L.A. GUNS Singer Says TRACII GUNS 'Can't Keep A Lineup Together For More Than A Week'

L.A. GUNS singer Phil Lewis has slammed the group's former guitarist, Tracii Guns, for "posting nonsense" about his departure from the band and his inability to "keep a line up together for more than a week." Writing to L.A. GUNS' official message board, Lewis said: "Sixteen nuggets (songs) written and recorded as demos like 'Vampire', 'Gypsy Soul', 'Hollywood's Burning', 'Deliverance', 'Shout Out the Night Electric', and 'Skin', to name but a few. We are looking forward to Andy coming by next week after we get back from San Francisco to check out the songs. We are confident we have a fantastic new record and very excited to get started. Right now there are a few distractions that we'll be happy to address later because it's important we stay focused, But I have found that a little anger can be quite motivating at times, It keeps one lean and hungry so with that thought in mind.

"Some of you may know that Tracii is also recording a new one [with BRIDES OF DESTRUCTION]. Andy Johns was also producing that project until for the first time in his forty-year career resigned yesterday for reasons that only Andy can give you. Strange but typical that Tracii can't keep a line up together for more than a week and posting nonsense like he 'never quit L.A. GUNS, just told us to be creative while he was gone.'

"Hey, 'Robin Hood', you and Nicky Beat have one thing in common, you both buckled and bolted prior to important albums so you have no claim to anything Steve has worked hard and honestly to acquire you have no one to blame but yourself.

"Reality check: we both have new records coming out this summer. Let's stop doing dirty laundry in public and concentrate on who's going to make the best album, that's all that ultimately matters.

"I say! Bring it on.

"The non-blonde singer."
