GUNS N' ROSES Guitarist BUMBLEFOOT Is Hoping For A Tour

Nightwatcher's House Of Rock recently conducted an interview with GUNS N' ROSES guitarist Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal. An excerpt from the chat follows below.

Nightwatcher's House Of Rock: Now that "Chinese Democracy" has been released, are you relieved that at last you don't have to continually answer the question, "When is the album coming out?"

Thal: No, because now everyone's saying, "When's the next album coming out?" (Laughs)

Nightwatcher's House Of Rock: So... when's the next GUNS album coming out?

Thal: There ya go. I think it was about two days before people starting coming up and asking me, "So, when's the next album coming out?" Man, give us a chance. (Laughs)

Nightwatcher's House Of Rock: Any plans yet for touring that you're aware of?

Thal: Right now nothing is confirmed. Nothing is definite. If pieces fall into
place, it could happen. That's the most political way I can say I know nothing. (Laughs) In other words, it could happen, I hope it happens, maybe it'll happen, I'd like for it to happen. I know a lot of other people who would like for it to happen, and if everything works out, it will happen. But there are a lot of variables involved, down to every little thing to making sure that all the pieces are in place so that we can do this the right way.

Nightwatcher's House Of Rock: That's a very skillful way of dodging that question, I'm impressed....

Thal: Thank you. I'm getting good at this. I think I'm going to run for mayor soon. I've had years of practice now. (Laughs)

Nightwatcher's House Of Rock: What is the one thing that people would be surprised to know about Axl?

Thal: I don't know. I find that people that don't know him are the ones that have all these crazy ideas about him. The people that do know him have a lot of good things to say about him. He's got some really nice friends who have become my friends. I've crossed the line from people that don't know him to one who does, and I don't know what people know or don't know anymore. I do know that there's a lot of wrong information about him out there. It kind of bums me out to see and read things that I know are totally bullshit.
