I will transcript later, but what is most surprising to me with this interview, is the talk about GN'R having toured with Stryper som months before this interview took place, so likely some time in the second half of 1987! I can't remember having heard about GN'R touring with Stryper before. It is not listed at gnrontour.com, it is (I believe) not mentioned in any biographies. I can't find anything about it when googling. But Slash talks about it as if it really happened, and the references to the band's religiosity implies it must have been Stryper. Super-huh!?

Steven says in his biography that they tried to do a tour with Stryper in 1987 but that it fell apart. Maybe they just did a few dates? Stryper was touring their "To Hell with the Devil" record in 1987, across the USA but also in Europe. GN'R was busy with touring with the Cult from August 14, so any dates with Stryper likely happened before that, and close to LA. Stryper did shows in California on February 1, July 31, August 1 and August 2. In late July, early August the band was making the video for WTTJ and were in Los Angeles where Stryper played. So if they really did shows with Stryper, and I find it hard to believe they didn't given Slash's comments, I believe these dates are most likely.

Could the quote in the interview have been just made up by the writer? Apparently, the band did negotiate a tour with Stryper (re: Steven Adler), so maybe the author, Andy Secher, just assumed it had happened when he wrote the interview and just made up an answer from Slash?

YES! I suddenly remembered where I had heard "Any Secher" before:

"And that goes for all of you punks in the press
That want to start shit by printin' lies instead of the things we said
That means you Andy Secher at Hit Parader

Circus Magazine
Mick wall at Kerrang!
Bob Guccione jr. at Spin
What you pissed off 'cause your dad gets more pussy than you?
Fuck you!
Suck my fuckin' dick!
You be rippin' off the fuckin' kids
While they be payin' their hard earned money to read about the bands they want to know about
Printin' lies
Startin' controversy
You want to antagonize me?
Antagonize me motherfucker!
Get in the ring motherfucker!
And I'll kick your bitchy little ass! Punk!!
"

Hoho! Now I think we know exactly why Secher was included in those lyrics. It also means I can't trust any part of this interview, not that there is much of substance there anyway. It would be interesting to know if he actually did an interview with Slash, and just added some fabricated quotes, or if it is entirely made up and/or stolen from other interviews.
