D'Molls, originally known as The Chicago Molls, were a band featuring lead vocalist/guitarist Desi Rexx, bassist Lizzy Valentine, guitarist S.S. Priest, and drummer Billy Dior. In 1985, the band relocated to Los Angeles to pursue a recording contract. Guitarist S.S. Priest was still under contract with his other band Diamond Rexx, and could not follow the band to Los Angeles. Priest was replaced by another guitarist, Sean Freehill. S.S. Priest would rejoin the band in 1986, after they signed a recording contract with Atlantic Records. The video for '777' received some airplay on MTV, but album sales failed to prosper.
Billy Dior was reportedly in the bands Kid Rocker, and the Screamin' Mimis with future Poison guitarist C.C. Deville prior to joining D'Molls. He went on to publish a novel in 2004 under the name Billy McCarthy, The Devil of Shakespeare, inspired in part by his experiences with the band and the 1980s L.A. glam rock scene.
