Quotes

Mark Mahoney: I'm going tell you a story of vice and of glory and how it was back in the day. The yellow brick road it ain't, it's the streets of sinners, not of saints. It's LA's Champs De Sleesay. I'm going to make it funky in the style of super junky poets of the ain't going to school. And we'll ride east to west in a short that's the best. So lean back, dig the ride and be cool.

Very informative and entertaining
8 November 2013 | by magnumnashSee all my reviews

Fun from start to finish, and a history lesson as well. It does not get much better than this as far as biographical documentaries go. Pop culture in the Unite States has for a long time centered on the happening of the Sunset Strip, and now we have a chance to hear what it was like, from the people who lived it. Stories from speakeasies, night clubs, hotels, brothels, and comedy clubs make for great laughs and insight.

I really enjoyed hearing about the change in musical genres, and how it affeceted the people who frequented the strip from decade to decade, especially the change from the 1950'2 to 1960's. It was also quite interesting to hear first hand about the drug use, and death of certain stars. A must see for sure.
