The muse struck at a young age and began with Ernie's Record Shop on Lankershim Blvd. In North Hollywood where I purchased my first Beatle record "I Wanna Hold Your Hand" and a record by Major Lance titled "Um,Um,Um,Um,Um,Um". From there I saw the Beatles at the Hollywood Bowl and I was hooked...on Rock N' Roll. At the age of 13 it seems as if the magical world of Rock N' Roll opened up and welcomed me. A trip to Indio with Frank Zappa and possee, and subsequent gigs as a dancer at The Teen Fairs at the Hollywood Palladium sealed the deal. As a trained journalist, I've written for magazines, newsletters,newspapers and blogs. In addition, I have run a nightclub by the name of The Cave. Music is the thread that weaves a patchwork quilt of genres, venues and experience out of my life and in the process have introduced many fine acts to my followers.

For the rest of my story dear readers, read my articles and it will unfold like the petals of a lotus flower. 

 

Take me to the river, throw me in and baptize me and if a spaceship happens to stop by please put me on board as I have seen the future and it is...

The Yardbirds

Before Led Zeppelin there was The Yardbirds. 

When it comes to the local music scene in Los Angeles, music photographer Harold Sherrick is the linchpin that weaves a decade's long career that has him crossing paths with every well-known act on the music scene and is perhaps the best example of the six degrees of separation theory.

Buying tickets for gigs in L.A.

For a variety of reasons, I usually do not procure my own tickets to local concert events. And after a recent journey into the world of ticket procurement, I now know why I never do. I decided a few months ago to try buying tickets on my own and see what it involved.

January was a month full of news and adventures and it was really hard to keep them limited to just a few highlights of the month.

Pappy and Harriet in Pioneer Town

Every once in awhile this L. A. woman needs to get out of “Dodge" and get a new perspective other than the view that Los Angeles offers up on a daily basis.
