"We should do this once a month," said Stan Lynch of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, after the band launched the Viper Room, the Sunset Strip club co-owned by Johnny Depp. Also on the bill: Evan Dando, a vibrant Maria McKee and Shane McGowan, who raised $14,000 for the Starlight Foundation, a charity for terminally ill children. "I love the idea of clubs in the '30s and '40s," said Depp. "It's some of the only culture we have in Hollywood."
