The band formed back in the 70s making a name for themselves on the LA scene but ultimately not making it big. Despite this their songs have been covers by the likes of Kiss and Alice Cooper, and Igg Pop stating on the record: “I didn’t used to like The Hollywood Stars, I used to like The New York Dolls. Then I heard The Hollywood Stars play ‘Satisfaction’. Now I wanna f**k ‘em.” 

Having reformed in recent times, their popularity renewed, and a live album out last year, the good times look to continue for The Hollywood Stars.
