Cheetah Chrome and band, which included his colleague Johnny Blitz on drums from their original Dead Boys sojourn together played a sold-out Viper Room 7.15.17 jam-packed with appreciative fans. Singer Jake Hout, formerly of the Undead Boys tribute band performed shenanigans galore with the microphone and in the crowd while warbling assorted Dead Boys' classics. Note crowds in club mirrors below...
"You don’t 'replace' Stiv Bators. He was a trailblazer. An inventor. His music, aesthetic, life and gorgeous mug helped to define our subculture with reverberations still ringing today. An icon irreplaceable. We lost the living man himself a long time ago but we never lost the music. Cheetah and Blitz are still here and they’ve still got it! That’s what this is all about. You don’t 'replace' the past. You honor it. You hold it up in revere so the spirit lives on."- Jake Hout
  "It was so much fun being out there with you and everyone. To me it is something holy." 
- Ames Flames, Cheetah Chrome tech, singer for "Sonic Reducer" in latest Cheetah gigs.
 Opening act Junkyard (1980s and beyond popular L.A. hard rockers, just returned from Europe tour with Little Caesar) insured a memorable evening. Above, singer David Roach.
