Ron ‘Bumblefoot’ Thal is perhaps best known for appearing on Guns N’ Roses’ Chinese Democracy album and as their subsequent touring guitarist. But guitar lovers will have followed The Adventures Of Bumblefoot since that debut solo album of 1995. 

Ron has since released a host of solo works, most recently Little Brother Is Watching in 2015. He is also a member of prog metal band Sons Of Apollo, with Derek Sherinian and Mike Portnoy formerly of Dream Theater, and Billy Sheehan on bass.
