Bumblefoot Had A Big Battle of Views With Guns N' Roses

(Rock News Desk) Ron Bumblefoot Thal joined Guns N' Roses just a month before the band headed out on tour after spending over a year locked in a "big battle of views" with Axl Rose and co. But the guitarist says he's been delighted with the half-decade he's spent in GnR even though the first few shows were stressful because he didn't know the band's new songs.

Bumblefoot tells Gibson: "Joe Satriani landed me the gig. He shot me an email and said they were looking for somebody and he'd recommended me, so if someone got in touch it wasn't an odd joke.

By the time both parties agreed to a trial there were only a few weeks remaining before GnR headed out on their 2006 world tour. Bumblefoot says: "After a big battle of views we decided to give it a shot. We hadn't spoken for about a year and a half. We got together maybe seven times, then toured for a year and a half. more on this story
