L.A. Guns Part Ways With Bassist

L.A. GUNS frontman Phil Lewis has issued the following update:

"Dear friends, it is with enormous regret we announce the departure of our good friend Adam Hamilton [bass]. Adam has been offered a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to pursue his dreams as a producer. From this point on he will become a full-time studio rat chained to a recording console but I suspect he will still wear a bit of eyeliner. Adam, we wish you well mate, you have stuck with us through very good and a few extraordinary bad times, you will always be a brother and we all thank you for the amazing music you have contributed, Thank you for your commitment to the band and the fans, it's been nothing but pleasure touring the world with you, Your sharp sense of humor that got us through some very sketchy times will be missed. You can show off all those backstage laminates with pride in your studio and know that you are the very essence of rock and roll and a lifetime behind a mixing board will never take that away from you. We all eagerly look forward to the sonic delights you are soon to create and give you and your family our blessings and want you to know you will always be a part of our L.A. GUNS family."

Rose Tattoo's Pete Wells Dies

Christie Eliezer of Billboard.com reports: Pete Wells, slide guitarist and one of the founders of Australian power blues band Rose Tattoo, died in a Sydney hospital early yesterday morning (March 27). He was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2002 and had spent the last five weeks in the hospital. According to friends, he was due to turn 60 this year.

Wells emerged in 1966 playing bass in the Brisbane blues band Head. He moved to Sydney and joined heavy metal band Buffalo. The band's "Volcanic Rock" was the first Australian metal album to go gold; the act also scored an overseas deal with Vertigo.

In 1976 he switched to slide guitar, formed the seminal Rose Tattoo and went on to hire lead singer Angry Anderson. They became one of Australian's main street outlaw bands and found a loyal following in the United Kingdom, Germany and France. Wells' original concept for the band was for all the members to sport bright orange hair, tattoos, shaved eyebrows and black T-shirts and jeans.

Rose Tattoo's influence later became apparent on U.S. rock combos like Guns N' Roses, who covered its track "Nice Boys (Don't Play Rock'n'Roll)," Motley Crue and L.A. Guns.

Australian acts such as the Beasts of Bourbon, Paul Kelly and Tim Rogers staged benefit concerts for Wells in Sydney and Melbourne last September. A memorial service will be held Friday (March 31) in Sydney.
