LA_Guns_thmbWhilst South Wales may be a veritable hotbed of musical talent its safe to say that an average Friday night out in Crumlin would not usually be a gig involving 3 sleazy rock 'n' roll bands more suited to the Sunset Strip than Risca Skips.  We sent Johnny H along to investigate just what the hell L.A Guns were doing in the Welsh Valleys, and look what he found out....
