Oooh, I'm definitely going to pick up the Laurel Canyon book when I go to the bookstore today! I'm very interested in L.A. in the '60s and '70s; call me crazy but I feel a connection to it, like I was there in a past life! Unfortunately, L.A. is nothing like how it was back then today.

Thanks so much for the recs, Dinahgrace! I know I've seen that book in bookstores before, but for some reason never picked it up. I really hope you get a chance to read I'm With the Band! There's so much great stuff about Jimmy in there!

Thanks skinny_boho and twilight fairy, enjoy reading guys!
Maybe_tonight: What you said just made me want it even more! I really really want it so badly now. And I'll also look for Laurel Canyon.

But there's another book!



I found this article on hollywoodhangover.com, and I saw Lori, only she's with John Bonham But this article is about the book Straight Whisky.



Here are some reviews on the book:

Outstanding! Prepare to be consumed by the tale of a Hollywood landmark, the Whisky A Go-Go, from its go-go and movie star days to the hippie era to rock to punk to glam metal and into the current day. The authors' style is accessible and easy-to-follow--each chapter opens with an anecdote about people in the club and closes with a comprehensive historical analysis and commentary. The two components of each chapter were perfectly delineated and well balanced.

Prepare for a lot of tell-all uncensored anecdotes about everyone from the the Byrds to The Doors to Guns N Roses to Led Zeppelin to The Germs to Motley Crue. There's something for everyone in the history of The Whisky.

This book takes you inside a trio of clubs owned by the same family: the legendary Wisky, the smaller venue for unsigned bands, the Roxy, and the legendary Rainbow, where rock stars and Hollywood scenesters dined and drank in the heyday of the Sunset Strip and continue to do so today. Anyone visiting LA should stop by the Rainbow for a meal and to see a part of living history.


If you love rock and roll, you will enjoy this book. Its a well written and an easy to read book, which gives the reader a tonn of insight to the world of the Whisky A Go Go. One of the best things about this book, it doesnt stop too long on one decade, keeping you wanting more. It equally shares stories and information about most everything that went on at the Whisky. If your looking for rock history with a side of Americana, read it.

source: amazon.com, and there's more great reviews there!

Sorry, they're photos I scanned from the 1974 November Playboy Magazine. The color shot is photographer Richard Fegley. The b/w shots are Pete Turner, I believe.
