Quotes:
Duff: The icing on the cake came a week later, when Guns rechristened the Whisky a Go Go on April 5; the legendary Sunset Strip venue was being converted back into a club after serving as a band for a few years. The poster asked, WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU SAW A REAL ROCK N' ROLL BAND AT THE WHISKY A GO GO? And, since it was assume we'd be making a record soon and then be off to tour the world - or, as eventually was the case, one-horse towns in the Canadian rust belt - below that was written: THIS COULD BE YOUR LAST CHANCE. Reopening the Whisky was sweet. It meant that somehow, despite the fact that nobody gave us the time of day on the Strip during the year it took us to find an audience for our idiosyncratic sound and style, we now embodied L.A. rock and roll to the extent that this legendary venue wanted to associate itself with us to restake its claim on the city's musical landscape [Duff's autobiography, "It's So Easy", 2011, p. 114].
