Guns N' Roses Guitarist Says Bands Don't Need Labels

(Rock AAA) Guns N' Roses guitarist Ron 'Bumblefoot' Thal reckons the balance of power has swung from record labels to artists and there has never been a better time to be a musician and he believes the secret to success lies in offering fans something different.

Thal admits he thinks carefully about the best way to release his own music but he says CD sales have plummeted as technology has advanced.

"I've been preaching that gospel since the 90s labels can't survive without bands, but bands can survive without labels, so why would you want to sell your soul to the entity that needs you more than you need it?," Bumblefoot explained to RockAAA. "Especially now when anyone can have worldwide distribution. You can do it all as simple as with a Cdbaby.com account and a Facebook page. The internet has leveled the playing field, we've all been given the same size gun. The only that separates us now is how well you shoot."
