Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal, is an American guitarist, songwriter, recording artist and producer that adopted his nickname from a bacterial infection found in poultry & rabbits. The name went from being just the name of an album, to the name of a record label, to a band name, to eventually his name as a solo artist. He was one of two lead guitarists in Guns N’ Roses from 2006 until 2014 and performed on their sixth studio album Chinese Democracy. Since the early 90s, he has released 10 CDs and a live DVD. He has appeared as a guest performer on other albums and on numerous compilation CD’s. He has been featured in several foreign guitar magazines, as well as the subject of many print, radio and web interviews. Over the past twenty years, he has also worked with numerous bands and artists as producer, engineer, writer, arranger, and performer. He also writes TV jingles, theme songs, and background music.
In 2011, Thal formed a band with John Moyer of Disturbed, Jon Votta & Vince Votta called Art Of Anarchy. Scott Weiland provided vocals for the debut album, but later distanced himself from the project, stating he was ‘never in the band’. Former Creed singer Scott Stapp joined the band as lead singer in 2016. The second studio album, titled The Madness was released in 2017.
In August 2017, he joined a progressive metal supergroup named Sons Of Apollo with bassist Billy Sheehan, keyboardist Derek Sherinian, vocalist Jeff Scott Soto and drummer Mike Portnoy.
We are beyond stoked to have him come play our Saloon!!!
