Classic-Era Bitch Photo Session at Gazzarri's, 1984
This is the most famous and longest-running Classic-Era Bitch lineup. L to R: Robby Settles, Ron Cordy, Betsy, and David Carruth.
I love how Betsy is peeking out from behind her "boys" in this one.
You can't have Robby! He's OUR drummer!
Smile for the camera, guys! Dave, you need to smile too...come on!
Sleazy sleaze...
Bitch with the Man Himself, the late Bill Gazzarri.
