Ex LA Guns man unveils Atomic Radio

Former LA Guns guitarist Stacey Blades has formed a live cover band called Atomic Radio.

He quit his former group in 2012 following the release of Hollywood Forever and went on to create Let It Rawk – a Las Vegas-based multi-media show which features an all-star lineup of musicians.

Now he’s teamed up with Pyromania and Talon frontman Michael O’Mara and Candlebox bassist Adam Kury for the new group who will predominately play live covers of classic rock tracks. They’re joined by drummer Johnny Rude and guitarist/keyboardist Jeff C. Outlaw.

A statement on their website reads: “The band plays a raucous set of classic rock spanning from the mid-70s to early 80s performing hits and guilty pleasures from such artists as Aerosmith, Whitesnake, Scorpions, Cheap Trick, Foreigner, The Cars, Def Leppard and more.

“Their stage persona and look, mixed with a great choice of radio hits and big album tracks, sets them apart from your typical classic rock cover bands.”

Atomic Radio hope to make their live debut in Vegas and in casinos across the US later this year.
