Quotes:
Excellent show, excellent show. It was excellent. [The audience were] like the LA Street Scene, but a little bit more in control. [KNAC, December 1996]
That was probably one of the better shows we ever played. Fantastic, the people that were there. We went on an hour early, so it wasn't as full as by the time Cheap Trick came on. They were slamming. It was every kind of people you could imagine there, and everybody was thrashing. [KNAC, December 1996]
Talking about meeting and opening for Johnny Thunders at Fender's Ballroom in 1986: ...Unfortunately, one of the first things that happened when we got down to Fender's for the show was that Johnny started to chat up Axl's girlfriend Erin while we were onstage doing sound check. Johnny also where he could score come dope. Axl flipped out when he got wind that Johnny had hit on Erin, and began a tirade back-stage. Axl could be intimidating when he started yelling and carrying on. Johnny spent the rest of the night hiding in his dressing room, jonesing for a fix. Whatever remnants of a romantic and swashbuckling image I had of Johnny Thunders disappeared that night [Duff's autobiography, "It's So Easy", 2011, p 58]
