Transcript (excerpts):
-----------------------------

Thanks to Guns N’ Roses' Axl, who so generously invited all of Perkins Palace down to Riki Rachtman’s invitation only New Year’s Eve thang at The Central. The party was very well attended, so much so, in fact, that just about anyone arriving after 8:45 was left to cool his heels outside — including David Lee Roth bassist Billy Sheehan and Billy Idol guitarist Steve Stevens. The president of the Hell’s Angels, however, was given the celebrity treatment. Star Star (consisting of off-duty Duke’s employees) star-ted off the evening, followed by The Antja Mimes from San Francisco, the Love Razors, ex-Candy members Electric Angel, the Poor Boys and Sam Mann and the Apes. Riki popped the cherry of his new band, Virgin; TSOL kicked off the New Year; and somewhere in this mess Guns N’ Roses played a few to the thrill of an audience thick with female mud wrestlers from the Hollywood Tropicana. When the club owners shut down the power promptly at 1:45, they nearly caused a riot, until Axl and Riki got everyone singing “Honky Tonk Woman” a cappella. Then that irrepressible Axl again issued an invitation to the crowd, this time to his posh West Hollywood hotel room. G N’ R leaves next week to tour with Motley Crue; do us a favor, Axldon’t invite Europe home with you.

Miles Copeland, that trusting soul, lent Pam Turbov, Matt Dike and IRS World Media President Paul Colishman one of his mansions — the one that used to be owned by the swashbuckling actor who played Zorro, and which is now to become Bangles HQ — where they hosted a gigantic party that managed to turn away at least as many as were let in. Six or seven hundred people, including Stanley Clarke, George Duke with manager Herb Cohen, Justine Bateman, Sigue Sigue Sputnik’s Neil X, Redd Kross-ites Jeff and Steve McDonald, General Hospital's Ami Dolenz, several KXLU DJs, the Bangles and Michelle Phillips, Lions & Ghosts, Guns N’ Roses and Gene Loves Jezebel converged on Big Daddy Miles’ Hollywood Hills cul de sac, which was so swarmed with limos none could get in or out. Anna Abbott, guarding the door while four Venice Beach bodybuilders guarded her body, was inundated with every story in the book; some of the gatecrashers she turned away even managed to scale the 20-foot cement walls into the patio — and rescale them each time they were thrown out.

Thurs., Jan. 14-Hard-driving soul with an almost metallic edge, The Bandaloo Doctors, Bonnie Bramlett's new all-star band, have been chalking up lofty praise from everybody who's seen them, despite their very short existence; formerly the Drunk F***s, The Drunks (now that’s class!), a jam band featuring members of Guns N' Roses, as well as some other rockers, set loose on the songbooks of Aerosmith, AC/DC, etc.; some killer rock & roll that's not gonna get a label from Puss N' Boots.
