Guitar shredder Ron Thal of the New York City-based alternative-rap-metal project BUMBLEFOOT has been asked to join GUNS N' ROSES as the replacement for Buckethead, according to a posting at www.bumblefoot.com. "Since, the rumors are already flyin', I might as well say," Ron writes on the site. "I was asked to join GUNS N' ROSES two months ago. It's not definitely happenin', we're just feelin' it out. When decisions have been made, I'll let y'all know."

Ron Thal started as a solo artist on Shrapnel/Roadrunner Records with the instrumental guitar-oriented CD "The Adventures Of Bumblefoot" in May 1995 (voted one of the Best Newcomers in Young Guitar magazine's Readers' Poll in January 1996) and the vocal "Hermit" CD in January 1997. Through his own production company, Hermit Inc., Thal (a.k.a. Bumblefoot) has released his own music, and has worked as a producer, songwriter, and hired musician. Credits include CNN, MTV, Jessica Simpson, Cher, LeAnn Rimes, and many more.

That jackass wishes he had half the talent of Buckethead. I saw Buckethead play with Primus at
Ozzfest 99 and he was amazing. Fukk Axl Rose he is a selfish prikk and he needs to shoot up and
die!!!!!!!

Hey - there's a lot of anger towards someone that you don't even know...they're just people like you and me. Maybe you could find something to say with some substance. It would make these message boards much more interesting.

Axl is a fake prikk. He is solely the responsible person that broke up the real GNR in the first place.

butt out before you open your mouth. Casper the ghostwriter.

Hey, KMADD as Axl would love to say to you... {But since he's not here and can't, I'll say it on his behalf...}"Suck my F@?kin' d***!" :)
But being that I'm a woman, you can 'eat me' instead... :)
So Don't Damn me...when I speak a piece of my mind! :)
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha :)
You just made my point, 'young one' - ever thought of taking anger management classes? That was a very smart comment, you posted. You must be so proud of yourself...Sure showed me... It made this message board so much more...Interesting...You must stay awake a lot at night with such, such...genious thoughts running through your, under-inflated mind... :)
Or perhaps maybe if you weren't a parasite, or a kiss a$$ sycophant, you'd have a life, other than b****ing about someone that you don't even f@?kin' know...

I always liked Casper... :) So cute, so loveable, innocent, loving little Casper... :)

Guess what I'm doing now... :)
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

Love,
