L.A. Guns Parts Ways With Guitarist (Again), Announces Replacement
L.A. GUNS has apparently parted ways with its guitarist of one month, Frankie Wilsey (SEA HAGS, ARCADE), and has replaced him with Michael Grant from ENDEVERAFTER. Grant will make his live debut with L.A. GUNS this weekend in Chicago and Detroit.
Writing on his Facebook page, L.A. GUNS bassist Scotty Griffin said: “Is [Michael] our permanent guitarist? What happened to the last guitarist? Whose solo album is better, Paul‘s or Ace‘s? I can’t say… I’m just the bass player. But you heard it here first. Stay tuned.” He added in a separate post: “Set up and ready to rock Illinois tonight! First show of the year, and first show with our newest member, Michael Grant of ENDEVERAFTER on lead guitar!”
Due to “extenuating circumstances and musical differences,” guitarist Stacey Blades announced his departure from L.A. GUNS in early December.
Blades played on four L.A. GUNS albums: “Rips The Covers Off” (2004), “Tales Trom The Strip” (2005), “Loud And Dangerous: Live From Hollywood” (2006) and “Hollywood Forever” (2012). He also authored a book, “Confessions Of A Replacement Rockstar”, which was published in 2009.
