Today my aunt finally began her voyage to the other side. As you can, see she had a great laugh and loved inappropriate humor. I was there when the undertaker came to take her away. When he said, ‘Dont worry we’ll be very gentle with her..’ I replied, ‘Thats ok-She likes it rough!’ I swear I could hear her laughing from beyond... The undertaker looked confused... I also found this Jack-o-lantern and I’m taking it on tour with me. Seems appropriate since she took me to my first concert! Godspeed aunt Elsie

Happy 4th of July! Love this photo @erichookupphotography took of me doing what I love. Playing music. I posted this photo last year, but it still resonates with me when I’m on tour during the 4th of July. Also, Thank you to you, yes 👇🏻! For supporting the bands I’ve played with. You rock and no matter where you are in the world, I hope your feeling free! #gratitude #acey #aceyslade #misfits #dope #murderdolls #joanjett #punkrock #punknroll #rrhof #ernieball #seymourduncan #hipshot #darkglass #korg #earthquakerdevices #Groverallmon
I haven’t played the Opera House in Toronto since we played here with the Murderdolls. It was only fitting to hang out with @mrmotherfucker13 and @lydiamunster and tell Ben Graves stories. Thanks for an awesome night-as usual-Toronto.

Toronto! You never disappoint! And thanks to @danko_jones for for the book! Danko has an awesome book called, ‘I’ve got something to say..!’ #acey #aceyslade #dope #misfits #murderdolls #toronto #dankojones
22,000 fiends can’t be wrong! Starting the dope tour tonight in Toronto! *Ive mentioned it a few times, but keep getting asked- I am NOT-doing the OZ, EU/UK dates with Dope. I AM doing the Misfits shows. ‘Fuckin’ algorithms...
Before our show on Saturday I got the sad news that while my Aunt-while not physically leaving us, clearly her soul ha-and-would complete her journey to the other side. Our show also fell on the same night as the memorial show for our friend @jasontrioxin It was a heavy day. During our set I looked up in the sky and saw just two stars. Right next to each other. I couldn’t help but feel that it was the two of them watching the gig. This show was for the two of you!
Just when you think the shows couldn’t go better, you have one like last night.. Everyone in the band and crew are top notch. Jerry, Glenn and Doyle have been great as has my boy Dave here. And-obviously-the Fiend Club! The 138! Really bring it every time. So- a lot of surprises were pulled out last night: What was your favorite song?

Dear Creeps,⠀ The Scranton PA show on the Static X/Dope/Wednesday 13 tour has been cancelled. Just that show. I know this is very disappointing to those that bought tix; refunds are available to all. ⠀ But, let me share something here that I don't normally like to share; ⠀ This is not a huge tour. It's doing way better than anyone expected and it would appear that all the bands are on a huge up swing. This tour is CRUSHING IT...⠀ But, it's not a huge tour. Tours like this have budgets, just like most us. Meaning, if you have to take a day off from work, you likely won't get paid. If you don't get paid, that effects your monthly budget, right.⠀ Same with a rock n roll tour. Maybe even more so because it's also a day that Merch won't be sold.⠀ So, if a band needs to cancel a show, it isn't because they simply don't want to play. Truth is they kinda HAVE to play to stay on budget. ⠀ Take it easy on the bands when they have to cancel. ⠀ Unless they do it regularly....well..then fuck 'em.⠀ I can vouch for all the people on this tour. They HATE day's off.
I had to switch hotels so...I get a new guitar ya know?! I had an idea of a single pick up, Les Paul Standard. My friend @kevinwilsonnyc a lead on a stock 2 pick up Gibson Les Paul Standard. Keith @marvinguitars suggested a stop tailpiece and then we knew we had to have it pained Brunswick Blue... Keith did a great job! Now cats like @jaredjamesnichols And @joeperryofficial Are doing single cut PU’s now so clearly I’m in good company. Can’t wait for tomorrow’s show @bancofcaliforniastadium Nearly sold out, so get ‘em now! #gibson #lespaul #acey #aceyslade #misfits #ogmisfits

Early AM flight?! Well you’ve got some nerve! Lol.. #acey #aceyslade #misfits #ogmisfits #dope #dopetheband #streetwalkincheetah
When preparing for the upcoming shows I can’t help but think about our friends who aren’t with us. @jasontrioxin being one of them so, he’s been on my mind. After a long day working on music stuff, I had decided to call it a day, and look at some old photography work of mine.. Somehow-I found a stash of photos from the 2006 tour I did with @mrmotherfucker13 and Jason on guitar! I think Jason and I were a great duo and I really enjoyed our dynamic. Miss you buddy! #mistermonster #jsintrioxin #horrorpunk #wednesday13 #aceyslade

#tbt my good friend and band mate Mr. Jerry Only on stage with me when I was in the Murderdolls. How lucky am I to now be on HIS stage Saturday June 29th in California, then out on tour with @mrmotherfucker13 the very next day. Sure wish there was a way Eric and The Ghoul could join us. #acey #aceyslade #misfits #themisfits #jerryonly #ogmisfits #dope #murderdolls
Quick shout out to the companies that keep the rock, rolling! You don’t always see the name or know the company of strings or IEMs because...well if the name was printed on the string it would be...at most....50mm big...and you can’t read that... Thanks to @ernieball for the strings, @groverallman for the picks and @westoneaudio for my in-ear monitors.
Happy birthday to @michaelmonroeofficial There is only one cliche’ about this man; that would be that he is often imitated but never duplicated. This is a shot from 2003 (?) in Nottingham, when Hanoi had reformed. I was on the @kerrangmagazine_ tour as a guest DJ and our dates often intersected with Hanoi Rocks. I was invited to jam with them a few times and sometimes DJ’ed their show as well. We even ended up at some party at the Finish Embassy one night in London. I may sound to be painting a picture of a rosey friendship, which wouldn’t be true. It’s more that as a kid from a small town in Pennsylvania I always hoped to be as cool as these guys. To be welcomed in, was a great feeling. Happy birthday Michael! And if you haven’t checked out Michaels work and are a fan of authentic punk n’ roll. I’d say it’s time you’ve begun! @michaelmonroeofficial #rocklikefuck
Finally! This is what I’m doing with my life.. 6/29 @bancofcaliforniastadium with The Misfits. 6/30-7/30 With @dopetheband and @mrmotherfucker13 @devildriver and @staticxofficial 9/7 @fiddlersgreenco *support from The Distillers 9/11 @oraclearena *support from Rancid 9/14 @whiteriveramp *support from The Distillers. The Damned and The Cro Mags on all Sept shows. Sadly, no Europe this summer, but..ehh...Good life problems to have! #acey #aceyslade #dope #misfits #themisfits #ogmisfits #murderdolls
Happy fathers day to my dad. 50% of where I get my work ethic and determination. 100% of where @I get my terrible sense of humor. I can explain how meaningful it was to have him at this show-sold out at the Prudential Center. I’m sure he’s proud of me no matter what, but this was the icing on the cake.
Since it’s Caturday, @christianmartucci decided to let the cat out of the bag! Check it out... #Repost @christianmartucci ・・・ August 6th! Save the date!

Happy Caturday from these two weirdos.
If you are a drinker, you have to check out my boy @the_garnishguy he’s a rock star in the liquor world. So glad me and @meiling_c_s got to hang out with him and the rest of the @mozartchocolateliqueur crew at @barconventbrooklyn the past 2 days. #coffee #deadsledcoffee #cafe #barista #bartender #cocktail
What the fuck am I doing up at 6:30am on a Saturday? Making coffee mother truckers! ‘Why Acey surely you got your fix of punk rock festivals out of your system last weekend?!?’ Nope! I will be at the @deadsledcoffee booth today from 1-7pm at @ncbcbeer 7th anniversary show. We have 5 great bands; @schooldrugsnj @fireintheradio Tim Barry from @availrichmond Modern Life is War and Philly’s very own @davehause We will have our brand new Draven Cold Brew Coffee on tap as well as Nightshade tea and regular Dead Sled Cold Brew. And, obviously...for the purists-Mourning Blend hot coffee.
Happy National Doughnut day!
Grateful for the abundance in my life...but also looking forward to getting back to my crypt in Taiwan to relax...which won’t be till...Well at this rate, I have no clue, ha, ha But it takes pressure to make diamonds, so bring it!
Shot from last week at the @the_distillers_official show. Super excited to have them on the LA, Denver and Seattle shows. I mean, The Distillers AND the Damned?! WTF?!? Anyway-I’ll make sure both bands are well caffeinated with some @deadsledcoffee #acey #aceyslade #deadsled #deadsledcoffee #thedistillers #brodydalle #misfits #ogmisfits

Sunday nite jams.. The D’Angelico I used on my UK acoustic tour and-the acoustic performance I did with @tommyvext The Greco Tele has hand wound @seymourduncanpickups Antiquity pick ups.

Both-good to wrap yo your Sunday nite with.

Happy birthday Mr. Edsel Dope! Aside from Joan, I’ve probably done more gigs with this guy than anyone else. I consider anyone who has passed though the Dope camp to be a brother in one way or another. It’s not always an easy gig-but you know that you’ve gotten a seal of approval from one hard working, demanding motherfucker. I’ve learned a lot from this guy and am happy that we’re still friends. Happy birthday big guy!
The Thunder Jet! Made by me, YOU and @marvinguitars A revolutionary idea in signature guitars. You pick the finish, the fret size and the pick ups. No guitars are built until YOU order it. Hand made in Southern California. Link in the bio.
Who wants to do a Facebook live chat tomorrow at noon? I wanna talk guitars and more specificity my new Thunder Jet guitar from @marvinguitars Head over to my Facebook page at noon east coast time tomorrow and have all your guitar relevant questions ready! #acey #aceyslade #dope #misfits #joanjett #murderdolls #marvinguitars #gibsonguitars #seymourduncan #ernieball Photo by @ericavincentphotos
