Video footage of L.A. GUNS performing the song "Wheels Of Fire" on July 31 at the Whisky A Go Go in West Hollywood, California can be seen below (filmed by Jake Perry).
The current lineup of L.A. GUNS includes singer Phil Lewis (GIRL, TORME), guitarist Michael Grant (ENDEVERAFTER, ASSASSINS), drummer Steve Riley (W.A.S.P., STEPPENWOLF) and bassist Kenny Kweens.
L.A. GUNS announced in September 2014 that bassist Scotty Griffin and the band "decided to part ways," adding that the group was welcoming back Kenny Kweens as Scotty's replacement.
Several hours after his exit from L.A. GUNS was made public, Griffin took to his Facebook page to refute the band's claim that the split was amicable. He said: "I was kicked out, plain and simple. Or, as it was exactly worded, 'Phil has decided the band is going to move forward without you.'"
He added: "Why it was posted as 'Scotty Griffin and the band have decided...' is beyond me. I was never part of this decision. I never knew this decision was being made, and I never wanted, nor ever said I wanted to leave L.A. GUNS."
Due to "extenuating circumstances and musical differences," guitarist Stacey Blades announced his departure from L.A. GUNS in December 2012.
Blades played on four L.A. GUNS albums: "Rips The Covers Off" (2004), "Tales Trom The Strip" (2005), "Loud And Dangerous: Live From Hollywood" (2006) and "Hollywood Forever" (2012). He also authored a book, "Confessions Of A Replacement Rockstar", which was published in 2009.
L.A. GUNS' last studio album, "Hollywood Forever", was released in June 2012 via via Cleopatra Records. The CD was recorded with legendary producer, and old friend, Andy Johns, who had previously worked with LED ZEPPELIN, THE ROLLING STONES, CINDERELLA and VAN HALEN, and who collaborated with L.A. GUNS on their previous three albums.
