To solo or not to solo? That is the question British guitarist Laurence Juber frequently has reason to consider. Since 1990 he has released four solo albums for the small, Seal Beach-based Solid Air label. He's also played on recordings and in concert with Al Stewart (with whom he plays Saturday at the Coach House), Alan Parsons, Air Supply and others. And he's done a bevy of studio sessions for movie and TV projects.

Long before rock 'n' roll made the guitar the principal instrument of pop culture, associated with such antics as members of Led Zeppelin riding their motorcycles through the lobby of the Chateau Marmont, L.A. was already in love with the six-string. Generations of singer-songwriters have strummed acoustic guitars in coffeehouses; Les Paul played the inaugural Jazz at the Philharmonic here in 1944; and legions of film studio composers and session musicians have rocked L.A.'s studios since the earliest days of the movie industry.

If the pun is the lowest form of humor, then the creative team behind "It's the Housewives!" are theatrical spelunkers of the most audacious sort. A bit of history. It seems that many of the numbers in this cheerful new musical, now at the Whitefire in Sherman Oaks, were originally performed by the novelty rock 'n' roll group the Housewives, which had a fling with fame a few years back. The songs, co-written by original group member Hope Juber and her husband, Laurence Juber, all deal with various aspects of a housewife's domestic duties and travails -- for example, "Ironing Bored" and "In Sink and at Your Disposal."

One person who isn't surprised about all this talk of a Led Zeppelin reunion is John Mayall, the grand old master of British blues, who said Robert Plant and Jimmy Page might be flying in Zeppelin again for reasons that go well beyond the major payday.

During the last year, we've seen the demise of the Marquie Dinner Theatre in Camarillo, and the temporary--its backers insist--hiatus of Gold Coast Plays in Thousand Oaks. Now comes news that the Arts Council Center, hidden on a hill past the end of Moorpark Road and down a road around a tree in Thousand Oaks, will be abandoned by its occupants within 18 months for a new home. The current center occupies what had been a weekend retreat, built in 1931, for the locally prominent Janss family.

Three 30-ish married women have formed a rock 'n' roll band, The Housewives. The idea smacks of the 1988 TV movie "Rock 'n' Roll Mom" in which Dyan Cannon shucks her apron and curlers and becomes the idol of millions. Only it's not the same. "We're not getting away from dull day jobs," said Hope Juber, who founded the group. "We all live in rock 'n' roll households." All three are married to professional rock 'n' roll musicians. All are seasoned show-biz professionals in their own right.

The death of his wife, Linda, two years ago put a sentimental shade over the often-harsh perceptions of Paul McCartney, who was mocked by many in his post-Beatles years as a purveyor of pop schlock. It was in that muted light that members of the L.A. power-pop extended family affectionately honored Sir Paul's solo and Wings oeuvre on Wednesday in a benefit for breastcancer research at the cozy Morgan-Wixson Theatre in Santa Monica. Performers ranging from '60s cult figure P.F.
