Hollywood — It lasted less than a month. What you ask? The latest guitarists run in L.A. Guns.
On December 18th 2012 the band announced HERE that Frankie Wilsey (Ex. Sea Hags, Stephen Pearcy band) was to be Stacey Blades official replacement in L.A. Guns. Part of the band’s press release is noted below:
"L.A. Guns are delighted to announce the new guitarist is our old friend Frankie Wilsey, who we first met back in 2007 when he was playing in Stephen Pearcy’s band. Frankie spent more time on our bus than his own, impressing us with hours of classic bootleg videos from the ’70s and ’80s. He was clearly a rock aficionado, truly a scholar and a gentleman. Frankie joins the band with Guns blazing, ready to tour the world and get involved in writing and recording new original material."
Metal Sludge broke the story HERE on December 9th that Blades was rumored to be leaving the band. A day later Blades himself posted a message on his official Facebook wall acknowledging it was true. Blades had played with L.A. Guns for nearly a decade replacing the bands founder and name sake Tracii Guns.
Now it’s 29 days later and the rumor is that Michael Grant is to be the newest member of L.A. Guns and Wilsey is gone. According to an inside source, it is alleged that Wilsey may have had an issue with the ‘sauce’. But Metal Sludge cannot confirm nor deny that at press time. As for who’s in L.A. Guns and who is not – well Michael Grant himself posted the following message earlier today.
Looks like Michael better charge his battery!
