Yours truly and New Times writer, Laine Doss.

When Def Leppard, Poison, and Styx wrote our favorite killer jams of the 80s, they probably hadn't an idea that, 30 years down the line, they'd be a part of one of Broadway's biggest rock/jukebox musicals to ever be performed.

The Rock of Ages cast jammed to a full house of glam metal music lovers at their opening night at the Adrienne Arsht Center last night. VIP ticket holders were strongly encouraged to "dress the part" so they could be a part of the show.

Naturally, Cultist insisted on making its cameo (there was a biggest hair contest, can you blame us?). And while we didn't make it on stage (neither did anyone else,) the hair band rock patrons who did glam up left quite the lasting impression on us.

This guy offered to get up from his chair to take his photo, but we insisted he looked too cool sitting down.
