L.A. Guns Get New Guitarist

He looks like a prettier Joe Perry

That was quick.

California rockers L.A. Guns have added guitarist Frankie Wilsey to its ranks.

Stacey Blades quit only a week ago, I feel.

“We first met [Frankie] back in 2007 when he was playing in Stephen Pearcy’s band, Arcade, on the Rock Never Stops tour,” says the 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’s been playing guitar since 1977. He formed his first band, Head On, in San Francisco in ’81 and then went on to form the hometown Bay Area champions Sea Hags in ’88. He moved to Los Angeles in the early ’90s, where he teamed up with Stephen Pearcy of Ratt and Fred Coury of Cinderella to form Arcade. In addition to lots of sessions in Los Angeles, Frankie recently toured with legendary singer John Waite and also had a residency in Las Vegas as Joe Perry in the definitive Aerosmith tribute band Aeromyth.”

Wait, I see what they did there. They added Myth to the end of Aerosmith, but dropped the “S.” That’s ingenious.

“Frankie joins [L.A. Guns] with guns blazing, ready to tour the world and get involved in writing and recording new original material.”
