THREE ORIGINAL L.A. GUNS MEMBERS REUNITE FOR 20TH ANNIVERSARY TOUR:
August 1, 2006
L.A. Guns founding member and undisputed leader Tracii Guns has reunited with original members Paul Black and Nickey Alexander to a special series of limited shows to celebrate the band’s 20th anniversary!!!
“It’s been great jamming with the guys I started this journey with 20 years ago,” says Guns. “All the classics sound better than ever and we’ll be performing them all as well as some surprises at these special shows!”
Paul Black and Nickey Alexander are L.A. Guns original vocalist and drummer, respectively. Black co-wrote the band’s fan favorites along with Tracii Guns and Alexander played all drum tracks on the classic self-titled debut album. The band released a CD titled The Black List earlier this year which is a collection of previously unreleased recordings of L.A. Guns standards from 1986 and 1987, and are currently recording new material for release in early 2007.
Tracii hopes to eliminate confusion between his version of L.A. Guns and any other act using the name. “About empty clubs… I have too much respect for the name L.A. Guns to drag it through small clubs and bars, I can do that anytime without dragging and disrespecting the legacy under my own moniker.”
As for Tracii, Paul, Nickey and Jeremy, upon announcing the project were immediately booked onto special event shows such as festivals in Trinidad with SCORPIONS, plus Rio and Brazil with DOKKEN!
“If you want to hear the best L.A. Guns songs performed by the artists who actually wrote them and played authentically by the guitarist how formed the band (not to mention the fact that the band is NAMED AFTER ME) as well as the original vocalist and drummer then please, by all means DO NOT confuse the two groups (although the other group consists of 3 beautiful people). I have surrounded myself with a team of positive, established professionals from management to the band itself who believe in the project and are ready to rock n roll!” Are you ready to rock n roll???????
