Totally Driven Radio, the weekly radio podcast heard live every Thursday night from 8 – 11 pm est time on the VOC Nation Radio Network, covers the world of sports and entertainment each week, as well as bringing you celebrity guests interviews.
Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal was a guest this week and discussed a ton of topics…………
Ron discussed how he picked the name Bumblefoot as a song, than a band name, what it actually is, and eventually just became his nickname.
Ron talked about his childhood and how it was “just as fucked up as anybody else” and how he was playing clubs by 13 and how his parents would drive him to his gigs.
He discussed his high school years and dropping out of school at 16, and he would paint the back of denim jackets to make money.
He talked about the old days before the internet where going into records stores, and clubs was just more personal for the music business. He also loves the idea of the internet where you can do it all yourself through various avenues.
He explained he dreamed of the days like now, where you don’t need a music label to put out your music and you can be in total control of it all.
He discussed hooking up with Guns n Roses and how it all happened and it was “very informal and casual”, his first impressions of Axl, being part of a legendary band, how it was very hard for him to deal with shows that Axl would show up 2 hours late and how upset he would get. He also talked about how it doesn’t really bother him when people talk about wanting the “Original Band” to reunite.
He talked about touring with Lita Ford for a summer and how it was a just a “fun, bizarre, crazy tour.”
He talked about his work with Ex TnT singer Tony Harnell and their acoustic rock cd, and shows they do and how when they do shows it also turns into a comedy situation because of him.
Lastly he discussed his love of hot sauces and his own brand of hot sauce and how hot peppers will eventually be used to improve the quality of life for people that are sick as pain relief, mood enhancement, etc.
Bumblefoot joins Totally Driven Radio at the 123 minute mark, and hangs out with the boys for almost 60 minutes to discuss these topics and more.
