Slash: In late November, we set off to play South America and found ourselves in the middle of sudden political unrest when we did a show in Caracas, Venezuela. Corrupt law enforcement, abundant drugs, and the world's most dedicated and zealous crowds are the status quo across that continent, so I can't say I am surprised. We were scheduled to play the biggest concert in the history of the country, and since there wasn't a venue large enough to hold the forty-five thousand ticket holders, the promoter created one in a huge parking lot. It was an amazing show, and all went off well....until the next night, when the country experienced a sudden military coup just after we left for Colombia. We made it out, but a few of our crew, and over half our gear, dit not - they got held up in the chaos at the airport [Slash's autobiography, "Slash", 2007, p. 365-366].
