GUNS N' ROSES star Ron 'bumblefoot' Thal was left humbled on Thursday (04Oct12) after performing for a group of children with autism.
The guitarist entertained the youngsters in Dubai after teaming up with Nikhil Uzgare, the frontman of local band Point Of View.
Thal played the Pink Panther theme acoustically, and he admits the experience was inspiring.
He tells website TheNational.ae, "Things like this, they change you. They make you sort of re-evaluate what's important. You start thinking about what you can do."
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
