GUNS N’ ROSES guitarist Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal spoke to Argentina’s Vorterix prior to his November 24 appearance at The Roxy Palermo in Buenos Aires. A few excerpts from the chat follow below (transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET).
Bumblefoot putting his foot down with Axl ”I’m saying it here first — I’m choosing my own life; I have to. If I’m gonna be painted into a corner where I have to choose between being in GUNS N’ ROSES and the entire rest of my life, and if they’re not willing to help me keep the two functioning well together, then I’m out.”

Ja, så er der kommet et par synlige sider frem på bloggen, som jeg stadig arbejder på – så I, der følger med her, kan se hvordan siden langsomt udvikler sig hver dag. I går koksede den store oversigt (al tekst “klappede sammen”, så jeg måtte rette det hele på plads – det tog gudskelov ikke lang tid!) jeg har arbejdet på de sidste par måneder, hvilket har gjort, at jeg må dele den op i to bidder (se under “Historie”), og sådan vil du kunne finde underkolonner fremefter, når der tilføjes nye oversigter. Hovedsiden når du trykker på menuen, vil bestå af en kort introduktion til undermenuerne, så jeg håber at det vil forblive enkelt og overskueligt for dig som læser. Jeg tager meget gerne imod tips & tricks, hvis du er interesseret i at hjælpe.
Who wants to buy Axl Rose‘s marriage certificate? How about the actual wedding video of the singer’s marriage to former actress and model Erin Everly? What about a domestic abuse report? Or break-up letters penned by Rose after the marriage didn’t work out? All of this and more can be yours! Seriously.
Celebrity memorabilia is a pretty lucrative industry, and there’s honestly no telling what weird stuff fans will purchase and for what price. For anyone obsessed with Guns N’ Roses vocalist Axl Rose, a mass of unique items from his marriage to Erin Everly has become available at Julien’s Auctions.
The items of for grabs are pieces from “the collection of Erin Everly” and you won’t believe how deeply personal some of them are. More “normal” items such as Axl Rose’s leather pants, the shirt he wore in the ‘Welcome to the Jungle’ video and old backstage passes are being offered for a price, but these are just tips of the iceberg.
Numerous love letters written by Axl Roses for Everly can be purchased for a few hundred bucks, as can clusters of hand-written poems and lyrics from Rose. The pieces start to get weirder, however, as a copy of Rose and Everly’s 1990 wedding video is priced at $2,000 – $3,000. Additionally, the couple’s marriage certificate is also being auctioned off for the same estimated price.
Strangest of all has got to be a copy of a domestic abuse report filed by the Los Angeles Police Department in 1988. The paper details an alleged incident in which the victim was kicked and beaten with fists. This particular package comes with a bill for the sale Everly’s wedding ring, an “I Love You Erin” note written by Rose, a $5,027 receipt from Franklin Fuller Properties and another receipt from Crown T.V. for the repair of a television that Everly claims Rose broke.
See it all for yourself at Julien’s Auctions.
GlideMagazine.com: How does it make you feel when people constantly criticize GUNS and your bandmates so unfairly?
I get it. I understand people want what they remember the band as being. A lot of times, people have a hard time accepting. Fans of FLEETWOOD MAC before they got Stevie Nicks, if they were fans of Peter Green, they didn’t get it. Most of those people, it took them a long time to accept FLEETWOOD MAC as a different band because it wasn’t Peter Green. The same deal with the SANTANA band and all the changes that band went through. For people to accept VAN HALEN with Sammy Hagar singing, even though that was their most successful time and they sold more records with Sammy Hagar, a lot of people that liked VAN HALEN from the beginning didn’t want to hear anything but David Lee Roth on it. Same thing with GENESIS. I have a hard time listening to GENESIS with Phil Collins singing after Peter Gabriel. It just goes on and on, the list is quite long. And I think it’s harder when you change singers, because it’s such a huge voice of the music and really that’s like the most personal aspect and connection to a band is generally through the singer. And when you change that, it changes the character of the band. And in the same respect, changing anybody else makes it different as well. And it’s a different band. A lot of people accept it and a lot of people don’t. And that’s OK.
