Bullet Boys and Dirty Penny at the ROX in Vegas 11/9/07!!






Friday nite the 9th of Nov I went out to show at the ROX that I had only heard about that day; The Bullet Boys with a Santa Cruz band called Dirty Penny! I wasnt expecting a show like what I was about to see,but I was damn sure happy that I brought my camera!!!It felt like the 80's were back that nite and seeing Dirty Penny with the old Crue style spikey shags was a kick in the ass!! I told them they stole my hair and that they reminded me of Veins Of Jenna. They seemed cool with the comparison. They looked like a band right off the sunset strip in the early 80's that would have handed you a flyer to a future show and asked you for your number!! They looked so glam!!! It was the Sleaze patrol all over again!!! : )
The nite started with a band that I dont remember the name of,(so sorry guys)because I was late getting there. But after getting a few libations in me to get me started up,(Pomagranate rockstar and vodka just rules!!) the show really got kicked off when Marq Torien came out and I saw he cut off his long locks and went back to being a brunette..I also realised that he looked damn good for an 80's rock legend! He was also sporting a guitar, something I have never seen him do before. Have seen these guys in 89 and around 99 or so so it wasnt my first go round with the BB's. I also saw that Marq was the only remaining original memeber of the band. He has a new KILLER guitar player named Charlie Wayne Morrill, that until I googled him today, I didnt even realise who is was. He was in one of the premire glam bands inthe early 80's called Hawk. He is also in Iron Horse. The guys just rules and he is hot! Then he has Steve Bray,on bass, from old Luv Hunter days back in 88 when I first moved here! That blew me away cause I havn't seen him in years! The drummer is Danny Seven who is a kick-ass drummer and works in an animal shelter when he isn't on tour. It takes a special person to do that job! He just rawks!
When they started playing, its like they just BLEW up!! They had so much energy and vitality and Marq and Charlie were on FIRE!! They just blew me away!! They played a pretty killer set of oldies but nothing was better than when they played old fave "Smooth up in Ya!"We went wild with all kinds of rocking out and dancing to this smoltering song that used to get the girls all hot and bothered back in the day when we watched Marq on MTV!!! That was a HOT video and there wasnt many hotter then Marq Torien!! He still smokes! But my eyes were on his guitarist Charlie that was melting me to the core...he is amazing! That was a kick-ass set and I was lucky enough to hang with the Boys this weekend and meet their manager Doobie,who really loves my massage now. I hope I helped the guy with his bad back. These guys are on a van tour and that is rough,but they dont complain..its all in the name of ROCK!!! Go see them if you can on their tour!!! These guys are a great,funny bunch of characters!! Make sure you buy them a drink and tell Charlie I said " Aint it fun?" Hahaha!
