LA Guns is a hard rock band that came out of Los Angeles in 1983. Through much of their career, two rival versions of the band have existed, and the origins of Guns N' Roses lies within the LA Guns membership. The first incarnation disbanded in '85.
Reuniting in '99, the constant shift of personnel continued, but they managed nine studio albums, including "Heavy Crown" in '09. Two albums in '88 and '89 went gold, "La Guns" and "Cocked and Loaded."
