WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. – The Rainbow Bar & Grill celebrated its 42nd anniversary on Sunday, April 13 with a massive party in the parking lot, and of course Metal Sludge was there to scrape up all the grimy details.
What a party it was with live performances by Great White, BulletBoys, Tracii Guns formerly of L.A. Guns, Bitch, Philm, Heretic and Eyes Set to Kill.

This was the Great White version with Terry Ilous singing, not Jack Russell, but most of the other key guys remain, including guitarist Mark Kendall and drummer Audie Desbrow. The band hit the stage close to 11 p.m. or so, and there were a lot of fans really enjoying the proceedings.
Party all the time!

BulletBoys played just before, and leader Marq Torien was his usual great self, finishing with a torrid performance of “Smoth Up” that had the whole place at total attention.’

There were lots of old-time celebs in place, and with all the drinking and partying going on, things were getting pretty loose by the end of the evening.
Long-time band aid Betsy Browning was back in town, and she hosted a big after-party at a double hotel suite just down the road, and a bunch of us partied until the wee hours of morning.
Oni Logan, Alan Krigger and Tomi Rae were all there. We were hurting the next day because all these shenanigans stretched into Monday, but it was worth it!
