The lead guitarist of rock’n’roll giants Guns N’ Roses is coming to Dubai – to jam on stage with a local rock band. Six-string legend Ron ‘Bumblefoot’ Thal, who joined the rock monsters in 2006 and played on their Chinese Democracy album, will be a very special guest at the launch for local rockers Point of View’s debut album, after meeting the band online and liking what he heard. ‘Ron not only offered to come down, but also expressed his desire to play our songs with us on stage,’ says lead singer Nikhil Uzgare. ‘It took the band quite some time to believe all this was happening to an unknown band like us in Dubai.’ The launch takes place at the Hard Rock Café on Wednesday October 3, with tickets costing Dhs100.
