L.A. Guns at London's Islington Academy - live review
Venue: London Islington Academy
Eighties hard rockers come bearing snakeskin and a theremin
“Whaddya think of the whistle? Is it too much?” says grinning Guns frontman Philip Lewis, a California resident since the mid-1980s but reverting to Cockney rhyming slang in his home city. Resplendent in a snakeskin suit and ‘Hustler’ T-shirt – later swapped for a black leather outfit, complete with flying goggles and riding crop – Lewis is now 60 and still looks and sounds like a rock star.
