Ace Frehley was to open for Alice Cooper but was in rehab and could not be found. Alice Cooper saw GNR in Los Angeles at the Whiskey a Go-Go and signed them as his opening act. The Guns N Roses/ Alice Cooper show was in the fall of 1987. Guns and Roses also opened for Aerosmith at the Show Me Center in the summer of 1988. I was at both those shows and LOADED!
Thats right! I have more photos from the Alice/GNR show. (You can see them all at www.myspace.com/timexx also photos of Motley Crue at SMC)
I still have the show poster and ticket stub from the Aerosmith/GNR show.
Faster ******** was also on the show to play with Alice, but they refused to play if GNR was on the bill. Seems Izzy and Slash beat up Faster ********'s drummer and left him ducked tape in a closet with a sign that said GNR was here. He was there for over three hours before he was found. So they would not play if Guns was on the show.
I remember the church protesters standing outside the SMC at this show. What fun that was!
