Glen Buxton, Michael Bruce, Neal Smith, along with Richie Scarlett came together on October 10, 1997 to perform two shows. Referred to as BSBS (Glen called it Bullshit on Bullshit) they first performed on the Stevens and Prewett morning radio show (called Live at Billy Blues) and then on Sunday, October 12th, at a small club in Houston, Texas called Area 51. John Glenn helped out on keyboards. Dennis Dunaway unfortunately was ill and could not make it, so Richie took over on bass.
On the radio show, the band played: ‘I’m Eighteen’, ‘Schools Out’, ‘Under My Wheels’, ‘Billion Dollar Babies’, the intro from ‘Hello Hurray’ and ‘Muscle of Love’
