Bumblefoot


Hi Ron… it’s really great to have you on Grande Rock! You new album, “Little Brother is Watching” is captivating indeed… well-done!
 
R: Thank you so much!
 
 
I guess due to your many music collaborations and to Guns n Roses you pushed your own releases a bit back… Is this why there’s that 7-year hiatus between the new album and “Abnormal” or not?
 

Bumblefoot - Little Brother is Watching

After a 6-year hiatus and being a member on Gun n’ Roses, the guitar virtuoso Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal returns with his tenth album as Bumblefoot. This is his second release after he joined GnR, as his previous album “Abnormal” was released in the same year with “Chinese Democracy”. The eccentric, talented and creative musician, multi-instrumentalist and producer Ron throws in the idea that apart from the “big brother”, the “little brother” is also watching us all no matter where we are… it’s like a race for “who is watching whom”! The lyrics that have a humorous approach deal with life in the digital age and beyond.
