Summary from highvoltage at mygnrforum:

- Ron comes in at 9.50

- Speaks about the Kickstarter for the tour for the first 10 mins

- Starts talking about what to expect from the tour at 18 mins

- He explains that he's singing and playing lead, his original stuff, some instrumentals. A lot of the "crazy guitar stuff" because that's what the tour is about

- He's halfway through his next solo album at 21.30:

"It's coming out pretty melodic. I feel like I'm achieving something that I always wanted to and never quite really did... which is going back to Ace Frehley. It all goes back to Kiss. Because that's how my love for making music started.... Ace Frehley made the parts of the Kiss songs that you sang. It wasn't Paul Stanley's vocals, it was Ace's solos that you would sing. That's something that I never really felt like I nailed in my music (...) but there are certain guitar melodies that are just singable... and I feel like on this album, they're coming out.

- First GN'R bit at 23.20. Talks about the Duff shows briefly, what it was like to play with him.

- Starts talking about Kiss again at the 25 min mark

- Talks about doing more guitar clinics

- Gets asked about his back at the 30 mins mark

- Second GN'R bit at 31 mins. Talks about A4D:
"I'm curious. I'm very curious to see it. Actually I'm not. I never watch my own live stuff because I hear all the mistakes and all the screw ups and think it sounds terrible (....) but I hope people like it!"

Not much to take away, but interested to hear what he said about the new album. More melodic sounds good to me. He hit it at points on Normal, but it's something his solo music has definitely lacked in the past.

Excerpts from Blabbermouth:
------------------------------------

Episode 22 of "One On One With Mitch Lafon" features an interview with Guns N' Roses guitarist Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal.

Asked what it was like sharing the stage with original Guns N' Roses bassist Duff McKagan at five Guns N' Roses concerts in South America and the Revolver Golden Gods awards show in Los Angeles in April, Thal said: "It was not my first time playing with Duff. When Loaded came to New York in 2009 when they were touring, I jammed with them. He has joined us on stage a couple of times in the past few years, but we'd never done an entire show together, and we did half a dozen in South America, we did Golden Gods. It's nice. It's cool playing with him. He's rock solid and he's just a sweetheart of a guy and just a good person to play with."

He continued: "Musicians and other musicians… it's, like, you just enjoy playing with different people and you just love the experience, but you don't think of it in the context of, like, as a a fan, saying, 'Wow! I can't believe I'm playing with this person.' You almost think of it at this musical level where you're both musicians and you're just kind of vibing out as musicians and you don't think about that stuff. So, even, what was it, like, half a year ago, I played with Ace [Frehley] and Peter [Criss], and doing 'Hooligan' with Peter, he hadn't played that song in, like, 30 years, and as a KISS fan, I would be peeing in my pants, I'd be, like, 'Oh my God! I can't believe I'm playing with this guy.' But when you're on the stage, it's more like you're just focused on the song and connecting musically and just getting a real kick out of that and having fun with it, and you don't think about the rest."
