After years of what seemed like an endless uphill struggle, brothers Victor and Adrian Monroy can finally boast that they make their living playing rock 'n' roll. 'Thank God we started making some money with our live gigs," says 23-year-old Victor, whose band, Pastilla, has forged an excellent reputation within the Southern California rock en espanol scene. This year has been a busy one for the band, which plays Thursday at JC Fandango in Anaheim.

Got a sweet tooth? "We are just like a pastilla, you know, like Pez," said Victor Monroy, a.k.a. Chicles, front man of L.A. rock en espanol band Pastilla. The 21-year-old singer-songwriter likens his music to candy because his band's pop-flavored punk goes down so easily. "Our music is mostly about having fun," Chicles said just before jumping into the pool at his manager's Long Beach home on a recent warm afternoon.

A 15-year-old youth being chased by police as he drove a stolen four-wheel-drive truck at 80 m.p.h. ran a red light early Monday and smashed broadside into a compact car that carried a Santa Ana couple, police said. The truck struck with such force, police said, that the couple inside the car were thrown onto the pavement at the intersection of Fairview and First streets. Victor Manuel Monroy-Barrales, 32, died shortly after the crash; his wife, Maria Garcia Calderon, 33, was critically injured.
