Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal (ex-Guns N' Roses)
Bumblefoot is an award-winning vocalist, songwriter, producer and world-renowned guitar virtuoso, with over 20 years of releasing music, playing international festivals and headlining tours, and gracing magazine covers as a solo artist. As lead guitarist of "Guns N' Roses" (2006 – 2014) Bumblefoot toured sold-out shows all over the world, headlining festivals with crowds up to 150,000. Bumblefoot's unique 'fretless guitar' can be heard throughout GNR's 2008 "Chinese Democracy" album.
Bumblefoot's recent "Little Brother Is Watching" album is an eccentric, upbeat collection of epic, modern rock with haunting melodies, huge choruses and witty lyrics about life in the digital age and beyond. The album was composed, produced, recorded, mixed and mastered by Bumblefoot at his own studio, and includes a crowd of 100 fans stomping, chanting and singing backing vocals recorded at a listening party in New York. The album peaked at #4 on Amazon.com Rock charts globally.
Bumblefoot is the current guitarist of the Prog Super-band "Sons Of Apollo" featuring "Mike Portnoy" (ex-Dream Theater, ex-The Winery Dogs, Transatlantic), "Derek Sherinian" (ex-Dream Theater), "Billy Sheehan" (The Winery Dogs, Mr Big, David Lee Roth) and "Jeff Scott Soto" (ex-Journey, ex-Yngwie J. Malmsteen's Rising Force). Their debut album, "Psychotic Symphony", is due for release on October 20 via Inside Out Music/Sony, and now they are pleased to reveal their first track titled “Signs of the Time.” Listen now here: https://youtu.be/TLVWkqnN3Ck
Bumblefoot's other collaboration include rock group "Art Of Anarchy" (featuring Creed's vocalist "Scott Stapp" and Disturbed's bassist "John Moyer") and "Fragile Mortals" (featuring "DMC" from iconic rap group Run DMC and ex-Exodus vocalist "Rob Dukes").
Bumblefoot is also an accomplished composer whose music is often heard in TV, film and video games, including the theme song to VH1's "That Metal Show". Bumblefoot has worked as an adjunct Professor at SUNY Purchase College teaching music production, works with U.S. Embassies around the world on cross-cultural music programs, has his own line of award-winning hot sauces (you can buy from Amazon: goo.gl/vi9uvC), and works with dozens of international charities visiting orphanages and children's hospitals around the world with guitar in hand.
