From GUNS N’ ROSES to ASIA to SONS OF APOLLO to ART OF ANARCHY to his own BUMBLEFOOT albums, RON 'BUMBLEFOOT' THAL is not only one of the most in-demand rock guitarists of the new millennium, he’s also one of the most innovative, as you will discover when you hear him demonstrating everything from his Vigier double-neck electric (one neck is fretless) to his “portable fret” (a thimble!) to his favorite songs from Boston, Stevie Wonder, Judas Priest, and, of course, CHINESE DEMOCRACY — the epic Guns N’ Roses record that features him on every track. BONUS: You will be deeply moved by Ron’s incredible story of survival, triumph, newfound health after a random motorist in an SUV nearly took everything from him.
Big thanks to Mr. Thal for taking the time to do this deep guitar hang with us ... and thanks as well to Guitar Player magazine and guitarplayer.com for making this episode possible.
And thank YOU for listening to episode 132 of No Guitar Is Safe, “The Guitar Show Where Guitar Heroes Plug In.”
