WOW, this is awesome! Thanks for posting! I saw Faster Pussycat on The Monsters of Rock Cruise last year. One of the characters on the cruise, Mr. Pink, said he'd seen 'em every time they came to Boston in the last 20 years up to the point of that performance on the boat and that it was the best in all that time.

They were SO good, in fact, I didn't even bother seeing 'em on the cruise this past March for fear of being let down, hahaha!!!

Still, watching the above show does make me pine for the good ol' days with the original line-up and before Taime Downe, the only original member, started donning all his knock off Neo-Nazi regalia.

I saw them recently in Baltimore at the house of rock. I thought they really sounded great. Taime is a bit too cocky though

I saw them a few months back in Tacoma, WA and thought Taime sounded great. He's always been cocky though on stage. That's his persona. Met him afterwards and he was totally cool though! Not cocky at all which surprised me.

Opening for....Whitesnake? I think.
Frankie Banali filling it on the drums, after dumbass drummer Marc Micheals had Heroin Fed Ex'd to him on the road & he got busted.

Yeah, that's totally Taime. On stage, he's a total "Rockstar" -- Totally cocky! Off stage -- Totally nice guy! I've gotten to experience this on The Monsters of Rock Cruise.

He's totally accessible and approachable. Totally ready to engage in a conversation. Totally cool. And funny as h*ll. One thing I noticed about the cruise, which I find quite amusing...

For four days, the passengers (all 3,300 of them) totally revert back to high school mentality. It made me realize something, though -- the Rockstars are permanently stuck in a high school mentality. They never have to grow up. I know the road is hard but it's also fun. These guys haven't a care in the world compared to us working stiffs.

p.s. Hey, Ace, where are ya? Ya know these guyz? Do you or anyone know how come they all quite except Taime?

Ha! Just when I wondered where you are, Ace, you miraculously appeared! Did you hang out with these guys at The Cathouse and did you ever play there in Actress?

That's cool Banali is playin' drums for 'em. Wonder if he'll still be with 'em when they play The Monsters of Rock Cruise in 2014.

MB! Yeah! I know 'em.

The aforementioned idiot drummer & his girlfriend lived in my girlfriend at the time's front room for a while after he got bounced. (She had a habit of bringing home stray animals, this was no different) They ended up runnng her phone bill up. AS EXPECTED.

I knew all the original band members, Walta, the original bass player got kicked out for his addictions right about the time Elektra started showing interest. (he lived maybe 300 feet to the right of my apartment) They replaced him with Kelly Nickles, who then had a horrific motorcycle accident & was replaced with Eric Stacey. Kelly's accident turned out to be a blessing, as his accident recovery time gave L.A. Guns time shuffle it's lineup, with Mick Cripps (who lived in an apartment 4 buildings to the left of mine) moving from bass to rhythm guitar & made a space for Kelly to land. I knew Brent Muscat fairly well, Greg Steele, not so much. As for Banali, his time w/ Pussycat was limited to this tour, as a paid fill in. Quiet Riot was on hiatus, & he was keeping the paychecks rolling by doing this and subbing in W.A.S.P. at the same time.

As for Cathouse,Every Tuesday night, EVERYBODY went to Cathouse! It was the social gathering place of the entire scene. WHen it started in '86, they didn't really have bands that was more of a rock version of a disco, with DJ's spinning tunes. Didn't play there with the band, but did "play" there weekly...

In fact, In the book "Hollywood Rocks!" the cover page for the chapter on Cathouse, I'm spotted at the scene of the crime. Lower left corner...

Always loved these guys. Although all were really good musicians, they never were over the top in showing off "virtuosity",ala a lot of musicians back in the day. They just played down and dirty, no frills, kick your ass rock.

And once again Ace, I'm freakin' envious!!!! LOL

Yeah, Ace. Truly incredible. Others dream of L.A. in the 80's. You lived it AND witnessed it! Thanks for sharing!
