Assaulting Adler

Steven Adler, the original drummer of Guns N’ Roses, tells of his experiences with the band in his autobiography My Appetite for Destruction: Sex, And Drugs, And Guns N’ Roses. The book also deals with Adler’s early introduction to rock and disco in the Los Angeles nightclubs run by the gangster Eddie Nash.

These nightclubs, including the Starwood and Odyssey, were frequented by gays as well as young teens preyed upon by many of these gays. Adler, for one, relates how he was raped.

Here, Jamie Dlux revisits this long-ago milieu. We are introduced to the varied players, nightclub staffers and musicians who partied until dawn at the Nash clubs.

If you’ve seen Paul Thomas Anderson’s film Boogie Nights, the character played by Alfred Molina was said to be inspired by Nash.  Nash was at one time one of California’s largest cocaine dealers. In the film, he’s coked out of his mind, dancing around in a robe and Speedos to Rick Springfield’s “Jessie’s Girl.”

And here, Alfred Molina gets cut short while enjoying a post-midnight boogie.

Climate Junkies Assail Opera

Turdstock ’23

So you’ve ravaged your Thanksgiving turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie, and you’re settling in for a slow-moving afternoon or quiet evening. You’ve got time on your hands, time to check out Turdstock ’23, contemporary Nashville’s answer to Woodstock.

It’s not quite a three- or four-day gig, but the show brings together nearly four hours of music by some of Nashville’s most energetic — and patriotic –performers. These are the entertainers who aren’t threatening to join Bruce Springsteen and Cher overseas, but instead, they’re advocating the re-election of President Donald Trump to clean up the Democrats’ dirty, corrupt and pedophile-laden government.

John Rich organized Turdstock and leads off the event, alongside Big Kenny. They’re joined by a welter of talented singers, musicians and song writers, among them, Jeffrey Steele, Larry Gatlin Jr., Carmen Thompson and the notorious Catturd. There’s enough music here, you can return for seconds on Friday, and roll it out again all weekend.
