Post Bunblefoot & Hoey need to raise money to tour with Yngwie?
I guess being a "guitar God" isn't all it's cracked up to be.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ga ... -gods-tour


"Hi friends, I'm Gary Hoey and my friend Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal are heading on the road for the GUITAR GODS TOUR (featuring Yngwie Malmsteen and Uli Jon Roth). We need your help to bring all our bandmates and crew on this crazy tour. Five weeks and 13,000 miles of bouncing around the US and Canada is no easy task when you are an independent artist. We will do anything for our fans. We had this crazy idea we could all share one rhythm section to make the tour financially possible, but Bumblefoot and I said HECK NO! We have to take our bands, that's what our fans want. Of course, this is going to cost a crap load of cash! $13,000 in fuel just for starters. paying for band, crew, insurance, food (They don't work for pizza and beer anymore) All the funds we raise will go to the expenses of this tour. And if we don't reach our goal, no one gets charged a dime. We will offer some great rewards for your support. And any pledge even $5 will get you access to the exclusive video diary from the road we will be adding often. We can't thank you enough and we hope to see you on the Guitar Gods Tour, best regards from Gary and Bumblefoot. Rock on!"

Translation: we're contractually committed to doing this tour, but despite agreeing an arragement which would have made it financially viable for everyone, we want you suckers to pony up enough cash so we can take our entire "entourage" with us. There's no way we are dumb enough to shell out an additional $13k on fuel, let alone any of the other overheads involved with packing a bus full of our friends, so we'd thought we'd try Kickstarter to see if anyone is gullible enough to give us what we want. In return, we'll send you some links to videos or something. Come on, let's see how stupid you fuckers really are.

Who the fuck cares about their backing bands? Share a rhythm section for all I care. Bumble is a backing musician last time I checked.

maybe they just discovered Yngwie outsmarted them both - by having a viable contract - and keeping all the profits and touring support monies..
that in order to survive on the road for this tour- they will literally have to pay to play.. wouldn't put it past Yngwie...

but ya.. that is kinda low..they are 'known' musicians
and isn't the ticket price like $ 50.00 ??- it isn't like the price it $20 that would merit funding.. I bet out of that $50 - they would have to share $ 1.00 for the breakdown.. to finance their tour and earning monies. combined..
while Yngwie takes 99% ...

I've got tix to see the show in Beverly Hills. Hope it won't get cancelled because I'm really looking forward to seeing Yngwie and Uli Jon Roth.

Last time I saw Yngwie was when he was touring with Doro and Ronnie James Dio.

who would have thought there would be anyone so desperate as to pay-to-play an Yngwie show? Especially the lead guitarist of Scab GnR (obviously shows that GnR does not pay the scabs very well).

Well, for Hoey & Bumblefoot, that would seem to be their target audience.

What A rip even the one for the New York State Blues Fest is not asking for that much and that is a festival and their perks are way way better

Don't forget Bumblefoot will have his hot sauce available at the Guitar Center autograph sessions. :roll:

He could be a great guitarist and a nice guy for all I know but I have a predjudice against him because he is in Axl's band.

Makes you wonder just how much he actually makes in GNR...
Is he serious about selling his used underwear?? That's just nasty.

Great guitarist? If you live in a town with 1000 people, there are easily 5 high school kids who can play better.

Well, for Hoey it makes sense. But for Bumblefoot? These shows are booked into small venues (and the attendance will be even worse without Uli), and so i can't see Bumblefoot (god that's a stupid name) thinking that his audience will vastly expand through this tour -- it's not like opening for G3 or even Satriani.

but what do I know?

I will say the situation is typically ruthless Yngwie and April Malmsteen tactics. His profit sharing approach appears to be the same as his stage sharing approach.

Uli drops off the tour, the supporting acts are begging for money and I just noticed the routing for these shows...

•06/20/14 Friday St. Charles, IL Arcada Theater
•06/21/14 Saturday Toronto ON Phoenix Concert Theater
•06/22/14 Sunday Joliet IL Mojoe’s Concert Hall

Stupid. No way this tour makes a dime.

And since when is Mojoes a "concert hall"? It's a shitty little club. :lol:

First off, Hoey and Bumblefuck are not guitar gods- they are "barely mentions." Some douche [probably either Hoey or Bumble] posted a big rant on the other page saying he saw Hoey recently and he was great even though there were only 25-30 ppl there! :lol: :lol: :lol: If you can only bring in 25-30 to your gigs you should not be on tour or expect a fucking bus! Time to maybe think about that Executive Training Program at Bloomingdale's...

Yeah but even for as much as I hate Yngwie personally and musically- he IS a Guitar God and it's HIS tour...
