Ron 'Bumblefoot' Thal: 'Indian fans jump, sing along'


New Delhi, June 14 -- The lead guitarist of American rock band Guns 'N' Roses, Ron 'Bumblefoot' Thal, who will be performing in the Capital today, says he absolutely loves performing in India, thanks to the gusto in the crowd.
"There's one thing about India. The fans are a lot more passionate and energetic here. They jump, sing along and are awesome. There are only a few places in the world where I actually like to play and India is one of them," says Ron, who performed in Hyderabad on June 11. "After our Hyderabad performance got over, someone from the crowd yelled, 'play Stairway To Heaven by Led Zeppelin!' I saw one of the people in the crowd with an acoustic guitar. I called him on stage and we played Stairway ... together. It was great. I really don't remember the last time I did something like this," he adds.
The 44-year-old also admits his love for Indian food. "I'm from New Jersey and the place has a large number of Indians who make good, authentic food. So, I am familiar with Indian cuisine and love biryani, kebabs and the chicken curries. In fact, I think the food available in India is a lot less greasier than that available in America."
