Rock Legend News: Stacey, you have a unique style and sound. What has been your approach to music; has there been someone or something in particular that has profoundly influenced you?

Stacey Blades: I was and still am way into Randy Rhoads. I also very much into Neal Schon. I get a lot of my melodic style from him. There is so many players that I grew up listening to. Hendrix, Page, Alex Lifeson... Just tried to borrow and get inspired by their playing.


Rock Legend News: You seemed to be a good match with Roxx Gang and were with them for about 8 years. What is the story with that band; why did you leave, or what did happen?
