Bumblefoot and Scott Weiland Form New Supergroup, Art of Anarchy
A new supergroup called Art of Anarchy will feature Bumblefoot and Scott Weiland, along with John Moyer of Disturbed and twins Jon and Vince Votta. You can get a taste of the band's upcoming self-titled debut album in the teaser video above.
Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal has been with Guns N' Roses since 2006, a stint that includes one GNR album, 2008's 'Chinese Democracy.' He's released two solo projects, including 'The Adventures of Bumblefoot,' which was reissued for its 15th-anniversary in 2010.
Weiland memorably fronted the Stone Temple Pilots before co-founding Velvet Revolver with former Guns N' Roses members Slash, Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum. Weiland was with the group from 2003-08. They've since reunited in 2012, but appear to be moving forward now without Weiland, who also has a solo album slated for 2015.
Art of Anarchy grew out of a nearly two-decades-long friendship between Bumblefoot and the Vottas. Bumblefoot not only serves as second guitarist but also as producer and engineer on the group's album. Jon Votta was the principal composer for 'Art of Anarchy,' which is due sometime this spring.
