Guns in 1987, as part of the band's "classic" lineup alongside guitarists Tracii Guns and Mick Cripps, vocalist Phil Lewis and bassist Kelly Nickels. He appeared on the albums L.A. Guns, Cocked & Loaded, and Hollywood Vampires. Riley was fired from the band in 1992. He returned in 1994. In 2006, there were two L.A. Guns lineups, Phil Lewis's and Tracii Gun's.
