Guns album Checkered Past, Tracii Guns’ offer to Phil of 49% ownership in the L.A. Guns band name, his surprising views on the future of L.A. Guns recording, the up-and-coming painter Mason Storm, and Phil’s work helping to posthumously finish Pete Way’s final album. Read Now

Steven St. James has a soulful singing voice that has taken him from Motown’s Hard Rock band Kagny and the Dirty Rats with a pre-BulletBoys Marq Torien, to the band Sarge where he cowrote some of what would become Rough Cutt’s hits with guitarist Chris Hager, to, finally, just in the last couple of years, reuniting with Hager and fronting Rough Cutt itself with a revitalized lineup.
