Is the Tracii Guns-led version of L.A. Guns coming to an end? Or is Guns splintering off into a side project with the band’s current singer?
There have been two different versions of L.A. Guns existing simultaneously for a few years: singer Phil Lewis’s version and guitarist Tracii Guns’ version. The latest vocalist in Tracii’s version is Rockstar: Supernova runner-up Dilana Robichaux, as we recently reported. Now Tracii and Dilana have announced a new project called Pretty F’n Ugly (“The F’n is silent,” according to the singer), and Dilana has hinted that it might mean the end of Tracii’s LA Guns.
“The whole idea of this project is for Tracii and I to start a new musical journey together,” Dilana says. “Fresh, new music. A new beginning. Life is about change and growth. L.A. Guns has and always will be great and a part of Tracii’s life. It’s a moment in time that molded him into the amazing musician he is today. But, it’s soon to be the end of an era.”
The new band has set up a Facebook page, where Lewis has popped up to wish Tracii and Dilana well in their new endeavor.
