GUNS N' ROSES guitarist Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal joined DUFF MCKAGAN'S LOADED, the band led by former GUNS N' ROSES bassist Duff McKagan, on stage last night (Tuesday, May 19) at the Blender Theater at Gramercy in New York City to perform a medley of classics from IGGY POP, JOURNEY, ZZ TO, JUDAS PRIEST, and more.

"Sick", the new full-length album from DUFF MCKAGAN'S LOADED, sold around 1,400 copies in the United States in its first week of release, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The CD landed at position No. 43 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
"Sick" was released in North America on April 7 via Century Media Records. An e-card for the CD, which was produced by Martin Feveyear (PRESIDENTS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, KINGS OF LEON), is available at this location.
Thal released an acoustic EP titled "Barefoot" in December. Bumblefoot's first collection of acoustic recordings, "Barefoot" sees the guitarist re-interpreting his own songs in a stripped-down bare form. It features versions of songs from various Bumblefoot albums performed in an intimate, revealing way unlike they've ever been heard before.
Bumblefoot last year inked a deal with DEEP/BCD Music Group. His latest full-length CD, "Abnormal", was made available in October. The DEEP/BCD Music Group version of the album includes an exclusive bonus track not available anywhere else.
