Guns N' Roses has decided to clear up the status of guitarist Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal, saying he is indeed out of the band -- and has been for some time.
A confirmed source with the band tells us that, "Bumblefoot quit last year. I don't understand why he continues to be evasive on his status with the band -- he quit in South America. He told Axl he was done and (Las) Vegas would be his last run with the band."
Bumblefoot, who joined GNR in 2006 to replace Buckethead, has hinted at his departure for some time, even telling us recently that "I think there's enough clues out there for you to figure out what I'm up to now" but adding that he was "honoring a request not to make any public statements" about his membership in the band. The GNR source's statement is the first confirmation of his departure.
The news follows in the wake of fellow guitarist DJ Ashba's announcement that he's left GNR to focus on his other band, Sixx: A.M., leaving Richard Fortus as the group's only guitarist. GNR drummer Frank Ferrer, however, said in an interview this week with Stone Chrome Radio that the group is "forging ahead;" "There's a plan in place, and it's happening, so that's all I can say."

Guess I was being foolish expecting  a real statement from the GNR camp. This statement might be their most meaningless to date.

All they did was parrot what we already knew.

I'll never understand why it had to be like this. No other artist/band has ever used their lazy, amateurish style when addressing fans or the media. It would only take five minutes to give a legitimate update.  Its not like they're too busy. Hell, when Soundgarden was touring AND recording King Animal they still kept fans informed.

This is bat shit crazy.

I suppose it's what you get when you have a bunch of amateurs running the clown show. I'm sure the "Management" couldn't even organise a piss up in a brewery.

1. Tell Ron to tell the press he needs to shut up about Guns. NDA starts now.
2. Allow the trademark application to lapse. Plausible deniabilty for 'new album'.
3. Read the letter DJ sent. Did he leave?
4. Tell the press Ron needs to shut up already.
5. Read the news. There must be something to tweet.
