Post Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal OWNS
What an amazing guy he is.

Been talking with him for years, and I finally had the chance to meet him, because he gave me 2 after show passes to the Guns N Roses gig yesterday.

I´ve been a fan for 10+ years now of Ron, own all his records, so it was amazing to hang out with him and talk a lot....he is (as far as I´m concerned) the coolest guy in the music business.

It was a good Saturday!

Tons of emails.

But when I had the record store we did lots of promotion for Ron´s work, such as interviews, reviews, etc. We also sold lots of his albums here in Chile!

An amazing guy!

Bumblefoot is one of my favorite bands and musicians. He's got such a wide variety of styles he's played that it's hard to just give you one video to demonstrate him. But here's a few that I like.

Real: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pWGKzgUCNzs
T-Jonez (I can't find the video): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U9HHbBczgYg
