There are times when running this site seems more like a job and not nearly as much fun as I anticipated when I first set out to make a site dedicated to all things Rock Band. Than there are times like this that make EVERYTHING worth while! I had a chance last week to interview future Rock Band Network best selling artist Ron ‘Bumblefoot’ Thal, who is the current guitarist for Guns ‘N’ Roses. While this will be his first song on the Rock Band Network, if you have played every song on guitar in Rock Band 2, you’ve played song of his contributions on “Shackler’s Revenge,” as well as the rest of his stuff on the “Chinese Democracy” album DLC.
He’s about ready to release his first single, “Guitars Suck,” and if you have been looking for a challenging song to FC, this will be it. In my opinion, most difficult songs that come out for Rock Band aren’t as fun to listen to, but “Guitars Suck” is an awesome song that, while most of us won’t be able to complete it on Expert Guitar, is an amazing song. There’s a reason he replaced Buckethead in Guns ‘N’ Roses!
Anyway, enough about that. Check out the audio interview I had with him directly below, and stick around to check out a preview of his song “Guitars Suck,” coming soon to the Rock Band Network, as well as a gallery of images from his current worldwide tour with Guns ‘N’ Roses!
Thank you very much, Ron!!! For more info about Bumblefoot, check out his official site and his label’s site, Myspace, Twitter, and Facebook. His RBN debut, “Guitars Suck,” is currently in play testing in the RBN here, and look for his second song “Real” shortly!
Here’s a video of Ron in action…
HUGE thanks to Trav and the boys from Freen in Green who helped make this possible!!!
