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

During an appearance earlier this week on "Trunk Nation", Eddie Trunk's show on SiriusXM channel Volume (106),Thal was asked if he had any regret about his nearly decade-long stint with Guns. He responded: "You could look at anything and say, 'What if I took a different path?' 'What if I did different things?' 'What if I said no and did this instead?' 'What if I just focused on my solo stuff or producing or whatever else or film and TV music?' Ugh… nah. Your life is your life, and whatever decisions you made, they were based on who you were, who you are and what was supposed to happen and what's meant to be and who you are today and what you learned from it and all of that mumbo-jumbo crap. So, yeah. Do I regret it? No. Absolutely not. If you'd asked me three years ago, I would have [given a] different [answer]. But, no. Absolutely not. I got to be part of making millions of people cheer and enjoy themselves. It's wonderful."

Asked what his personal highlight was from his time with Guns N' Roses, Thal said: "The first thing that always comes to mind is playing the Bridge School Benefit [organized by musicians Neil Young and Pegi Young], when we got to play a show… It was a benefit for [the Bridge School, which assists children with severe physical impairments and complex communication needs]… And having the kids and their families right on stage with us on this big platform behind us. I remember just almost ignoring the audience in front of us and just going back to them and just taking a kid's hand and helping him strum the guitar. Things like that. That's always the first thing that comes to mind."

Former Guns N' Roses guitarist Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal says that he has no interest in seeing the band perform on the "Not In This Lifetime" tour, saying that it would be like "going to your ex-girlfriend's wedding."

During an appearance on "Trunk Nation", Eddie Trunk's show on SiriusXM channel Volume (106), Thal said that he "heard things" about a possible reunion of Guns N' Roses' classic lineup prior to his exit but that it didn't have an affect on his decision to leave the Axl Rose-fronted outfit. "No, I was [already] done," he said. "I was burned out on it. I was. I was doing more harm than good staying at that point."

Asked if he has seen of the shows from the partially reunited classic Guns N' Roses since they announced their return more than a year ago, Thal said: "No, that would be weird, man. Would you go to your ex-girlfriend's wedding? It's kind of like that. It's just kind of weird. I know too much. I've seen too much. I've been on the other side of the stage, and it's not like it ended pretty — for me. I don't have [any hard feelings] now, but at the time, there was a volatility, yeah."

Thal joined Guns N' Roses in 2006 and played on 2008's "Chinese Democracy", an album which contained music that had been written before he came into the group. He has also released a number of solo CDs.

Thal is currently involved with Art Of Anarchy alongside Creed singer Scott Stapp and Disturbed bassist John Moyer.
