A message from Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal regarding his comments in the i heart guitar interview:
Regarding the end of the interview about GN'R touring, it came off in the printed transcription to sound like I was citing the economy like some lame excuse...
"It’s just that when it comes to battling the economy ... there are so many variables that could make it not work."
I wasn't saying the sole reason GN'R hadn't toured was due to the economy, or the economy only - folks gotta read the whole sentence, up to where it ends with a period.
You know, the period. As in "I'm complaining about Ron's interview because I have my period."
There are "many variables that could make it not work."
In other words, as I've been telling everyone for years, I don't give any specific info about GN'R's business in my own personal interviews.
Don't ask Azoff about my guitar parts, don't ask me about GN'R's business.
This whole charade is pretty sad, and I actually feel bad for Ron who is a nice guy and a talented musician.
