Guns N' Roses Guitarist Frustrated

(Classic Rock) Guns N' Roses guitarist Ron 'Bumblefoot' Thal has run out patience with the way the band's plans affect his solo career. Axl Rose's outfit tend towards last-minute decisions about touring, while most other acts prepare many months ahead of time. That leaves Bumblefoot faced with either cancelling solo engagements or not making them at all and he says that's got to stop.

He tells Radio Future (via Blabbermouth): "It seems like the running gag was, 'If you want Guns n'Roses to hit the road, all you have to do is book your own tour. They'll book one at the same time and you'll have to cancel yours.'"

Bumblefoot who joined GnR in 2006 and appears on their last album, Chinese Democracy cites the example of a solo tour he'd planned for a previous January and February. GnR made their own plans forcing him to change his but then things changed again and everything was scrapped.

"The changes came at a very big loss," he says. "It also came at a detriment to my name. You book something with agents and promoters, and their biggest concern is you're going to cancel because Guns is going to book something. When you do that, they're going to be very reluctant to book again. I can't let that happen any more." more on this story
