Bumblefoot Threw Fits Over Guns N' Roses Lateness

(Classic Rock) Guns N' Roses guitarist Bumblefoot used to find himself reduced to throwing fits of frustration at the band's poor timekeeping. Axl Rose and co went through a period of keeping crowds waiting for several hours, sometimes taking to the stage after they'd been due to finish.

The behavior split fans some were upset over ruined schedules while others believed it was just another aspect of rock'n'roll. Bumblefoot can see both perspectives, but says he's just glad it's all in the past.

He tells Totally Driven: "That hasn't happened for a long time. but it did for a long time. I absolutely had the hardest time out of anybody in the band with that stuff.

"There's been times when I walked off stage and just started throwing a fit on the side," he said. "I'm always in touch with one very simple thing: you make music to make people happy. Anything that takes away from that or undoes that or creates the opposite of that is completely just anti why you're doing what you're doing." more on this story
