Former GUNS N' ROSES and LA GUNS guitarist TRACII GUNS has joined 1980s rockers Quiet Riot for an upcoming album and tour.

The rocker accepted the role in the band when frontman KEVIN DuBROW called him last month (DEC05) to ask if he'd be interested in a year's commitment.

In a post on his website, Guns says, "I didn't even have to think about it. I committed at least one year of my time to Quiet Riot and possibly more in the future."
