Jim Guerinot considers the most successful moment of his professional life to have been the day back in 1982 when he stopped going to work. Oh, he still reports to an office regularly, and he draws a respectable salary: These days, he carries the imposing title of executive director of artist development at A&M Records in Hollywood.

No Doubt, Orange County's hottest-selling rock band, has chosen Jim Guerinot, the county's highest-profile music executive, as its new manager. Guerinot's Laguna Beach-based Rebel Waltz management company also represents the Offspring, another heavy-hitting O.C. rock act, with total worldwide record sales rivaling the 14 million No Doubt reaped with its 1995 release, "Tragic Kingdom." Guerinot also owns a record company, Time Bomb Recordings, financed by the German conglomerate Bertelsmann.

A platinum band makes a lovely 15th anniversary present. That's the gift the Offspring have bestowed on the Orange County punk-alternative scene. The musical movement that began shouting to the world in 1979, when the Crowd became the first Orange County punk band to get airplay on KROQ, has just produced its first million-selling album. If you don't count Nirvana as a punk band, the Offspring's prophetically titled "Smash" may end up the biggest-selling album in punk-rock history.

Dear thief or thieves: No Doubt and the Fullerton Museum Center admire your athleticism, but isn't it about time you returned Gwen Stefani's dress? The red vinyl number that Stefani is pictured wearing on the cover of No Doubt's 1995 album "Tragic Kingdom" was stolen from the Fullerton Museum Center in a midafternoon caper on Jan. 11. It was part of the exhibition "The Orange Groove: Orange County's Rock 'n' Roll History." The dress was displayed behind a 7 1/2 -foot sheet of plexiglass.

Regarding Mike Boehm's tremendously definitive, insightful article "A Compilation Should Be Our Next Offspring" (Aug. 18), I certainly hope I speak for the silent majority of many longtime Orange County punk scene warhorses when I say that never (at least in an O.C. daily) has there ever been a more accurate piece done on our genre than this gem. As a veteran of well over 1,000 punk, roots-rock and blues gigs spanning the last 15 years or so, I feel qualified to say that, for starters, it is very refreshing to know that someone in a position of strength, such as Mike, cares enough to help orchestrate such an evolutionary project as the one he suggested.
