GUNS N' ROSES Guitarist Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal to Join Dubai Rockers POINT OF VIEW on Stage

Before Guns N' Roses begins their upcoming residency at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas, guitarist Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal will be flying out to Dubai for a special performance with local band Point Of View for the release of their debut album 'Revolutionize The Revolutionary'.

"My first time in Dubai was with Guns N' Roses in December 2010. It was a real eye-opener as to how much local bands there rocked - first hearing our support act Juliana Down, and soon after getting acquainted with the band Point Of View. Point Of View were releasing their debut album 'Revolutionize The Revolutionary' and sent me a copy - first song kicked in with this RATM/Pantera groove, great recording, great playin', lyrics with a message, great album, and they did it all *DIY* which I've always been supportive of.

Proceeds from their album will be going to animal welfare, something I'm also very supportive of. So when their album release concert was confirmed for early October a few weeks before Guns N' Roses was hitting the road again, and the idea of getting on stage with them came up, I was happy to do it."

The show takes place on Wednesday, October 3rd at the Hard Rock Cafe in Dubai. Doors open 8:00pm and show starts with the band Xceed. Point Of View play next and Bumblefoot will join them on stage for their songs, a few Guns N' Roses songs and maybe a Bumblefoot song or two.

I hope some of this shows up on YouTube, I'd like to check it out. In spite of his chronic pain situation this guy seems to have an incredible work ethic.

I also love the inclusion of side projects and one-off gigs by any/all GNR alumni as part of the collective and collected GNR lore.

That's part of my idea here: to help us discover new music while still keeping this GN'R related.
