Two members of GUNS N' ROSES stunned students at a school in Oxford, England on Tuesday (12Oct10) by dropping by unannounced to jam with wannabe musicians.
Guitarist Ron 'Bumblefoot' Thal and drummer Frank Ferrer visited the Witchwood School of Rock to perform with pupils and offer them advice about embarking on a music career.
Speaking before the visit, Ferrer told the BBC, "I'm actually more nervous going and talking to the kids than I am playing in front of 20,000 people. Because (on stage) you don't see them. Here you're going to see every little kid's face."
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
