"Marc's my best friend; and one of the only good friends that is consistent in my life. There isn't a better person to actually release any material having to do with the coming together and history of Gun's N' Roses, Where it went and what was going on behind the scenes."
"When Gun's N' Roses formed, Marc became like the sixth guy in the band. He believed in us from the beginning and had a much broader view of what the band was about than even we had. He documented the whole thing tirelessly."
