INFO: Sidste show som åbner for The CultThe Cult’s opførsel var så slem på scenen, at de fik forbud mod at spille der igen, hvilket de heller ikke har gjort siden. Læs mere her.

Steven: ”It’s sort of a rock ‘n’ roll ritual for the headlining act to play a practical joke on the opening band on the last night of the tour. I was definitely the people person of the band, so I was always in with the roadies and the bands we toured with. The Cult’s crew, and the band themselves, were all in on this practical joke. In New Orleans, during one of the last songs in our set, the Cult’s crew came out and took my drum set apart piece by piece. First, the cymbal, then the cymbal stand, finally the snare drum, until I was just sitting there looking like a dork. Izzy, Duff, Axl, and Slash were all pointing an laughing at me. The the guys brought the drum set back one piece at a time. Now, usually the opening bands dare not play a practical joke back at the headliners, but we got along so well, we knew it’d be cool. We got naked, with only towels wrapped around our waists. Then the five of us, and a couple of our roadies, walked onstage while the Cult was playing. I had mixed a disgusting concoction of eggs, mustard, and relish in a Styrofoam cup. I walked behind Ian [Astbury] holding it. He didn’t see me, and I motioned to the crowd, “Should I?” holding it over his head, ready to pour, and they were like, “Yeah!”. He turned around and started chasing me all over the stage. He grabbed at me and pulled the towel off of my waist. I was totally naked onstage in front of everyone” [Steven’s biografi, “My Appetite for Destruction”, 2010, s.131-132]
