Line-up:
Axl Rose (vocals), Izzy Stradlin (rhythm guitarist), Slash (lead guitarist), Duff McKagan (bass) and Steven Adler (drums).

Quotes:
[...]The next day, Doug [Goldstein] told me that Axl would play for the remaining shows as long as I apologized, onstage, to the audience, for being a junkie. [...] So when the time came, I walked out there, and rather than apologize, I went into some banter about heroin and what it can do to you and how we'd been around the block a few times, how I'd done my time with the seductive beast. It was more amusing than anything else, because I didn't want to bring the audience down at all. I have a way of mumbling when I talk anyway, so I think the mention of "the reality of drugs" and whatever else I said came off as an apology enough. We did a long into to "Mr. Brownstone" as I spoke, so from an audience perspective, it seemed like an impromptu introduction to the song. Whatever it was and wasn't, once Doug told Axl that I did it (because he refused to leave the dressing room until I did), Axl was pleased and the vibe of the whole band turned around as he walked out onstage and we launched into "Mr. Brownstone." Suddenly our camaraderie returned; once those personal issues were handled, we were able to focus on the playing. That second show was fine [...] [Slash's autobiography, p 277-278]
