Justin, I liked your site and enjoyed your reviews. I'll make two comments about Mike Tramp and LA Guns.
First, I think Tramp's decision to ignore White Lion cuts that he recorded into hits is a mistake. While I can salute his wanting to re-make himself, the songs you listed in the review are classics that could easily act as a springboard to the material of the new Mike Tramp. I don't know how many people go to Mike's concert to hear some of his older material---I know I would---but I do know he runs the risk of turning off longtime fans that don't like the new stuff.

With regards to LA Guns, I like Phil Lewis and think Tracii Guns can play the gutiar very well. I just like hooks included, as well. In my way of thinking, the group was on the way up with Hollywood Vampires but never quite got to the top of the hill. Blame grunge or whatever you like, it just seems to me that their departure from that type of writing and playing put them into a very crowded playing field.

Keep up the good work, Justin.
