Stacey Blades / LA Guns

As a kid in Toronto, Stacey spent hours learning classic rock riffs from bands like Aerosmith, Ozzy, Van Halen and Rush. When the first wave of L.A. metal hit in the 1980’s, Stacey became an obsessed metalhead adding influences from the Sunset Strip. He started off as guitarist from Roxx Gang until joining L.A. Guns in 2003. Stacey showcased his well-honed brand of guitar playing and songwriting in such works as Tales from the Strip and the critically acclaimed Hollywood Forever. With L.A. Guns, Stacey has shared the bill with Alice Cooper, Whitesnake, Scorpions, Cinderella, Dokken, Skid Row and Warrant, to name a few.

In 2009, Stacey wrote and published a very revealing and often humorous autobiography Snake Eyes. The book received high marks from fans all over the globe. The same year he released his first Guitar Instrumental Solo album called Symphonic Slam, which is a remarkable collection of rocked out numbers by Strauss, Bach, Beethoven, Handel and more. At the end of 2012, Stacey decided to leave L.A. Guns to pursue more personal opportunities for performing and songwriting. He is currently touring with Ratt. .
