L.A. Guns, 'Sticky Fingers'

Woo boy! L.A. Guns have just released the audio of "Sticky Fingers," another track off their upcoming album The Missing Peace. That record comes out October 6.

This is another good one. The Missing Peace is going to be very strong I think. Phil Lewis and Tracii Guns belong together, for better or worse. Enjoy.

Solid song. And you gotta love that distinct Tracii Gunns guitar tone, right back where it belongs! Can't wait for this. 🤘

I saw LA Guns at Bogart's in Cincinnati last weekend. This was the first time I saw Phil and Tracii together, though I had seen both of their versions of the band in years past (Tracii had Marty Casey with him when I saw him). Phil and Tracii together was a far superior show to either of their cobbled-together lineups. These two guys are LA Guns, and like you said they belong together.

I loved "Speed" (with the exception of the F-bombs), and "Sticky Fingers" is every bit as strong. During the show, they played "Speed" and a slower song from the new album called "The Flood Is The Foult Of The Rain" (according to Wikipedia, not sure if that's misspelled or a British spelling).

I'm really looking forward to "The Missing Peace." I just order Quiet Riot's "Road Rage," and while it has its moments, overall it is not very strong. But Phil and Tracii (and Michael Grant from Endeverafter) seem to really be bringing back the sound and style we love.

Right now . . . Steve Riley is trying to reach Lawless on his pager.

Lewis and Guns do seem to be a perfect fit. Nice to see that they could make this happen. But I have to ask again: does anyone know what went down, with Lewis and Guns getting together again and Riley getting the cold shoulder? You would think more details would be out there on the interwebs.

I'm sure that has to do with $, Him. They would hafta pay him more than they would some fill in.

There is another song to hear from this on Youtube also, called "The Devil Made Me Do It".
It's a great song as well!

KILLER! This maybe THE Greatest Glam Metal Comeback Album of All Time, and that includes the stellar "Infestation" by RATT from a few years back.

Very funny HIM, regarding Riley calling Lawless on his PAGER, hahaha!!!

Actually, BK, it's NOT just money that has Riley as the odd man out in this reunion. Watch the old interviews on "That Metal Show" with Guns blasting Riley and then the one with Riley and Lewis about Guns. Glad to see Guns and Lewis were able to hug it out to deliver what's shaping up to be one of THE BEST Rock & Roll albums of the decade.

As I've mentioned before over the years, I saw the first two versions of L.A. Guns BEFORE Guns and Lewis parted ways ... The first time in L.A. in '87 at The Country Club on a lark (Saw their ad in "L.A. Rocker" weekly) when they first hit the scene. I then saw them soon after in Maryland, once at Hammerjack's in Baltimore and then at The Cat Club and The Ritz in NYC. Everyone of those shows were incredible with Guns ENORMOUS guitar virtuosity on full display.

I look forward to catching them on the upcoming Monsters of Rock Cruise. Yes, they're THAT Good that I would even be willing to tolerate Teslug for the chance to see these guys performing together again.

p.s. Also, a quick nod to second guitarist Michael Grant, a super nice guy and extraordinary guitar slinger in his own right, who, I believe is earning his stripes by sticking around in this current line-up!

It is a good song and "Speed" is also. I do hope that these are not the final mixes as the vocals are too strong in the mix. Lower the vocals, bring the bass and drums forward and the guitar as well to a lesser extent and you have a damn fine song. Traci and Phil belong together as this shows. Their first three records are killer. I think they lost a few fans with Hollywood Vampires but I love that record and prefer that one overall.
