Barry James Stock (born April 24, 1974) is the lead guitarist of the Canadian rock band Three Days Grace.


Barry Stock is a Canadian guitarist, born in Belgium on April 24, 1974. His father was in the army. He joined Three Days Grace in 2003, shortly after their self-titled debut studio album was released. Stock's addition in Three Days Grace made the band a four-piece. Stock uses Schecter, Ibanez and PRS guitars, but prefers an Ibanez SZ320. He has also been seen using an Ibanez SZ4020FM Prestige. Since the discontinuation of the SZ series in 2008, Stock has started to use other guitars in the Ibanez line such as the ART series and Darkstone series. He uses Marshall Amplification and various effect pedals, mostly by Digitech. On the Live at the Palace DVD he revealed he uses Diezel Vh4 Amplifiers. He also has a brother named Chris who is a chiropractor in Corydon, Indiana. At the 2010 Juno Awards, Stock presented April Wine with their induction into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame. Stock is the founder and CEO of MEAN Clothing Company. The clothing is rock music/military inspired. There is also a MEAN Beard division. Stock's interests in addition to music include hunting and the outdoors.

At a young age, Stock was introduced to bands such as Black Sabbath, Van Halen and AC/DC.

Some of Stock's guitar influences include Paul Gilbert, Yngwie Malmsteen, Tony MacAlpine, Tony Iommi, Ritchie Blackmore, Stephen Carpenter of Deftones and Daron Malakian from System of a Down.
