Ace Finchum Leaves Gypsy Pistoleros, Looks For New Gig


June 23, 2008

Former Tigertailz drummer Ace Finchum has revealed that he has parted ways with Gypsy Pistoleros via a posting at

“Unfortunatley I have parted ways with the Gypsy Pistoleros, I guess the Ratt shows were the test for all of us as a band. Its not a nasty split, just personal differences. I wish them all the best, especially Iggz as we grew tight as very good friends and I will miss him for sure.

They have a new drummer, so the shows in America are still on!!

Sooooo, once again I am on the lookout for a new band, so if anyone hears of anything please don’t hesitate to get in contact with me.

Drumming is my life and I take it very seriously…………………….


P.S I’m not a band whore, it probably looks that way, but its far far from true…”
