Wow! What an interview with guitar wizard, Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal. I caught up with him in Niagara Falls, NY, on a recent stop with David Ellefson on his Basstory tour. Bumble was nice enough to sit in my car for a while and tell me about lots of stuff, including...
*The tour with David
*How Sons of Apollo started and the past year touring with the band
*The making of the debut album
*Guitar players he really admires
*Writing for SOA vs. solo stuff
*What he wants the new SOA to sound like and when they'll hit the studio
*Trying out for other bands
*Carl Palmer's drum camp he's involved with near the end of 2019
*Bands that influenced him as a kid
*Guitar parts he can't figure out
*What kind of kid he was
*A message for the GNR fans on the 10th anniversary of Chinese Democracy
