Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal talked about the ongoing GN’R reunion and why he had no desire to be part of it, telling LA Weekly:
“If I was there, it wouldn’t be a reunion.
“I would be the thing stopping it from being a reunion, and I don’t want to be that. I would be the fly in the soup.
“Did I think they were gonna call? No. The way things ended with us, nobody was going to be calling anybody, unfortunately.”
Asked if he attended any of the reunion shows, Bumblefoot replied:
“It would just be too strange. For so many reasons it would be just awkward.
“One, because we didn’t end with hugs and handshakes and all of that.
“Two, what am I gonna do? Stand in the audience and have people around me go, ‘Hey, weren’t you in the band?’
“The whole thing is just weird and too awkward. They’re doing better than ever, and if you look at it, they’re happy, I’m happy, everybody’s doing fine and that’s how it should be.”
