From Raz' biography:

About two-thirds into Guns N' Roses' set, the free Heinekens caught up with me. I stashed my current Heineken on top of a stack of Peavey power amps and headed for the pisser. Just as I exited the restroom, the music stopped on a dime. Except for the murmuring crowd, the house was silent. I hurried back to the stage and almost bashed into an ultra-pissed Axl as he hit the bottom step. After he stormed past me, the rest of the guys were not far behind. I asked someone, "What happened?" Apparently, the PA had quit. Later, I heard someone from the crew guessing that a jealous Cult had ordered the sound guy to shut G N' R down.

Remember that Heineken I set on those power amps? Don't ever do that shit, because it might get knocked over. If beer spills into a power amplifier, not only must you procure more beer, a protect circuit will shut it down. From the stage monitor's failure onward, it was all a chain reaction toward a total PA failure. I almost fessed up later during a little after-show get-together inside an Embassy Suites room, but didn't want the party supplies cut off. Besides, G N' R were almost finished with their kick-ass set before... Oops! For those of you who attended the show, no worries. I managed to find another beer

From the "L.A. Dee Da On The Streets" column in L.A. Weekly, September 11, 1987:

1987.09.05 - Long Beach Arena, Long Beach, USA 1987_034
And since Billy Duffy loves this column so much, here’s the dirt: Guns 'n' Roses are whining over the fact that the Cult supposedly pulled the plug on them at the Long Beach show on Saturday night. Billy claims that they are nowhere near desperate enough to stoop to such measures. So Firearms ’n’ Flowers are pouting until they see the alleged burnt-out fuse that shorted their set.
