L.A. Guns have officially announced that Frankie Wilsey has been hired to replace the recently departed Stacy Blades (who replaced the band's namesake Tracii Guns)

The band had this to say: "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, Arcade, on the Rock Never Stops tour.

"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.

"Frankie joins the band with Guns blazing, ready to tour the world and get involved in writing and recording new original material."

Frankie states, "I met Phil and Steve years ago, traveling down this road. Found out they're blessed with classic rock style and a road warrior ethic that is rare in this weakling world of music. I have to say, I think this is a very good match up. Let's hope the fans feel the same."
