Stacy + the SG = Love

Stacy: a Gibson girl at heart!


Prior to the formation of the Tragic Clowns, both Stacy and Steven had always served primarily as rhythm guitarists in their respective bands. Agreeing that one of them would have to step up and occupy the lead guitarist role for the T-Clowns, and also agreeing that Steven would be busy enough with handling lead vocal duties, the process of elimination seemed to be appointing Stacy for the job. Never one to shy away from a challenge, she began relearning her main instrument from a whole new perspective, and has taken to regarding the entire Tragic Clowns experience as a crash course in lead guitar.

As she’s been swimming out deeper into these exciting new waters, some of her favorite sources of inspiration include David Gilmour of Pink Floyd fame, her beloved George Harrison, Led Zeppelin genius Jimmy Page, guitar-god Jimi Hendrix, fellow Gibson SG enthusiast Tony Iommi of Black Sabbath, Buck Dharma of the ever under-appreciated Blue Oyster Cult, former Rolling Stones guitarist Mick Taylor, Bob Mould of Husker Du and subsequent acclaim, J Mascis of Dinosaur Jr., Elliot Easton of The Cars, Smashing Pumpkins’ Billy Corgan, and the late Glen Buxton of the original Alice Cooper Group.

Stacy also shares Steven’s love of the occult, and considers herself an “esoterican.” She maintains a spiritual/metaphysical practice founded on the four pillars of “Beauty, Power, Magic, and Love,” and this informs everything she does. Like her twin brother, she feels that the more music the band creates, the more they’ll be pouring their will and intention for positive change in the world into the mix. Less interested in the rumored bidding war between Victoria’s Secret and Leg Avenue to secure her endorsement of their hosiery lines, Stacy has her sights set instead on creating music that will affect the world like aural magic spells of the most benevolent design…
