Rock Ballad of The Week: LA Guns “I Found You”

15 Comments

Somebody love me
Somebody care
Somebody hold me
When I am scared

Somebody reach out and hold my hand
Somebody somewhere must understand
I found you
You wanted me too

Somebody touch me
Somebody give
Give me a reason
I want to live

Oh, I don’t ask for much
All I want darling is a little trust
I found you
You wanted me too

I found you
You wanted me too
Somebody trust me, Somebody care
I ain’t got much, girl

But I’m willing to share
Oh it’s hard, this world can be so cold
We all need a little love
It’s what makes us whole

I found you
You wanted me too

LEWIS, MARK/BURNS, MIKE

L.A. Guns are an American hard rock band from Los Angeles, California, formed in 1983. As of 2014, the lineup consists of Phil Lewis (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Steve Riley (drums, percussion, backing vocals), Kenny Kweens (bass guitar, backing vocals), and Michael Grant (lead guitar, backing vocals). The first incarnation of the group was formed by Tracii Guns in 1983 and merged with fellow Los Angeles group Hollywood Rose to form Guns N’ Roses in 1984. In 1985, the group was reformed by Guns and singer Paul Black adding Mick Cripps and Nickey Alexander. Black would soon be replaced by former Girl singer Phil Lewis while former Faster Pussycat bassist Kelly Nickels was added to the group. Later, Alexander would be replaced by former W.A.S.P. drummer Steve Riley with this being known as the “classic lineup” of L.A. Guns. They achieved moderate chart success in the late 1980s and early 1990s. However, the group went through numerous lineup changes (with Riley being the most consistent member) and failed to regain mainstream attention.

The “classic lineup” of the group would reunite in 1999 and began recording new material. However, the group continued to change lineups and Guns eventually left to form the hard rock supergroup Brides of Destruction with Nikki Sixx of Mötley Crüe in 2002. L.A. Guns continued without Guns, bringing in guitarist Stacey Blades, however, following his decision to put Brides of Destruction on hiatus in 2006, Guns formed The Tracii Guns Band. The group’s lineup consisted of former L.A. Guns members Black, Alexander as well as Jeremy Guns (though the lineup would eventually change), with the group eventually changing their name to L.A. Guns. Both groups continued to record and tour under the L.A. Guns moniker until 2012, when the Tracii Guns led version of the group disbanded.

To date, L.A. Guns has released ten studio albums – L.A. Guns (1988); Cocked & Loaded (1989); Hollywood Vampires (1991); Vicious Circle (1995); American Hardcore (1996); Shrinking Violet (1999); Man in the Moon (2001); Waking the Dead (2002); Tales from the Strip (2005); and Hollywood Forever (2012), two extended plays – Cuts (1992); Wasted (1998) as well as a number of live and compilation albums.

  1. You keep digging them out. 👍

  2. Yay, great rock ballad, Syl!

  3. These guys are local for me. They are kind of regulars on the scene and I’m actually good friends with Paul Black and saw him just the other week. Exciting to see them written up here.
