Guns N’ Roses guitarist Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal became a KISS fan early. He was just five years old when some of the older kids in his neighborhood played him the band’s classic 1975 live album, KISS Alive! “It was one of those life-changing moments,” he says. “I was immediately inspired. All at once, I knew that I wanted to play the guitar and do what KISS did.”
