Axl Rose (vocals), Izzy Stradlin (rhythm guitarist), Slash (lead guitarist), Duff McKagan (bass), Dizzy Reed (keyboards) and Matt Sorum (drums).

In Sacramento, in early April, someone in the audience threw a bottle of Jack and hit Duff square in the head, knocking him unconscious. That was so ridiculous, not to mention dangerous. Anytime people throw shot onstage to get a reaction - I assume because rock bands seem larger than life - is just insane. I'm never sure what they're after when they throw something that can do actual bodily har, We'd done about ninety minutes at that point, but that was the end of the show because Duff was really hurt. I volunteered to be the one to tell the audience that they'd fucked up. They cheered when I came back onstage, but they weren't happy about what I had to say. "That bottle of piss knocked Duff unconscious and now he's on his way to the hospital," I said, "There is no way that we're coming back out. The show is over. Please leave peacefully and don't fuck with anyone. Don't fuck with the building [Slash's autobiography, "Slash", 2007, p. 368-369]
Onstage in Sacramento on April 3, a bottle came flying out of the top tier. I saw it out of the corner of my eye. It hit Matt's floor tom and careened off. Then everything went black [Duff's autobiography, "It's So Easy", 2011, p. 217]
