KOMMENTAR:

Lyden er ikke så god her, men bandet kan næsten lige høres.

Tim Collins: “When Guns N’ Roses joined us, we’d already been out [on tour] with other bands—White Lion, Dokken. When Guns ca me along, we noticed the difference immediately. They had a hit single [with ‘Sweet Child’]. They were on MTV much more than we were. Suddenly Steven Tyler wanted to meet them. But we had this major segregation strategy going. I’d lie to Steven: ‘Oh, Guns? Sorry—they left the hall already. You’ll see them in Cleveland.’

“Meanwhile, they were incredible! Guns N’ Roses now had the same intensity that Aerosmith had back in 1975, a real rock-and-roll band—big-time.”

Tim Collins: “I’d stand there at the side of the stage, with Joe Perry and Brad Whitford, and we’d watch Slash and Izzy giving each other these looks of semi-disbelief that they were being observed, and maybe judged, by their old heroes. “Believe me, it made both bands play much better.”
