Calin Pacatius of Radio Romania Timisoara conducted an interview with Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal prior to the former GUNS N’ ROSES and current SONS OF APOLLO guitarist’s November 23 solo concert at Reflektor in Timisoara, Romania.
On his contributions to GUNS N’ ROSES‘ 2008 album, “Chinese Democracy”:
Ron: “The fretless guitar and some of the melodies and things like that… Everybody contributed so much. There’s so many people. I don’t think there’s ever been an album, I don’t even want to say just rock music, but in music, in recorded music, that had so many people contributing from such a vast array of time and styles and everything to create this final masterpiece.
“It really is. If you really break down everything that is going on in that record, there is so much. It’s such a fragile balance of so many parts that works just right. Caram Costanzo, the producer, the guy that I spent 14 hours a day with, laying [down] guitar parts, [he’s] fantastic.”
