What is Steve Riley up to?

Postby ren13 » Sun Jul 16, 2017 4:40 pm

Just curious. Is he joining another band? Forming his version of L.A. Guns? Appearing at Comicons around America as the Crypt Keeper?

He has a regular gig on "The Walking Dead" as an extra

They love him because they don't need to spend money and time on makeup.

He's returned home to Giza for some long-overdue rest.

There are former W.A.S.P. members trying to push for a W.A.S.P. reunion involving Blackie, Chris, Steve and others. I am not sure if this will happen.

I've asked this before and nobody has given a real answer.

Was Riley "Blotzed" from LA GUNS, and it's Phil and Tracii from here on out?

Quick summary: Phil and Tracii were doing some one off shows together. Phil jumped ship and joined Tracii's version due to tired of being stuck in sand (shitty booking and no prospect of good new music). Grant joined them. End of short summary.

Phil left Steve's lineup to join Tracii's and brought Michael along with him. Not sure what else there is to tell.

The only thing to add is that both Tracii and Riley own the name LA Guns, so if Riley wants to form his own version he has the right to. Doubt he will, but unlike Blotz at the moment he has that option.

That's what I am curious about. I can't imagine Riley just not caring about the name nor him having another form of income other than performing to fall back on.

Is it safe to assume he wasn't really given a choice?

Wouldnt Riley still get 'x' amount from the new LAG's since he's co owner of the name or this not an issue (different than Blotz)?
The old LAG booking agency ARM Mgt still has the lineup in their catalog of artist (Blotz Ratt has been erased) so they may try to talk Riley into it.

I really can't imagine Steve trying to form a second L.A. Guns. He'd be a fool to try to compete with the current lineup, and he knows it. However, I would think that he is surely making something off of the current lineup due to his part ownership of the name. Kinda like when Tracii was making money off of Phil and Steve's lineup. Not a clue how much it would be though. I'm not sure if it simply includes merch and album sales or if he gets a cut of ticket sales too or what. I wouldn't think it would be enough for him to retire on, but I could be wrong. This is all speculation on my part of course.

Blackie would NEVER, in a million years, go for that. He tried with Tony Richards awhile back and Tony didn't have his chops anymore. Now, Johnny Rod or Chris? They've both been in and out of the band a few times.

I just don't see Blackie giving up even 1% to any old members, and how long to you think Chris would last with that arrangement?

Also I don't think he would want to play Animal (fuck like a beast) again.
