|In an interview with fashion designer John Varvatos, he mentioned the surprise show GN'R played at his store in New York last February:
"It is very much in the spirit of music in the Bowery and we have had some legendary times," he says. "Guns N' Roses came to the Bowery store to headline New York Fashion Week and they were meant to perform four songs for me. In the end, they played for two and a half hours solid. It was a complete surprise and an amazing show that was talked about for weeks. One of the guys from ZZ Top said it was one of his five greatest moments in music."
