A colleague used to have a backglass as a piece of art but doesn't remember what table it was from.

It featured a guitarist on his knees and women behind him.

Anyone know what table that might be?

I am guessing Heavy Metal Meltdown from Williams -

That table is almost unbearably cheesy. Still it's a testament to the airbrush artist that he still made a compelling theme out of "hair metal".

I showed him that one and he said it looked familiar but couldn't swear that was it.

Rock Star fits the description but it's way different than that other one:

Of course you also have these other unlikelys here (http://www.ipdb.org/showpic.pl?id=1979&picno=14341)here (http://www.ipdb.org/showpic.pl?id=4862&picno=5610)and here (http://www.ipdb.org/showpic.pl?id=1978&picno=39632).

Seems like Rock Star had an alternative or bootleg which is here (http://www.ipdb.org/showpic.pl?id=4084&picno=24692).

Here is a great book on pinball art. I highly recommend it. I came across a nice hardback copy at the swaps for $10. Great! Looks like it can be an expensive book. Tons of great color photos.

I showed him Rock Star and that was a resounding no.

I think it is Heavy Metal Meltdown because I can't find anything more likely. I tried the obvious GnR and KISS.

Well, he can't deny it does fit the description, possibly even better than Heavy Metal Meltdown. It's not even really that clear to me that those are chicks in the background of HMM.
