Ron ‘Bumblefoot’ Thal is an award-winning vocalist, songwriter, producer, and world-renowned guitar virtuoso, with over 25 years of releasing music, playing international festivals and headlining tours, and gracing magazine covers as a solo artist.
Bumblefoot is lead singer and guitarist of the legendary progressive rock band Original Asia (featuring Geoff Downes, Carl Palmer, and Billy Sherwood), and guitarist of progressive rock band Sons Of Apollo (featuring Mike Portnoy, Billy Sheehan, Derek Sherinian, and Jeff Scott Soto). Formerly a member of rock groups Art Of Anarchy (2011 – 2017, including STP/Velvet Revolver vocalist Scott Weiland, Creed vocalist Scott Stapp and Disturbed bassist John Moyer) and Guns N’ Roses (2006 – 2014), Bumblefoot toured sold-out shows all over the world, headlining festivals with crowds up to 150,000. Bumblefoot’s unique ‘fretless guitar’ can be heard throughout Guns N’ Roses’ 2008 Chinese Democracy album.
Bumblefoot’s most recent “Little Brother Is Watching” album is an eccentric, upbeat collection of epic, modern rock with haunting melodies, huge choruses and witty lyrics about life in the digital age and beyond. The album was composed, produced, recorded, mixed and mastered by Bumblefoot at his own studio, and includes a crowd of 100 fans stomping, chanting and singing backing vocals recorded at a listening party in New York. The album peaked at #4 on Amazon.com
Rock charts globally. The album is released on David Ellefson’s ( Megadeth bassist) EMP Record Label, now available in retail
on CD and vinyl.
Bumblefoot is also an accomplished composer whose music is often heard in TV, film and video games, including the theme
song to VH1’s “That Metal Show”.
Bumblefoot has worked as an adjunct Professor at SUNY Purchase College teaching music production, works with U.S. Embassies around the world on cross-cultural music programs, has his own line of award-winning hot sauces, and works with dozens of international charities visiting orphanages and children’s hospitals around the world with guitar in hand.
