Axl Rose isn't the only member of Guns N' Roses to exhibit outrageous behavior offstage.
The owner of New York City's Scrap Bar, a rock-and-roll haunt in Greenwich Village, tells us that on the night of April 3, Guns N' Roses lead guitarist Slash (real name Saul Hudson) showed up at the bar with porn star Savannah on his arm. If only she had stayed on his arm.
According to bar owner Stephen Trimboli, Savannah and Slash engaged in full hit whoopee—to use the Latin phrase—"right there at the bar, in full view of everyone.'' Trimboli says that afterward Savannah got up and made her way to a waiting limousine outside. Slash followed her, says Trimboli, "with a very silly look on his face."
A MARTINEZ MAY BE PRACTICING LA LAW
We're hearing from a source that L.A. Law cocreator Steven Bochco, who recently resumed producing the series after it slipped with the critics and in the ratings, wants to heat things up by adding A Martinez to Law's ensemble east, probably next season.
Martinez, playing Cruz Castillo, has been the reigning Hispanic stud on the soap opera Santa Barbara for eight years.
CHER MAINTAINS HER MOTORING STANDARDS
When the Disney Co. sent a planeload of celebrities (Don Johnson, Melanie Griffith, Candice Bergen, Tina Turner, Eddie Murphy, et al.) to Marne-la-Vallée, France, for the opening a week ago of its $4 billion-plus Euro Disneyland, the company arranged for their travel to and from hotels and the site in Mercedes sedans.
Cher, however, preferred seeing the outskirts of Paris from the backseat of a limo. At first Disney squawked, claiming there were no limos in France. Only when Cher's people squawked back did Disney manage to find one.
DAN QUAYLE'S NO YANKEE DOODLE
Quayle hunting: When representatives of the National Kidney Foundation's New York—New Jersey chapter contacted Dan Quayle's office to request a doodle by the Vice President for a recent charily auction of celeb drawings, they were sent an autographed photo instead. The accompanying letter noted regretfully that "due to his hectic schedule the Vice President cannot afford you a doodle."
EAT ALONG WITH ARNOLD
What's in a name? In Arnold Schwarzenegger's ease, eggs, tomatoes, onions, green and red peppers, potatoes and mushrooms, with cheese grits on the side. That, curious reader, is what you'll get if you order Arnold's Omelette off the brunch menu at the Terminator's new Santa Monica restaurant, Schatzi on Main.
When Schatzi (a German term of endearment) starts serving dinner (Arnold is waiting for a liquor license), its menu will feature three items requested specifically by Arnold and his Mrs., Maria Shriver. Maria wanted chicken pot pie ($12.75), while Arnold insisted on Wiener schnitzel with spätzle ($16.95) and rack of lamb with roasted potatoes ($23.50).
