Bumblefoot Talks Metal Allegiance, Art of Anarchy + Future Solo Plans

Subscribe to Loudwire on

Ron ‘Bumblefoot’ Thal paid us a visit not too long ago, letting us pick his brain about a bunch of different projects he’s working on. In this clip, Bumblefoot talks all about Metal Allegiance’s upcoming ‘Made in Brooklyn’ show, Art of Anarchy and his solo works.

We’re proud to be putting on Metal Allegiance’s Aug. 11 performance at Brooklyn’s St. Vitus. Along with a host of classic rock and metal favorites, the legion of musicians will perform Deep Purple’s iconic live album Made in Japan from front to back. Bumblefoot told us how excited he is for the show and talked up Death Angel’s Mark Osegueda, who will be handling Ian Gillan’s mammoth vocals.

As for Art of Anarchy, the group will continue on despite the passing of vocalist Scott Weiland. To keep the band alive, Creed’s Scott Stapp has stepped to the mic, but as we all know, Stapp has suffered from addiction issues that mirror Weiland’s. Bumblefoot gave us interesting answers when we asked if there was any apprehension in bringing Stapp into the fold and if Bumblefoot considered himself close with Scott Weiland.

It’s been a couple years since Bumblefoot unleashed a new solo record of guitar goodness. The shredder said it’s time to get back into “wacky guitar music” and told us about some upcoming reissues of his solo work.
