The one GNR song Marsili can remember sounding strong was the explosive "Welcome to the Jungle." That's the same tune that won over Shaw High School student Lori Wilson Driver, a week earlier during the band's Nov. 3 Mobile Municipal Arena set. "And I thought, 'That's like an anthem for life,'" Driver says.

Now a Gulf Shores resident, Driver still listens to "Welcome to the Jungle" on the regular. The song is on the playlist she listens to while training for half marathons. During her time in Charlotte working a particularly challenging management job, she'd listen to the song driving to work, "because I felt like I was heading into a jungle every day." At GNR's '87 Mobile show, Driver wore an outfit that included white studded cowgirl boots and acid-wash denim skirt.

"I probably used a can of White Rain before I left the house because my bangs were teased up to the top of the Mobile Civic Center," she says. "We all had big hair. That was the order of the day." At the concert, she slipped on the 10,000-capacity arena's stairs, bruising her tailbone. Her date bought her a Motley Crue tee that curiously omits Mobile from the tour dates listed on the shirt's back. She recalls the venue was full of cigarette smoke and many fans were drinking from booze bottles they'd smuggled in. "There was no security back then. Someone might have looked at you but you didn't go through an X-ray or any kind of metal detector."
