Post Flier...
I found an old flier of one of my friend's bands from 86/87? back in the day, in an opening slot for Racer X! I remember the show and another at Fenders Ballroom in Long Beach CA. and Paul was such a nice guy to us all. It was a shitty neighborhood and Paul stood outside and talked to us for quite some time. YEAH!!!

I do believe RX was already signed because of the Ticketmaster thing, but I distinctly remember selling pre-sale or pay-to-play tickets. It was no problem with Racer X headlining though, because almost everyone in LA knew how good Paul was and how awesome RX was.

The Goldenwest was a club in Orange County, Ca.

Wow this brings back memories... We always talk about The Whisky, The Roxy, The Country Club, Gazarri's...... But we've forgotten all the horrible dives we had to play too, Fenders Ballroom, Jezebels, Madam Wongs (east & west), The Waters Club, The Knitting Factory, Chex, The Marquee, etc, etc... not to mention all the backyard parties where either a fight would end the gig two songs in or the neighbors would call the cops two songs in and you were lucky if the next day all of your gear was still intact meaning someone didn't steal something or break something... :?

YES!!! The Chuck Water's Club in good ole San Pedro! It was in a shitty part of town and the place was the size of my closet! An incredible dive, but you could see Heretic, Lizzy Borden, or any number of kick ass local acts there every weekend for less than 10 bucks! Forget playing there because it was such a joke; they would present 8 acts and give you literally 20 minutes to play and clear the stage. Many MANY fistfights!
So funny!

I actually liked The Marquee in OC. Off the Strip so not so much ego posing, a nice sized club with one of the better sound systems. Bands like Metallica and Metal Church did 'secret' gigs there quite a bit.

Bogarts in Long Beach! I LOATHED that place! hahahhahah

R.I.P. Southern Cali Clubs. You were gone without a whimper...and we miss you!

No those guy all parted ways before the 90s hit. They were great friends and I still talk to them here and there.

I think I've seen or heard the name floated around somewhere recently but for SURE it's not the same guys.

Thanks for the interest though :D

Guys, please don't get me started -- I played in all those dive bars. If you don't know already, the Marquee is now a strip bar. Here's one word that will make you cringe: Schultz.
