GUNS N' ROSES: New Guitarist Found? + Benefit show featuring Ex-GN'R members + VR news
Guitar shredder Ron Thal of the New York City-based alternative-rap-metal project BUMBLEFOOT has been asked to join GUNS N' ROSES as the replacement for Buckethead, according to a posting at www.bumblefoot.com. "Since, the rumors are already flyin', I might as well say," Ron writes on the site. "I was asked to join GUNS N' ROSES two months ago. It's not definitely happenin', we're just feelin' it out. When decisions have been made, I'll let y'all know."

Ron Thal started as a solo artist on Shrapnel/Roadrunner Records with the instrumental guitar-oriented CD "The Adventures Of Bumblefoot" in May 1995 (voted one of the Best Newcomers in Young Guitar magazine's Readers' Poll in January 1996) and the vocal "Hermit" CD in January 1997. Through his own production company, Hermit Inc., Thal (a.k.a. Bumblefoot) has released his own music, and has worked as a producer, songwriter, and hired musician. Credits include CNN, MTV, Jessica Simpson, Cher, LeAnn Rimes, and many more.

A benefit concert has been announced for ENUFF Z'NUFF drummer Ricky Parent, who was recently diagnosed with cancer. The show will take place on Sunday, October 17 at the Metro in Chicago and will feature performances by ENUFF Z'NUFF, D'MOLLS, LOVE HAMMERS and AMERICAN MOTHER LODE. Also set to appear are members of GUNS N' ROSES, POISON and MISSING PERSONS. Doors open at 7pm. Show starts at 8pm. There will also be a rock 'n' roll auction, featuring merchandise donated by several bands and ENUFF Z'NUFF merchandise. All proceeds go to the Ricky Parent Fund.
