Former Guns N' Roses guitarist Tracii Guns formed the band L.A. Guns in 1987 along with ex-Girl vocalist Phil Lewis, former W.A.S.P. drummer Steve Riley, bassist Kelly Nickles and guitarist Mick Cripps. Their self-titled debut came in 1988, yet it wasn't until 1989 that they hit big with 'The Ballad of Jayne.' The band laid low for several years, then reemerged in the mid '90s with 'Vicious Circle.'
