Bumblefoot Knew About Guns N' Roses Reunion


(Classic Rock) Former Guns N' Roses guitarist Ron 'Bumblefoot' Thal knew that Slash and Duff McKagan were returning to the band when he decided to quit. But even that didn't keep him from making the decision to move on - because he believed the time was right.

Asked if he knew about the reunion, he tells Loudwire: "Yeah, I did." But he hasn't seen the latest lineup perform. "That would just be weird," he says. "It's like going to watch your ex-girlfriend get married. I moved on, they moved on, I hope everybody's happy, that's all."

In 2012 Bumblefoot brought young fan Chloe Paris to a rehearsal, where she sang with the band. He recalls: "The things I remember the most was when something bad happened and it turned into something good.

"There was a sweet girl, and all the kids in school picked on her. I brought her into a rehearsal and she was a big fan of the song Catcher In The Rye. She's pretty much the only other person who sang with Guns N' Roses." Read more and watch the full video clip here.
