Transcription of the Guns N' Roses part:

Better live
Guns N' Roses managed to do the impossible for a rough-hewn metal act - it sounded better live than on vinyl. And singer W. Axl Rose is a completely commending presence on stage.

The band has mature songwriting and arranging ideas and played with dynamics under an appealing rough, explosive edge. far superior to Motley Crue and their ilk, Guns N' Roses deserves to be tough metal's next star.

[Before Hair Of The Dog] Last night we got to see, in my opinion, one of the world's more underrated rock n' roll bands. And, you know, we're getting a lot of comparisons to, like, Aerosmith and shit, but if it wasn't for Dan McCafferty and Nazareth I wouldn't be singing. I used to lock myself in the bathroom and try to hit those notes in Love Hurts, you know? And the only way I was able to do that was by practicing with Unleashed in the East. So, I had to sing Judas Priest just so I could sing Nazareth - I don't understand that exactly. Anyway, they were celebrating their 20th anniversary, and of all of the bands we've met so far I think they had to be the fucking coolest to have towards us. We'll dedicate this to their 20 years and hope that we can last half as long.

Richard Duguay, a punk friend of Duff, and who had met the band when they came to Canada in 1987 to support the Cult, would invite the band over for barbeque:

And then we met up with them again. [...] When they were opening for Maiden across Canada, I mean, they were, it was just before Sweet Child came out. And so, you know, they had the buzz and everything. And, I think they were playing a Monday night, got in town on a Sunday, if memory serves and back then in Winnipeg, you couldn't buy alcohol at all on a Sunday. which didn't go over well with those guys, of course. This was '87 or no '88, I think. So anyway, we had them all. Me and my ex-wife invited them over for a barbecue and we had a bunch of drinks. We had a bunch of alcohol and stuff like that. So I kind of got to know them. You know, I wouldn't say me and Slash were good friends or friends even. [...] So I got to know them a little bit and you know, when a band is on the road, especially when they weren't making any money, you know, really at that point, you know, a home cooked meal is always a good thing, you know.
