Philip Lewis: "The best advice I've ever been given was to get a vasectomy"

Former Girl and L.A. Guns singer Philip Lewis on not being posh, not holding a grudge and dating a Bond girl

Philip Lewis was playing a rock star called Snake Hips in a Rotterdam fringe theatre group when he met future Girl bandmate Gerry Laffy and decided to pursue the same role in real life. After spells with the New Torpedoes and Bernie Tormé’s Electric Gypsies, in 1987 singer Lewis relocated to America to join L.A. Guns. Now, after 14 years of acrimony, Lewis and Guns guitarist Tracii Guns are reunited on a new L.A. Guns album, aptly titled The Missing Peace.
