BANGKOK — He joined Guns N’ Roses in early 2006 as the replacement for Brian “Buckethead” Carroll, during which time he was known to break out in The Pink Panther anthem during shows.

Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal, lead guitarist of Guns N’ Roses from 2006 to 2014, will bring his fretless doubleneck electric guitar to Whiteline.


The surge of testosterone won’t end there, as the renowned solo artist will be joined by a spectrum of rock, from Degaruda’s hard stuff to still-definitely-rocking The Ginkz, and finally a gentle-rocking acoustic set by John Will Sail.


Tickets for the event are 400 baht. Doors will open at 7pm on Feb. 12 at Whiteline on Silom Soi 8.

Whiteline is one stop for Bumblefoot, who is also visiting other parts of Thailand: Papa Rock in Chiang Mai on Feb. 5, Siam Country Club in Pattaya on Feb. 11, and Burapa Pattaya Bike Week in Pattaya on Feb. 13.
