Probably based on this gig, Beachy, the booker at the club Music Machine, described GN'R as "They're a rock 'n' roll band in the tradition of Aerosmith. . . . They have a huge audience and good tunes and the looks" to the Los Angeles Times.

Raz mentioned how the band came up with Nightrain during the sound check to this show:

While Tex's band sound-checked, Axl, Joe [Raz' brother], and I headed out to the back alley to do some drinking exercises. The guys had recently gotten into cheap wine, Night Train Express, and when Joe returned from a nearby liquor store with two bottles of that crap, Axl cracked open a bottle, took a big swig, smiled like a spectacular sunset over the glimmering ocean, and said, "This stuff is the best. We should do a song about it."

He whipped out his harmonica and tooted, "dant da na-na dant-dah," then proceeded to scribble into his notebook at warp speed. A few minutes later, he sang us his latest musing. I really thought he was kidding around, but no one should ever underestimate the power of cheap wine consumed in an alley. Within the hour, Guns N' Roses was working the song out during their sound check. "Night Rain" made it into the set that very evening, and for a period of time seemed to be their unofficial song
[Raz Cue, "The Days of Guns, & Raz's", 2015, p. 230-231].
