Quote:
We did a show in Manchester. The people just stood there, they all stood up the whole time, right. And some of them were singing the songs and stuff but not so much as other places and we're having so much problem with feedback on stage I didn't know the people in the crowd weren't hearing it through the [...] monitor system. And so, we came back and did one song encore and left. We went up to our room, didn't think they liked it. Right? Then about fifteen minutes later they started screaming, we didn't know because we were like three stories up and in this room with securities keeping everybody away from us. The reviews have been "the world's greatest band". We thought they hated us but they were mesmerized [Interview with Axl Rose, December 1987]

Guns arrived in the UK with fellow LA sleaze rockers Faster Pussycat as support act. I travelled up to cold and rainy Manchester for the opening night at the Apollo. Only a thousand people showed up. The balcony was completely empty. But it didn't matter. Kicking off with It's So Easy, GN'R played a brilliant set, and afterwards they were in buoyant mood backstage. Axl showed me a souvenir given to him by a fan who'd made the long journey down from Scotland for the gig. It was a ticket for a show that never was: Aerosmith plus Guns N' Roses at the Edinburgh Playhouse [20 Years of Appetite, Classic Rock Magazine, July 2007]
