He guested on "Dummy Up."

However, there is also a photo of Don Preston who was not in the band at the Roxy.

The photos are definitely from at least two nights a few months apart since they show Ruth (not in the "elsewhere" band) and Don Preston (not in the Roxy band). You are probably right that Simmons wasn't playing guitar at the Roxy.

"Dummy Up" is from the Roxy (there is a video excerpt of this in The True Story Of 200 Motels) but "Son Of Orange County" and "More Trouble Every Day" are from "elsewhere" as well as parts of "Penguin In Bondage."

First half of Son Of Orange County is from a different "elsewhere" show, presumably the one from Chicago FZ mentions. It edits to Edinboro halfway through the guitar solo.
