Guns N’ Roses’ profile page on Spotify previously had a photo of the band’s original lineup: Axl Rose, Slash, Duff McKagan, Izzy Stradlin, and Steven Adler. Now though, the official profile photo is simply a logo of the band, as seen below. After you look at the photo, check out an ex-Guns N’ Roses member proclaiming why rock will NEVER die!
Former Guns N’ Roses guitarist Ron ‘Bumblefoot’ Thal was asked by Audio Ink Radio in a recent interview about those who claim that “rock is dead.”
Bumblefoot said, “Anyone who says that, I mean I can understand what they might be saying, like, maybe rock has not been funded in the mainstream where was 30 years ago, but rock is far from that. If you don’t believe me, you can go to any school of rock across the world or anything like it and see 7-year-old kids jumping around with guitars and doing it.
Rock has never been more alive and well, and it always will be, because rock is the final form of physical music. If you look at all the types of music that there have been throughout history where the music is made by a person doing something to the instrument, whether it’s the drums or guitar or keyboards or anything, rock is the final one that we have. Electronic music is not physical music. Rock will never die as long as people want to physically make music, and people, I don’t think, will ever stop wanting to do that.”
