Guitarist and recording artist Ron Thal, a member of the School of Arts Conservatory of Music studio production faculty, has joined Guns Nâ€™ Roses on their 2006 tour in Europe and the U.S.
Known as Bumblefoot, Ron Thal is a recording artist from New York City who has released seven albums since 1995 as lead singer/guitarist. His music is hard rock, bordering on experimental and quirky. He can be heard in the Spanish guitar solos of Jessica Simpsonâ€™s â€œIrresistibleâ€ dance mix, the punky guitar riff of Spike TVâ€™s MXC theme song, in the background of MTVâ€™s The Osbournes and The Real World, and much more.
He works out of his studio in Princeton, NJ where he collaborates with artists as a songwriter/producer and with publishing companies, video games and TV shows.
