Guns N’ Roses Member Has Guitar That Looks Like Foot

Music enthusiasts are known for going above and beyond to entertain the musicians. These incidents from music enthusiasts can sometimes be problematic for the musicians. Bumblefoot from Guns N’ Roses recently recalled one such incident while appearing on a podcast.

According to Ultimate Guitar, this incident is from the mid-to-late 2000s when Bumblefoot was a member of Guns N’ Roses. Bumblefoot is known for double-neck instruments, featuring a fretless fingerboard, as well as his “Flying Foot” guitar. While appearing on The Heavy Hooks Show podcast, Bumblefoot recalled this experience. He didn’t understand the situation and was perplexed by what had happened in front of him.

Bumblefoot stated, “I had this guitar that looked like a foot. It looks like ‘The Adventures of Bumblefoot’ character on that album — like this human foot with black and yellow stripes, a stinger, and bee wings.” He talked about the guitar and who pitched it to him. As per the input, French brand Vigier Guitars, with the company’s founder, Patrice Vigier, pitching the idea in the first place.

The former Guns N’ Roses member stated “I had a guitar that was like it where you push down the vibrato bar, and it would make the wings pop out. So I was taking the solo — I think it was either in Istanbul or Athens; I forget which one, it was one of those shows — and I’m on stage by myself.” He recalled the experience with his memory and called it an experience to remember.

Bumblefoot went on about the experience and the moment. He remembers it vividly and stated, “And it’s one point I’m just making all these crazy noises with the guitar, and then suddenly, I see the bottom wing just going [down]. It’s just sitting there, and it’s just flopping down.” He has some very relevant memories about the situation, and went on to talk about it with more information.

The former Guns N’ Roses guitarist stated, “I look at my feet, and I see all these pieces of little strips of wood at my feet. I’m like, ‘Oh, no’. And I just look up, and I see 10,000 confused people just staring at me, like, waiting to see what I do next. And I think I did some kind of little dance. Then I went like that, I walked off, I switched guitars, and then I just kept playing and did everything.”

While he doesn’t actively perform for the fans, it’s clear that he has a legacy and a legendary status in the music world. It would be wonderful to see how he copes up with such experiences and if he has any more stories to tell the fans in the near future.
