has apparently parted ways with its guitarist of one month, Frankie Wilsey
), and has replaced him with Michael 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
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.
