Were LA Guns big in the US?

Probably never would have heard of them if not for GN'R forums.

I thought most of the hair bands poison, warrant had a much more bigger following then LA Guns.

Tracii Guns is my favourite guitarist and I can't wait to see him live next year in Europe. 

Electric Gypsy, Malaria, Over the Edge and Speed are my favourite songs. 

Brides of Destruction was also cool. The drummer Scot Scoogan is now in L.A. Guns.

I like LA Guns, but seemed to me they were on a similar popularity level as Faster Pussycat, Bullet Boys, White Lion, Enuff Z'Nuff, etc.  Bands like Poison, Cinderella, and Warrant were much bigger.  Even Winger was bigger.  I always felt that LA Guns does get a slight bump in popularity due to Tracii's past association with Axl and early GNR.

Yeap, but their first three albuns are actually pretty good and way better (to me at least) than stuff by Poison, Warrant and the likes. 

I love Cinderellas Heartbreak Station tho.

Have you listened to "The Missing Peace", "Made in Milan" and "The Devil You Know"? Those are two great comeback albums and "Made in Milan" is my favourite live album/concert film from 2018.

Not to get too off topic, but for me Warrant isn't even worth listening to until you get to Dog Eat Dog. That album, Belly II Belly and Ultraphobic are REALLY good albums. 

Cinderella kicked ass their whole career IMO. Poison has one really good record (Crack A Smile) but they've got a bunch of great pop rock songs on the earlier albums.

LA Guns' first 2 albums are phenomenal....they and Love/Hate are the only bands who came close to capturing  the sleaze and attitude GNR had on Appetite

They did.. LA Guns only real hit was "Ballad of Jane"..  The had a couple other songs that were mild rock hits.. Not much radio airplay or anything like that.  Nowhere near as big as Poison or even Warrant.

Cinderella rocked.. "Still Climbing" is a phenomenal album and possibly their best.. They crumbled right after it came out though so it didn't have a chance.
