I think BBF is the Gilby of the new band, not in terms of style or talent but in terms of the inner band dynamics...a very nice guy who is great on tour and does what he has to do in that regard, who recorded overdubs on already existing material, but a guy that Axl has no interest in writing with, a guy that Axl doesn't really care for except as a hired guy. Wasn't there rumors that Axl was still trying to get Bucket back in GN'R only weeks before the Hammerstein shows in 2006? I think BBF to him is like a compromise, like Gilby was to Izzy...Not the guy he wanted, but instead a lesser version of the same kind of player, a guy who who only made touring a possibility...But not someone he truly respects or appreciates as a band member nor someone he's interested in writing with as a full partner.

Izzy = Down to Earth Rolling Stones fanboy. Quit suddenly which put touring plans at risk. Loved by Axl and seen by Axl as his partner in GN'R, who Axl begged to change his mind up to the last minute.

Gilby = Down to Earth Rolling Stones fanboy. A guy who dressed and seemed like Izzy and who was friendlier toward the fans and livelier on stage. Overdubbed Izzy's parts on TSI. Not really cared for by Axl and viewed as a lesser replacement who he didn't even care to write with. A guy who only came in at the last minute so the band could continue to tour. Vented his frustrations about the then stagnant state of GN'R in an interview in May 1994, and was fired by Axl the next month.

Buckethead = Weird shredder guy with a gimmick and a one word identity/persona who Axl viewed as his virtuoso player, who brought CD to another level, who Axl did everything to appease to get the best out of him. Someone Axl valued immensely as an asset to the band, who quit on the eve of plans to play live. Axl tried luring Bucket back into the fold as late as a few weeks before the tour began.

I really enjoy reading your posts. Sometimes i think you over think scenarios to do with GN'R. But great poster

Rule of thumb. If I say it it generally isn't meant to be taken seriously. :)

Interesting thread.

The truth is, we don't really know what Axl thinks about Ron. Only once the current band do a new album with freshly-written material will we know if Axl has any faith in Bumblefoot as a songwriter and potential GNR creative collaborater.

He'd be a fool to invest only in DJ, when Ron can run circles around DJ, Richard and pretty much anyone who's ever played guitar for Guns (including Buckethead). Not only that, but he is a terrific songwriter and vocalist.

Agreed. But what's the fun of waiting to see when eveveryone can jump to their own conclusions?

Agreed on pretty much all of that apart from the Bucket comparison and the songwriting. He's an average writer at best from what I've heard. :shrugs:

Oh, could be, except that he's the best live guitarist in Guns, plays the hardest parts while singing the meanest backing vocal bits :)

Doesn't matter what I say, they all made up their minds
I didn't like it then, and I still don't like it now

Ron made a significant impact on CD despite coming on too late in the game to do any writing.

The fact that Axl featured his additions prominently on CD in the form of lead, rhythm and solos says that he does in fact believe in Ron's talents and respects his musical ideas/contributions
