L.A. GUNS Drummer STEVE RILEY Interviewed In Bulgaria

Metal Hangar 18 conducted an interview with Steve Riley (L.A. GUNS, ex-STEPPENWOLF, ex-W.A.S.P.) an hour before L.A. GUNS' May 6, 2010 concert at The City Square in Kavarna, Bulgaria (with 1,800 people in attendance). Watch the chat below.

The band's setlist was as follows:

01. No Mercy
02. Gypsy Soul
03. Sex Action
04. Never Enough
05. Over The Edge
06. Wheels of Fire
07. One Way Ticket
08. Some Lie 4 Love
09. Sleazy Come Easy Go
10. Hellraiser's Ball
11. One More Reason
12. Electric Gypsy
13. Ballad of Jayne
14. Rip and Tear


15. I Wanna Be Your Man
16. Kiss My Love Goodbye

The Phil Lewis-fronted version of L.A. GUNS last year parted ways with bassist Scotty Griffin and replaced him with Kenny Kweens (BEAUTIFUL CREATURES).

L.A. GUNS' latest album, "Tales from the Strip", was released in August 2005 in the U.S. via Shrapnel Records. The CD, which was produced by Andy Johns (LED ZEPPELIN, THE ROLLING STONES), was lyrically inspired by a historically significant rock scene that L.A. GUNS had a strong hand in creating.

Phil Lewis' L.A. GUNS is not to be confused with the Tracii Guns-led version of the group, which is also continuing to record and perform under the L.A. GUNS moniker.
