Although the days of crazy post-show parties was in the past anyway, Slash revealed that Guns N’ Roses‘ Covid protocols on the road only strengthened the band’s musical connection. Ultimate Classic Rock ran a bit of Slash’s chat with Britain’s Daily Star, in which the guitarist remembered, “Onstage it was incredible — the audience had this crazy energy. The effect on the group as a whole was super positive. . . No after-parties, no record execs, no celebrations — and frankly it showed onstage. The crisis restored our communal passion for music. We’ve never enjoyed playing music so much.”

Slash went on to talk about the touring party’s safety regiment: “All of our entourage wore masks; there was never any contact with the outside world. No one was invited to the concerts; there were no after-parties. We would go straight from the hotel to the venue and back to the hotel until it was time to travel to the next town. If you told me that in the ’80s, I wouldn’t have believed you. . . I think it was a little glimpse of what’s to come. I think we are going to have to live with the virus and adapt to it.”
