GN’R: ‘Blame The Economy For No Tour’
Guns N’ Roses guitarist Ron ‘Bumblefoot’ Thal has blamed the current economic situation for the band’s failure to tour so far on the back of the Chinese Democracy album.
Talking to I Heart Guitar, he said: “There have been a lot of plans, it’s just that when it comes to battling the economy… there are so many variables that could make it not work. I’m guessing at this point that if something is confirmed, management would let everyone know. So at this point, if I said anything it would be premature, so I should just wait for them to say anything.”
Right now, Bumblefoot is putting together a new band, although he’s not ready to divulge much info.
“It’s going to be heavier than a lot of the other stuff I’ve done. It’s gonna be interesting. A lot of fretless guitar. I’m really looking forward to recording and touring and getting it out there really quick.”
