L.A. Guns is an American hard rock band from Los Angeles, California, formed in 1983. As of 2013, the lineup consists of Phil Lewis (vocals), Michael Grant (guitar), Scott Griffin (bass) and Steve Riley (drums, percussion). The first incarnation of the group was formed by Tracii Guns in 1983, but disbanded in 1985 following its merger with fellow Los Angeles group Hollywood Rose, becoming the first lineup of Guns N' Roses. The same year, the group was reformed by Guns and singer Paul Black adding Mick Cripps and Nickey Alexander. Black would soon be replaced by former Girl singer Phil Lewis while former Faster Pussycat bassist Kelly Nickels was added to the group. Later, Alexander would be replaced by former W.A.S.P. drummer Steve Riley with this being known as the "classic lineup" of L.A. Guns. They achieved moderate chart success in the late 1980s and early 1990s. However, the group went through numerous lineup changes (with Riley being the most consistent member) and failed to regain mainstream attention.The "classic lineup" of the group would reunite in 1999 and began recording new material. However, the group continued to change lineups and Guns eventually left to form the hard rock supergroup Brides of Destruction with Nikki Sixx of Mötley Crüe in 2002. L.A. Guns continued without Guns, bringing in guitarist Stacey Blades, however, following his decision to put Brides of Destruction on hiatus in 2006, Guns formed The Tracii Guns Band. The group's lineup consisted of former L.A. Guns members Black, Alexander as well as Jeremy Guns (though the lineup would eventually change), with the group eventually changing their name to L.A. Guns. Both groups continued to record and tour under the L.A. Guns moniker until 2012, when the Tracii Guns led version of the group disbanded.To date, L.A. Guns have released ten studio albums – L.A. Guns (1988); Cocked & Loaded (1989); Hollywood Vampires (1991); Vicious Circle (1995); American Hardcore (1996); Shrinking Violet (1999); Man in the Moon (2001); Waking the Dead (2002); Tales from the Strip (2005); and Hollywood Forever (2012), two extended plays – Cuts (1992); Wasted (1998) as well as a number of live and compilation albums.
The Phil Lewis and Steve Riley version of L.A. GUNS (the other one is led by guitarist Tracii Guns), are releasing their new album "Hollywood Forever" produced by Andy Johns (Led Zeppelin, Cinderella, Van Halen), where former L.A. Guns member Kelly Nickels makes a special appearance playing bass and providing backing vocals."Hollywood Forever" continues with the more contemporary hard rock style of the band's last recording, centered on the big hooks and infectious melodies.The sound is modern and vital, with a vibrant impact. There are glimpses of the sound of old (eighties), mainly on the mid-tempo rockers and the ballads. Phil Lewis' vocals sound great on this new album, and kudos to guitarist Stacey Blades for his fantastic solos and memorable riffs -- his effort helped this album tremendously."Hollywood Forever" opens with the title track, which could have been taken from 'Hollywood Vampires' (1991). It has that early nineties vibe, with a killer riff driving the song into a classic hard rock pandemonium.Follower "You Better Not Love Me" is more melodic, constructed over a simple tadem of guitars, but effective and catchy. "Eel Pie" has a modern sonic approach, a bit boring track, but the band quickly retrieves the grip on the moody "Sweet Mystery"."Vine Street Shimey" is a vintage L.A. Guns effort that could have evolved from the 'Cocked & Loaded' sessions, while "Venus Bomb" has a fast-paced and welcomed gritty attitude.Other highlights are "Dirty Black Night", which has a great riff, furious solo and a heavy groove to it, and "Queenie", a bluesy rocker that works to Lewis' strengths. It's probably one of the best things L.A. Guns has done in the past decade.There's also an interesting cover of "Araña Negra", originally done by the psychedelic rock band Bicicletas, that is completely sung in Spanish.L.A Guns have never done a bad album, and "Hollywood Forever" is not an exception, this is the kind of CD's that puts a wide smile on your face.The band still rocks and on the new album there are very nice songs which remunerate to be listened. A couple of fillers though, but that's inevitable on an album containing 14 tracks.Vocalist Phil Lewis, who owns one of those highly distinctive voices shines here with easily some of his best whaling ever and also the six-string pyrotechnics of Tracy Blades deserve an extra mention.It took mister Lewis some time to fill the rather large sized shoes of founding member Tracii Guns but with Blades (who's guitar playing is less bluesy than his predecessors but in no way less effective) that empty spot is now more than adequately taken.Many releases often loose much of their appeal because of lousy production jobs but L.A. Guns have once again managed to avoid that from happening by employing the services of renowned producer Andy Johns.If you’re already a fan of the band you can fork out the cash with your eyes closed and if you are yet to get your first taste of L.A. Guns, this is the perfect opportunity to find out why these guys managed to stick around for so long.
