives and talks about the rise of the band, before ultimately trying to scheme on ways to get Axl Rose and Slash in the same room for the first time in many years. Maybe over a sandwich at Canter's?
