Ex-Guns N' Roses Guitarist Bumblefoot Shares His Love For Prog


(Prog) Ron 'Bumblefoot' Thal has spoken of his love of progressive rock, saying: "I'm definitely a prog guy." The former Guns N' Roses guitarist has just wrapped up a run of shows with Platinum Rock All Stars which features him on guitar, Carmine Appice on drums, Rudy Sarzo on bass, The Rascals' Gene Cornish on guitar, Canadian singer Phil Naro and Yes and Asia keyboard player Geoff Downes.

And Bumblefoot's early solo material was, by his own reckoning, progressive as it comes. He says he has moved away from that genre somewhat in recent years, but playing alongside Downes has brought it all back.

He tells TeamRock: "We were doing all music from all our backgrounds. Gene's 72, I'm 47...he didn't know what to expect. Like I'm from Guns N' Roses, he expected me to be spilling Jack Daniel's all over his shoes.

"We all got along and bonded so well. Every single guy in this group that I grew up with and was, to me, really something special. Hopefully we'll do more in 2017.

"And I love King Crimson, Yes, Jethro Tull, ELP. I'm definitely a prog guy." Read more here.
