Guns N' Roses guitarist Ron Thal, aka Bumblefoot, will be appearing at two UK meet and greets this weekend, presented by Vigier guitars.

Despite the circus surrounding the recent release of Chinese Democracy, you can't exactly accuse Axl and co of doing a mountain of press or public appearances.

Indeed, Bumblefoot's meet and greets will represent the only public appearance of a Guns N' Roses member in the UK this year.

UK fans of Bumblefoot and Guns N' Roses will have the opportunity to meet and talk to Ron about his playing, experiences and life in GN'R.
