Description
Laurel Canyon, California, running through the hills between West Hollywood and San Fernando, is a zip code with its own playlist, says veteran music journalist Harvey Kubernik in this scrapbook-like history. The sounds of Sonny and Cher; the Doors; Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young; Joni Mitchell; the Eagles; Carole King; the Byrds; and many other musicians were cultivated here. Kubernik traces the story of this legendary creative community through hundreds of color photos and many candid interviews—the three surviving Doors talk about performances, recordings, and band dynamics; Graham Nash reflects on life with Joni Mitchell and describes writing "Our House"; Randy Meisner reminisces about the Eagles first gig and the recording of "One of These Nights"; and Lou Adler discusses his legendary Sunset Strip venues—the Whisky a Go-Go, Roxy Theater, Rainbow Bar & Grill, and Tapestry—and, with Michele Phillips, reflects on the Monterey Pop Festival. Native Angeleno Kubernik also covers the history of the region itself, from the development of the Gardens of Allah in the 1920s through today's Laurel Canyon scene, writing about such contemporaries as Lili Haydn and Jonathan Wilson.
