Back in 2019, Love you Told AL.com on the camaraderie between all the hard rock bands in the 1980s: “We were all friends. We were all like incest, SHOTGUNS, GUNS N’ ROSES. GUNS N’ ROSES basically got a record just when we were putting FASTER together, so they helped us tons so we could start our shit. I was friends with [L.A. GUNS guitarist] Tracii Pistols [GN’R drummer] Steven Adler. So it was all just a crucible.
“I remember going to see GUNS N’ ROSES‘ first show, and it’s so funny too because originally when we were putting FASTER with Mick Cripps (who would soon join SHOTGUNS) and we responded to an ad in the Music connection for a ‘very available glam guitarist’, and it was fucking slash. We went to see him at the first GN’R show that he did it afterwards Tracii [left GN’R]. I thought he was awesome. Mike said, ‘He looks stupid.’ [Laughs] I was like, ‘Whatever.’ And then I sold slash his fucking hat. … He said he stole it. He’s so shitty. I gave him. [Laughs] But he can say he stole it; it’s harder. But we’ve been friends ever since.”
