• This was the last gig the Appetite tour, and according to Duff, Steven & Slash their worst they had played.
• Duff: “Two days after the end of the Aerosmith tour in September 1988, Guns played a strange festival-type gig at the home of the Dallas Cowboys in Texas. INXS headlined and the opening band included the Smithereens, Ziggy Marley and Iggy [Pop]. I was excited to meet [Iggy]. After the show, Iggy and I both ended up at a party in the hotel suite of Michael Hutchence, the vocalist for INXS. I was nervous as hell to be in a room with Iggy, a guy who had inspired a dream that stuck with me for the rest of my life – a dream that cemented the direction of my life in many ways. So I commenced to get really fucked up. Michael Hutchence was already as famous for dating models and appearing in paparazzi photos as for singing “Need You Tonight,” and I think Iggy felt as out of place as I did – so he joined me. We got fucked up together” [Duff’s biography, “It’s So Easy”, 2011, pg. 136-137]
