Last night's star-studded book launch was also attended by Julian Lennon and Children of the Son's frontman.
Some bonafide rock royalty were out in force in LA last night, to mark the release of designer John Varvatos' first Rock In Fashion book.
'Rebel Yell' singer Billy Idol and legendary snapper Mick Rock were the special guests for the event on Melrose Avenue, with son-of-a-Beatle Julian Lennon also in attendance.
Representing the Irish was Jack Matthews of Children of the Son, who have just completed recording in LA with Warren Huart, producer with Aerosmith and The Fray. The 15-year-old singer has one of the most extraordinary voices in rock, frequently eliciting comparisons to Robert Plant in his Led Zep heyday.
"It's been a real love affair between the band and LA," one industry insider told Hot Press. "There is a feeling that this young Irish band can go all the way. The response from musicians and from the creative community in LA has been fantastic. A number of record companies are already on the case. The question is: which one is going to be lucky enough to get them to sign on the dotted line."
