I am focusing my collection of autographs on the singer/songwriter's who lived in Laurel Canyon between 1970-80 and who were discovered on the West Hollywood sunset strip night clubs like The Troubadour and the Whiskey-A-Go-Go. Can anybody help me with this?
It's hard for me to figure out when a lot of the musicians who visited Laurel Canyon or played The Troub. were actually there. I'm interested in the periods between 1970 and 80. The thing is musicians came and left there all the time so it's hard to get a read on when they were really there. I'm trying to trace them to within a five year period.
Topanga Canyon is nowhere near Laurel Canyon as it connects the Valley from Woodland Hills to Malibu. Not sure what the 2 canyons have to do with it? They say "some lived on laurel canyon", but that's code for "I don't know WTF I'm talking about. For instance, they say Richard Pryor played there. He lived on Parthenia Street. When he lit himself like a torch, and went for a run down Parthenia, he was found less than a block from us in Northridge near Hayvenhurst. Nowhere near Laurel Canyon. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.
"Laurel Canyon" is best known for the biggest POLICE shootout in HISTORY at the Bank of America...Look it up!!!
