The Rolling Stones have proved nightly during their 33-city concert tour that they are the oldest, grayest, richest and quite possibly Greatest Rock and Roll Band Ever. But it took Los Angeles to show that they also still draw the World's Most Famous Fans.

The band's four-night stand at L.A.'s Coliseum attracted strictly A-list. Madonna and Warren Beatty, Michelle Pfeiffer, Anjelica Huston, David Bowie and Priscilla Presley were not lost in the nightly throng of 72,000 attendees. Even such notorious strobe duckers as Barbra Streisand and Meryl Streep basked backstage in the band's gigawattage.

At the after-show bash at Morton's, invitations were a must. Celebutante Cornelia Guest, who had one, says Guns N' Roses, the Stones' opening act, was mistakenly barred. Also left outside: invite-less Elijah Blue Allman, Natasha Wagner and Leslie (Head of the Class) Bega.

As one partygoer put it, "All those stars weren't coming out to pay homage; they came to see the best there is."
