Vocalist JIZZY PEARL Rejoins TRACII GUNS Version Of L.A. GUNS For Summer Tour

Vocalist Jizzy Pearl will rejoin the Tracii Guns-led version of L.A. GUNS for the band's upcoming summer tour.

Commented Tracii: "We [current L.A. GUNS singer Marty Casey and I] were hoping that we would be touring this summer in support of our new record. But no release date has been set so, we decided to do our own thing until that day comes and also that Big Al [rhythm guitarist Alec Bauer] will not be on this L.A. GUNS tour either and is looking forward to the record coming out."

Marty Casey is the former contestant on the hit CBS-TV "reality" show "Rock Star: INXS". The current lineup of L.A. GUNS is rounded out by Jeremy Guns on bass and Chad Stewart on drums.

L.A. GUNS has recently been touring in two competing lineups: one fronted by Tracii Guns, and another led by his Eighties bandmates, singer Phil Lewis and drummer Steve Riley. "Tracii's L.A. GUNS is bogus," Riley recently told Rolling Stone magazine. "People want to hear the songs sung by the original lead singer." Guns countered, "Those guys are a couple of dirty motherfuckers. I hired them for my band — if you get hired as a manager at McDonald's, you don't take over the McDonald's."

Guns told Rolling Stone that he was going to court, and he hoped to get the name back. "I just want to put it to bed and start a new band," he said. "This has proved beyond 'Spinal Tap' ridiculous. The next chapter would be us trying to book a convenience store and battling over the $300 they'd pay us."
