Video: PHIL LEWIS And TRACII GUNS Perform Together In Agoura Hills

L.A. GUNS singer Phil Lewis was joined on stage by the band's former guitarist Tracii Guns (now of GUNZO and DEVIL CITY ANGELS) this past Friday, May 22 at The Canyon in Agoura Hills, California. Fan-filmed video footage of the joint performance can be seen below.

In a recent interview with the "Another FN Podcast With Izzy Presley", Tracii stated about playing with Phil Lewis again: "Phil and I really never lost… we never really had any real bad blood. I mean, we had some cat fights and stuff like that… [But playing together is] so familiar to both of us that it's very comfortable and there's no hesitation or wondering what the other guy is gonna do, or anything like that, because we've done it so much. [When we first shared the stage again] It had literally been eleven years since we had been on stage together. It just felt normal. It felt like, 'Hey, we're doing L.A. GUNS music, shit we wrote together, and we're really good at L.A. GUNS music.' [Laughs]"

He continued: "There's kind of a little plan right now that him and I… actually, him and GUNZO… we may actually do something out of the country for a minute together. So there's all kinds of possibilities. But the reality of any type of what Phil and I would call an L.A. GUNS 'reunion,' that probably won't ever happen. But there's a good chance that you'll see even possibly new music from Phil and I. Certainly, at some point, as long as we're living, we'll definitely be on stage again at some point together."

Tracii Guns in 2013 ruled out the possibility of a reunion with Phil Lewis and L.A. GUNS drummer Steve Riley. He said: "My heart's just not into it, man, you know. I was so young when we did that. Your tastes just change. And I played those songs for so many years. I just don't really see it happening. I don't know, really, why I would do it, you know what I mean? It's not like the band is big enough to have, like, a comeback where it would make some crazy financial sense or something like that. But musically, I think I've played those songs enough in my life."

Tracii started L.A. GUNS while still in high school in 1982. The original singer, Michael Jagosz, was replaced by Axl Rose. Signed to PolyGram in '87, the band's self-titled debut, with Phil Lewis replacing Rose, sold over a million copies, as did "Cocked and Loaded" (1989) and "Hollywood Vampires" (1991).
