ROCK 'N' BOWL WILL NEVER DIE: The L.A. rock community is collectively nursing bowlers' elbows after two major bowling parties last weekend. First, there was Rick Rubin's combination wake for the term Def and birth of the new name for his company, American Recordings. With the mob scene at the Shatto 39 lanes--including Rosanna Arquette, the band Raging Slab and even Heidi Fleiss (at least those were the rampant rumors)--the actual sport quickly degenerated into inebriated stunt bowling, with people sending two or three balls down lanes at a time as the label's Red Devils played rockin' blues numbers.

The bowling was much more serious at KISS-man Gene Simmons' 44th birthday party at Jerry's Deli and Sports Center in Studio City. The invited guests--ranging from a gaggle of porn movie stars to paparazzi -hounded Tom and Roseanne Arnold--competed for customized balls awarded for the top male and female games. The winners: Faster Pussycat singer Taime Down with a 199 (barely beating out Ahmet Zappa) and groupie-turned-author Pamela Des Barres with a 189.
