Former Guns N’ Roses guitarist Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal says that he has not spoken to singer Axl Rose since he left the group but he is happy to see the band’s reunion with Axl, guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan going well, though he wishes that the split would have been smoother on a personal level between the two. Ron has moved on since leaving the group in 2014 and is now part of the supergroup Art Of Anarchy.
Yesterday I mentioned how Live Nation would be selling $20 tickets to over 1000 shows on 50 tours starting May 1st. Over 1,000,000 tickets will be available. Now they’ve announced a New York City concert on that day to highlight the promotion; Foreigner, The Roots, Daughtry, and Nickelback will be among the bands taking part.
Speculation is growing that Radiohead could be about to mark the 20th anniversary of their classic 1997 album OK Computer. Posters have been spotted in London, Amsterdam, Berlin, Los Angeles, New York, and other cities that reference the band’s lyrics for the album track “Fitter Happier”. OK Computer was Radiohead’s third album, and spawned the singles Paranoid Android, Karma Police, No Surprises, Airbag and Lucky.
