Sadly it has only just come to my attention that we lost a great contributor in April 2018.  Lacey Anne BARKLEY...known to us as "LaceyB." She lost her battle with cancer.


I know things were not altogether good between Customs Forge and Lacey....but I play Bass and her charted songs helped me heaps.


Next time you play one of her songs just think of her for a moment and keep the music alive.


Rest in Peace girl you had a big heart and gave so much to those of us less skilled.  Over 2000 songs and I can't believe she is gone.


Make it loud on the other side mate....we will follow the noise when it is our turn.  Rock on.

There is no pain in A minor.

Oh no. I have all her customs and they are awesome. Now when I play them I will be a bit sad. RIP and hope she is shredding in the afterlife.

I'd like to play some of her cdlc by way of tribute, but I can't seem to find any.  Am I missing something, or am I just stupid?

I believe that, due to "reasons", she didn't post her customs here on the forge.  I am sure that if you ask around, someone will share the links with you.



@Alex360 - "His hands"?  Sure they're calloused and rough-looking, but nowhere near "manhands" :P

The smug level around here is becoming almost unbearable!

Rest in peace LaceyB.
For those who do not know his work, he left us a legacy of more than 2000 CDLC.
She really loved music and shared her knowledge and creations with us.
Today I will remember her playing one of her CDLC.
I have a great sadness.

She was always very nice to me in all the correspondence I had with her. I knew of her battle and emailed back and forth with her a few times over the last couple of years. She made some great customs and I'm very glad @SeanMo has taken over her library. He is continuing on her work. Completing some of her CDLC's that were not finished and of course making some really good ones himself. Thanks Sean, I really am liking the work you have been putting out. It was her request that none of her CDLC's be posted here for her own reason's. I too have cancer, not mentioning it for sympathy, but for letting others in the fight to keep fighting. As it was said by Izzy above, FUCK CANCER !!!!!

Hi Guys,


   I am shocked at hearing the news of the loss of LaceyB, I received the news today of her passing. I had kept in contact with her over the years by PM and emails as I know a lot of you guys have done also, and only recently found out she had been having health issues. Her generous time spent helping many of us at CustomsForge and The Classic Rock Coalition with our charting of Customs, will be remembered always. And all her many CDLCs that she spent so much time on and generously sharing them with all of us at Smithy's Anvil, CustomsForge and The Classic Rock Coalition is truly appreciated by us all and will be her legacy to us all also.


   Heart felt condolences to LaceyB's family and friends. She will be missed by all of us for sure.

I found out a few weeks ago and was pretty rocked by it.


Lacey and I collaborated on heaps of songs; she released most under her name and allowed me to release some under mine.  In the early days I taught her some stuff about charting but I was quickly left behind as the time she put into making them and her skill levels improved out of sight; both with charting and understanding music.


Her contribution to this community will likely never be surpassed.


I had a lot of time for Lacey.  She was smart, funny, passionate and tough as nails.  I'll miss our email chats about music and politics and TV shows and differences between our countries.


R.I.P. LaceyB.
