About Pitman:

This was posted on a site on the band Lusk (in which Pitman was a member) on December 20, 1999:

Chris Pitman is now working for Axl Rose, doing engineering/writing work on the new GUNS 'N ROSES album.

https://web.archive.org/web/20010503180144/http://www.nmc.siu.edu/~beckham/lusk/news.html

It seems Pitman first joined as a studio engineer and then was "upgraded" to member of the band, and this probably happened a little prior the 2001 shows, because his name hadn't appeared in any press reports before.

--------

In regards to when Brain joined:

I don't think the Buckethead quote ("in the brain") refers to Brain. It sounds more likely a weirdly worded way to say that Buckethead joined on the spot.

Thank you!

I changed the text to reflect the ambigiuity of Bucket's comment.

From Steven's old official fansite, entry for October 15, 2000:
October 15th

Steven stopped by the Whiskey in Hollywood on Thursday night to catch Slash's Snakepit. Unfortunately, what could have been their first substantial reunion in years, turned sour.  It seemed as though Slash was just plain disinterested to see his old friend. After some chitchat, Stevie asked the guitarist what songs they were planning to do, absolutely willing to jam on anything if asked.  It was clear that no such request would be posed. During the conversation, Steven noticed that his girlfriend wasn't being allowed into the VIP area, and asked Slash if he could let her in.  Slash stated something to the effect of "no". Steven was genuinely hurt and offended that his old friend would show him such a lack of consideration.. He planted a firm middle finger in front of Slash and stormed off.  This was an incident between old friends, nothing more, and hopefully these two can just chill and hang out sometime! Ironically, Slash has spoken affectionately of Steven in recent interviews, and has said that the two keep in touch. Unfortunately, they do not - much to Steven's regret. We ended up next door at the CatClub where Stevie ran in to his old buddy Chris Weber, former GNR collaborator on such classics as "Anything Goes" and "Back Off Bitch". Chris is a youthful looking man who's own band, U.P.O., is quickly reaching Gold sales status of their debut CD, "No Pleasentries".  They enthusiastically caught up with each other and reminisced about old times. While in the club, at one point Stevie was trying to make his way across the crowded dance floor where the patrons were grooving it up to "Paradise City". One woman in particular was so into the song as she danced, that she wouldn't even budge to let Stevie through! If only she knew! Stevie and his brother Jamie, Chris Weber, Taylor, Kent and assorted other friends ended up at the Rainbow where we stayed until well past closing. Another wacky night in Hollywood!
