KNAC.com has issued an interview with LA GUNS singer Paul Black, conducted by Deb Rao. In the interview Paul discusses the 20th Anniversary Tour of LA Guns, the current controversy surrounding the two "LA Guns", working with Tracii Guns, what transpired 20 years ago with Polygram Records, and future touring plans of the original LA Guns.
The following is an excerpt:
Q: What was your reaction to the music industry when this all went down? Were you disheartened to learn that the band you were in for three years, had taken on a whole new image?
A: "I was very disillusioned by the music business. They took something of mine that I loved, put a dollar value on it, stole it, and mutilated it. I don't know that the image was all that different. We had already defined a lot of what made the band popular. Skinny, black hair, make-up, leather, scarfs, jewelry. When I left, I think they looked specifically for someone to step in and fill my shoes that would keep up that same image."
