D’Molls at D’Whisky: Not every hair band rose to the heights of Motley Crue, or Poison, or even Warrant. But some of the others managed to earn a reputation for putting on a great show and D’Molls were one of them. See for yourself. Dark Horse Rising, Guitar & Whiskey Club, American Jetset, the Rumours, TREVORS EVERYWHERE and Sex Appeal also perform.
The band seems to occasionally bill itself at D’Molls 777 nowadays, a reference to fan-fave track “777.” What that means about the current lineup we’re not sure. But original frontman Desi Rexx is still around.
D’Molls at D’Whisky: The event takes place at 6 p.m. on Friday, July 29 at the Whisky A Go Go.
D’Molls, originally known as The Chicago Molls, were an American heavy metal and glam metal band, featuring lead vocalist/guitarist Desi Rexx, bassist Lizzy Valentine, guitarist S.S. Priest, and drummer Jim Bashaw. In 1985, Billy Dior replaced Bashaw and the band relocated to Los Angeles, California to pursue a recording contract. Priest was still under contract with his other band Diamond Rexx, and could not follow the band there and was replaced by another guitarist, Sean Freehill. Priest rejoined the band in 1986, after they signed a recording contract with Atlantic Records. The video for “777” received some airplay on MTV, but album sales failed to prosper. In 1990, the band released their second album, Warped, but their singer quit before the promotion campaign got off the ground. The group disbanded shortly thereafter and did not release another album until 1996, when Delinquent Records featured the group’s third and final album, Beyond D’Valley Of D’Molls, which featured three live tracks as well as previously unreleased studio recordings. There also exists a best of, compilation CD, The Best of Everything, which came out in 2007.”
