Welcome to Rock City,
California, the Rock and Roll capital of the world! Yes, that's right, the city that
has more rock than anywhere else. Los Angeles is the place to be. Not only are all
Record Companies here, but there's tons of
guitar stores, and other
hangouts for musicians.
The weather is absolutely great, people rock all night, the girls are beautiful, the beaches are only 10 minutes away. From Malibu Beach to Venice Beach to Huntington, Newport, and Laguna Beaches, You'll find surfers and sun lovers everywhere. You can move out and get a bungalow or a loft maybe a guest house, cause the rent is cheap enough even for musicians.
The nightclubs of Los Angeles are something else! From the Sunset Strip, to Canoga Park, from Hollywood to Orange County, L.A. is alive with the sound of rock!
Step this way, ladies and gentlemen, and we'll take a Tour of the L.A. rock scene. We'll start on the Sunset Strip, where the Rainbow Bar & Grill is the ultimate rock restaurant and bar. Everybody goes there at least once in a while, and the food is great.
The Roxy Theatre is right next door to the Rainbow, and is one of L.A.'s premier rock showcase clubs. The Whisky a-Go-Go, another of L.A.'s premier Rock Clubs, is just a block down Sunset, and the Viper Room is across the street. The Viper Room is Johnny Depp's club, and to us, it's the "attitude" club where every jaded egotistical rock star dreams of playing cause they like to have 100's of people outside screaming to get in. (The club only holds about 50)
Now let's head towards Hollywood on the famous Sunset Strip to look for some great new bands. First we come to the House of Blues, The biggest club on the strip, a great place to have dinner and see a great band. You've got to valet park here, cause there's no other parking, but once inside, you'll see an incredible club with big wooden tables, wide isles, and lots of room for everyone. It's got that ol Mississippi tin siding and looks like a cheap low-rent shack even though it's a multi-million-dollar new concert hall. Multi level dining areas all have a great view of the huge stage, where the world's best blues bands play nightly and . . .
