GUNS N' ROSES Guitarist BUMBLEFOOT To Take Part In Live Stream Event

In celebration of the release of GUNS N' ROSES guitarist Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal's new solo single, "Invisible", he will take part in an exclusive event with Fan Time Live! on May 18 from 8 p.m. to 9 pm EST. The event will be streamed live at and will feature an interview, question-and-answer session with the viewers, and maybe a few musical requests if there's a guitar around...

Thal began digitally releasing a song a month in January, complete with guitar transcriptions, mix stems of the recordings and alternate mixes. Previous releases include "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" (ELTON JOHN), "Strawberry Fields Forever" (THE BEATLES) and "Bernadette" (FOUR TOPS).

"After years on the road, it's great to be back in the studio, putting out these songs every month," says Thal. "'Invisible' is the first original song I've released since 2008. This year I started teaching again, doing a lot of guest playing on albums and at shows, and am hoping to produce some bands as well this year if time allows. Getting back to doing everything I've been missing."

Recent releases featuring Thal's guest guitar work include "Reach Down" (SCARLET HAZE), "Free Yourself" (Ty Tabor of KING'S X), and even a cover of "Frosty The Snowman" with Steve "Lips" Kudrow of ANVIL on vocals.

Thal will be a guest guitarist with the metal band SALEM in Israel on May 6 and with PISSER (featuring GUNS N' ROSES drummer Frank Ferrer) at Bowery Electric in New York City on May 24.
