Bumblefoot says that Guns N’ Roses’ Chinese Democracy is a work of art

Guitarist Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal chatted with Romanian Radio Romania Timisoara and talked about Guns N ‘Roses’ Chinese Democracy album.


When asked about the album, Bumblefoot says that many people contributed to his creation and production, which turned it into a work of art.

“It really is a work of art. If you see all parts of the song, it’s a lot. It’s a fragile balance of several parts that worked together and worked well. Caram Costanzo, the producer, stayed 14 hours a day on the record, he’s fantastic. ”

The musician also talked about plans for the Sons Of Apollo, supergroup formed by Jeff Scott Soto, Billy Sheehan, Derek Sherinian and Mike Portnoy.

“There are five different people who together make something unique. You can hear your individuality but together it is something bigger than us … We put us all together in a room and say ‘Ok, make an album’. After a week and a half it was what we did! ”


Sons Of Apollo released their debut album Psychotic Symphony in October 2017 by InsideOut Music.

Bumblefoot joined Guns N ‘Roses in 2006 and played with the band for eight years.
