GUNS N' ROSES guitarist Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal will take part in this year's Rock Against Diabetes event by forming an all-star band of some of the music world's best to perform at the concert. The group's setlist will comprise of a selection of hits from each bandmember as well as a selection of cover hits that are still to be determined.
"I want to help bring attention, awareness, and hopefully get some people thinking about what they can do to prevent diabetes, or how they can lend a hand to someone living with it," explains Thal when asked why he took the initiative to support the event. "I have been reaching out to musicians to form a group that hasn't ever played together before, something very special just for this one night. This is an important event, and it's a privilege to be able to participate."
The second annual Rock Against Diabetes event will be held on August 23 in Las Vegas, at the Deep Rock Drive venue. Other acts confirmed to appear include Y&T, L.A. GUNS, FASTER PUSSYCAT and BANG TANGO.
