Couple days ago we reported that guitarist DJ Ashba left GUNS N’ ROSES, but according to journalist Gary Graff, a “confirmed source” with GUNS N’ ROSES has clarified the status of Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal, saying that the guitarist is indeed out of the band, and has been for some time.
The source tells Graff: “Bumblefoot quit last year. I don’t understand why he continues to be evasive on his status with the band — he quit in South America. He told Axl he was done and Vegas would be his last run with the band.”
When Bumblefoot was asked in a recent interview if he had also left GUNS N’ ROSES, he responded: “That is the thing I am not to elaborate on. I think there’s enough clues out there for you to figure out what I’m up to now.”
