When Domenic Priore first captured my attention, I started googling to get as much info about him as I could. He is an encyclopedia of rock and roll history. Man, you can ask him ANYthing, and he will have a detailed and colorful answer. His book, “Riot On Sunset Strip…” is packed with hundreds of photos and thousands of tidbits on our era in Hollywood. I had been impressed with him prior to that, but after the book, I became a major fan. To my amazement, we have now landed him as a blogger on our site. Not sure how that happened…maybe it was Slagge’s good looks and charm, but I am so honored to have him with us. Let’s all give a big wraparound to Domenic! Here is the direct link to his weblog:
The Great Hollywood Hangover
And along comes Rick Schultze with his very own Weblog. He has written lots of articles and posts on our website and now he's got a Weblog that you can leave your comments on after registering and logging in to it. Use the link below:

Just wanted to say hi and give you the Jumbo web site. Just go to jumbo70.com We've been working on it since Oct. and it's finally done.
Will you put up a message for me or would you rather I do it?
I can't remember how to log in or whatever. We would like to inviteeveryone to check it out, and we're still looking for more pictures etc. of the band.
Please let me know what to do to help out our site. It will be greatly appreciated.
Peace & Love,
Be sure to open this Mod as all get-out flyer, first and foremost!
Next Friday, March 26, 2010, Larry Edmunds Bookshop (on Hollywood Boulevard, since 1938!) will host my "Sunset Strip Slideshow," based on research discoveries made during the creation of my book Riot on Sunset Strip: Rock 'n' Roll's Last Stand in Hollywood. Presentation begins around 7:30 p.m. and should go to about 9.
The interesting thing about this one is that it will display the roots of the mid-'60s Mod scene on Sunset Strip, showing how it came out of Beat Generation coffeehouses, Jazz joints and Folk clubs like The Renaissance, Crescendo and The Unicorn. This grows into what became home for The Byrds, Love, The Doors, Buffalo Springfield, The Mothers of Invention and many more of your favorite Pop Sike Folk Rock Garage bands.
But ah, the colour! Our special guest on this evening will be Charles Lange, owner of the "Belinda" boutique on Sunset Strip, as profiled in the movie Mondo Mod. Charles will impart some of the ideas and fashion sense of the mid-'60s moment, and can answer all your questions about all the good things that went into the making of this time. The guy has great recall and a complete understanding of the whimsy that generated the movement. Here is a quote about "Belinda" from Tracy Thomas of England's New Musical Express, circa 1966: "Avant-Garde girls clothes -- First Hollywood minis." We will show his sequence from Mondo Mod and then, I will moderate a question & answer session with Charles Lange about the Sunset Strip, the '60s and Mod fashion as it hit the West Coast. Man, what a night!

Well, finally a few years late made it to your web site, thank you for having this. I could fall into the category of "List of Sunset Strip People, or Where are they now?" I was the TOO Young girlfriend of Leonard from Shady Lady, for a long time, until I had to get out and discover life. Decades later nothing has changed, still learning and discovering, live part time on an island now, but still a 60's girl in my heart.

Subject: Pamela Courson
I'm not really sure where to start, as I've never done anything like this before, but alot of people have suggested that I write to you, requesting your help.
I am wanting to write a book on Pamela Courson, someone who has fascinated me endlessly for years. She died 14 years before I was born, and so her life, her world in the 40's, 50's, 60's, and 70's is very alien and exotic to me. I am wanting to find people who knew Pamela to interview them, and ask them questions.. I have a few ideas of who to contact, but not many, so I thought that maybe you could have some suggestions, or if you posted in this on your site, people might come forth.
It's been my feeling that Pamela has been endlessly overlooked and misunderstood, and she's received some very unneeded bad press. I'm not looking to sugarcoat her life and her mistakes, but Pam deserves a true account.
I truly appreciate you taking the time to read this. Thanks so much.
...as Lady Jane (maybe some knew me as Jenny) -- arrested in the riots my first time ever in Hollyweird - couldn't stay away then. lived in Laurel Canyon on Gould ....Santa Monica and Western - St Andrew's Arms Apartments (waaay down) and here and there - very temporary. hung out in front of the whiskey but also spent loads of time at the Blue Grotto.(anybody know what happened to Foster? He kept me alive by giving me an open tab) Wondering the whereabouts of "Mick" (yeah looked like Jagger) and "Mouse" (his often side-kick - long fringed and beaded leather jacket) Did a lot of hitching to the Haight and back and finally, late '69 I think, I headed out for good to communes in Joshua Tree and Wheelers Ranch. Had babies and lived in Oregon most of the years since - with stints in the San Juan Islands, Indiana, and New Mexico. Worked in special ed for many years then became a jeweler. Now I've founded a non-profit that assists Iraqi refugees in Jordan and live there most of the year. In fact, heading back to Amman in the morning. I'm definitely book-marking this site - thanks dor doing this!
