Glam fans, I have some breaking news to share. My favorite sleaze-flamenco band The Gypsy Pistoleros are adding another member.
...And he's famous.
...And it's going to cause some controversy.
It's Eric Stacy of Faster Pussycat (the Brent Muscat version). While the Pistoleros haven't officially announced this line-up change, I can tell you that my source is very reliable. I can also tell you that the remaining Pistoleros are intact, so no worries on that front. Stacy is rumored to play rhythm guitar for the Pistoleros.
Of course, the question is will Stacy remain in Faster Pussycat, or is this the final nail in the coffin for the Muscat version? I'll try to work on these questions and bring you some answers. The intrepid reporter is on the case!
The Gypsy Pistoleros were set to tour Europe with RATT. Stephen Pearcy and company cancelled that European tour without warning, leaving my Pistoleros a little high and dry. I do believe that tour will still happen. Routing is still being planned.
Right now, the flamenco warriors are working on an American distribution deal for their debut effort Wild, Beautiful, Damned.
****The Gypsy Pistoleros have already been invited back to Rocklahoma 2008. Tickets for next summer's festival were released this morning. Good luck to those who plan to purchase. You may do so at www.feverfest.com. Another tipster tells me two of the headliners for Rocklahoma 2008. Since I can't independently confirm this tip, I'll keep the information to myself.
