Additionally, Tracii has issued the following statement:

"It has come to my attention that my old band mates Phil Lewis and Steve Riley are desperately trying to wage a campaign to have LA Guns shows cancelled. Although it is not an ideal situation, I think that by now everyone is aware that there are two versions of LA Guns performing out on the road. I have repeatedly tried to responsibly fix the situation, but obviously some old wounds never heal - mine included. Rather than insist on the other version of LA Guns immediately cease all activities, I have for whatever reason allowed them to continue to exist for the simple reason that I think the world is big enough for both of us. I also think that they, like all of us, have a right to make a living."

"Now I have learned that Phil has made it a personal goal to basically attack the version of LA Guns that features me. They have sent false statements to several promoters saying that I am not performing with the 'real' LA Guns, etc. Whichever version of LA Guns the fans favor, I would hope that everyone knows that this is completely ridiculous. With all due respect to their contributions to LA Guns history, Phil and Steve were not even the original members of the band. Now they have the balls to say that I am not the 'real' version of LA Guns? I guess that is what I get for trying to mind my own business and be a good guy."

"We have played all over the world this year to great crowds including Trinidad, Argentina, two tours of Europe, three US tours, Korea, and now we are looking forward to playing in 2008 all over and will start the new year on a west coast run with SKID ROW."
