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

On July 5, 1993, we all rendezvoused in Barcelona for a huge outdoor show at he Olympic Stadium. Axl came in from Venice. I returned from a visit with Linda to the Spanish Island of Ibiza. Slash was already in Barcelona. After Suicidal Tendencies and Brian May had played their opening sets, our manager, Doug Goldstein, sent an oddly formal request to see me and Slash before the show. This was unusual. When Slash and I arrived at the vibe room, one of the tour managers was sitting there waiting for us. The guy was clutching some papers. he put a slim stack of pages down in front of each of us. I leafed through it. It was a legal document giving Axl the right to continue to play as Guns N' Roses even if Slash or I - or both of us - were not part of it. Though it didn't affect our status as shareholders in the operation, Axl and Axl alone would control the name if we signed this agreement. "What the fuck?" I said. "Look, man," the tour manager said. "The truth is, you guys are not in good shape - you know that yourselves. If one of you dies, nobody wants to have to spend years in court battling your families or whatever." That's not what it said, however. There was nothing about death in these documents. With the crowd outside already getting restless, the guy then implied Axl wouldn't go onstage that night unless we signed the documents [Duff's autobiography, "It's So Easy", 2011, p. 221-222]
