Tracii Guns fired about the out-of-court resolution of the legal dispute over the rights to the L.A. GUNS name.
He and Phil Lewis are continuing going under the name of L.A Guns, while Steve Riley and his bandmates from the other version of L.A. GUNS will now operate under the new name RILEY’S L.A. GUNS.
He spoke with TotalRock, where he said:
“We just settled this lawsuit a couple of days ago. And I’ll let the press release explain how it’s gonna work from here on out. But nobody can just be L.A. GUNS except me forever. And it worked out… I would have liked to have taken it further, but that motherf**ker has no money.
“All this thing has been for 15 years is a complete negative waste of time and energy. But I ended up in a position where I could go after the guy. And it was the right thing to do. You can’t let people take advantage of you. And that’s kind of classic in my life. I’m really generous with people, and I wanna see everybody succeed. But if you take advantage of me, man… Sometimes I wish there were no laws. Because some people are so selfish.”
