Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal speaks out about Gn’R gossip.


Ron & Axl = Happy campers?


Like usual, there are always rumors, gossip and opinion floating around. Kind of like tumbleweeds in Texas. Sometimes, those tumbleweeds are full of facts. Like when Metal Sludge first reported and broke the news that DJ Ashba was in FACT, going to be the new guitarist in Guns n’ Roses. We ran the story, and even got contacted by "folks" within the group to REMOVE it at once. We politely declined, and a week later DJ was in. Lol.

We also reported last month on a tumbleweed telling us that Doc McGhee was going to be fired from Gn’R. And a few days later, Axl Rose himself tweeted and confirmed this. :-)

But sometimes these tumbleweeds are full of anger, bitterness and evil. Or so some say.

Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal says the recent Gn’R rumors HERE are just that.

On Thursday 24th February 2011, said:

OK, here’s the deal with all the GNR rumors. Some trolls tried to get attention by starting rumors, as they had seen others get. I called a few out on it personally, smacked ‘em down and their panties are still all bunched up over it, so they’ve been going to different GNR fansites, they create an account with an IP scrambler, post these fake stories, and then disappear. They’re 1) trying to get me back for bruising their ego, 2) they’re trying to mindfuck the *real* GNR fans and make them lose faith in the band and bandmembers they’ve gotten to know over the years, 3) they saw someone else get a lot of attention in a similar scenario recently, and want some attention themselves, from fans, and from me.

All they want to do is hurt the fans and the band. All the credible GNR fansites see it and have been deleting the silly posts by their own choice. Don’t buy into it. Don’t stand for it. And don’t believe a WORD of it. If the people spreading this would like to come forward and show who they are, I’d be happy to bring them into a courtroom with a libel suit, and if they can prove their statements to be true I’ll cover all costs and whatever else. But that wouldn’t happen because every word of it is made up and that’s why they don’t stick around and remain in hiding.

To any news sites that spread the rumors without fact-checking, that’ll post anything any sociopath makes up and give it a platform, you need to do better.

To sum it up, I have a life, you have a life, these particular trolls don’t – they’re just trying to tear us both down, because they’re bitter.

"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing." (Edmund Burke) Don’t give these people power, and don’t do nothing. Find out who they are, and hold them personally accountable for fucking with you and the band.

OK, back to making music, loving my band, my family, the fans, and looking forward to seeing you all as soon as possible. :)


Ron tweeted the above earlier today right HERE

At last check no comments from Axl, DJ, Dizzy or anyone else in the band.

Hey Ron, who ever smelt it, dealt it! ;-)
