Hollywood Forever is an album by the Phil Lewis-fronted version of L.A. Guns. The album is produced by Andy Johns, and is on Cleopatra Records.[1][2] The album is available as a CD, vinyl record and digital download.[1]

Early work, including pre-production and songwriting, on the album began in late 2011, with recording beginning in early 2012 in Los Angeles.[3] The album title was chosen by Phil Lewis to express the band's connection to the Los Angeles area in general and Hollywood in particular.[3]

The album was one of the final albums to feature production work from Andy Johns, who died in the spring of 2013.
