L.A. Guns Contemplating A Full-Blown Blues Album
February 26, 2015
L.A. Guns are planning to enter the studio later this year according to frontman Philip Lewis.
“Looks like we’re heading back into the studio later this year after touring,” Lewis said during an online chat at L.A. Guns Facebook Fan Group. “We have a killer concept but I can’t tell too much just yet, someting we’ve never done before. It’s gonna be a 100% blues record in honour of Andy Johns — a cross between White Stripes and Led Zeppelin.”
Andy Johns produced several L.A. Guns’ albums — ‘Waking The Dead’, ‘Tales From The Strip’, and their most recent studio effort ‘Hollywood Forever’. The famed producer had worked with countless artists, including Led Zeppelin, Van Halen, Rolling Stones, Cinderella, Killer Dwarfs, Loudness and Tangier prior to his 2013 death.
Lewis promised that the album would sound fantastic with the new L.A. Guns line-up, which currently includes drummer Steve Riley, guitarist Michael Grant, and returning bassist Kenny Kweens.
Lewis also addressed a few other topics, including KISS bassist Gene Simmons’ comment that rock was dead, by saying, “Gene needs to keep doing what he does best — making sex tapes.” The singer also said that no Girl tours are slated anytime soon but that he’d be ‘game’ to play with his former band again and that his autobiography is ‘coming along’.
