Former Guns N’ Roses Guitarist Tell All

GREG WALLACE
Culture Writer

In 1985, L.A. Guns guitarist Tracii Guns formed a band with his former singer, Hollywood Rose frontman Axl Rose. They would put the two band names together, and Guns N’ Roses was born. So Tracii put the guns in Guns N’ Roses, but his road to stardom would be with a revamped L.A. Guns. In 1988, L.A. Guns’ self-titled, major-label debut album went gold; this came hot on the heels of Guns N’ Roses’ 1987 release, “Appetite for Destruction.”

After 18 years, 16 albums, and a half a dozen different lead singers, Tracii Guns left L.A. Guns in 2003 to start the band Brides of Destruction with bass player Nikki Sixx of Motley Crue. With a new compact disc, “Runaway Brides,” just released, and the single “White Trash” hitting the airwaves, the Brides of Destruction will be tearing up the stage at the Blues Bouquet, 1010 W. Main St., this Tuesday, Nov. 8. So if you like your rock n’ roll old school, down and dirty, get off your ass, and get yourself downtown to check out this show.

Q: What happened with the Guns N’ Roses Revisited World Tour 2005 of Singapore/Thailand you were supposed to do last summer with former Guns N’ Roses drummer Steven Adler?

A: It was originally booked as a tour with ex-Guns guitarist Gilby Clarke. I agreed to do it because they called and offered me a basket of money, but it ended up being cancelled.

Q: Did Axl Rose’s lawyers have anything to say about this matter?

A: I heard they did, because of the use of the Guns N’ Roses logo.

Q: I have heard about another tour being billed as the original L.A. Guns. You will be doing in January of next year with Paul Black singing.

A: Don’t know the status of that right now. I am not sure if the rest of the band — Mick Cripps, Kelley Nichols, Nikki Alexander — wants to do it.

Q: In a sense, will there be two L.A. Guns, with singer Phil Lewis’ band still touring and recording with the name?

A: It will only be for seven shows. I think the fans will know the difference.

Q: Was Axl Rose the original lead singer of L.A. Guns?

A: No, Mike Jargos was; after he went to jail, Axl joined. Mike was a friend of mine from high school; it was Mike who sang on the L.A. Guns’ first EP. Axl went home to Indiana for a while. It was when he came back that we formed the first Guns N’ Roses.

Q: Have you talked to Axl Rose lately?

A: No, I communicate anything I want to say to Axl through Del James*. I write to Del if I need to contact him.

Q: So Axl really has completely shut himself off from the world?

A: He’s a f****** nut.

Q: Have you ever thought of rejoining Guns N’ Roses?

A: Absolutely; when Nikki had to do the Crue thing, I called Del and told him I [had] a year-and-a-half off, but they were not done with the record yet; the timing was not right.

Q: What is the craziest thing you ever saw Axl do?

A: Our friend Michelle was getting ecstasy long before it became a popular drug. Axl is bipolar and he was doing it; it made him mean. The guy I was living with for the past two years was now crazy.
