THE STORY OF WHISKY A GO-GO WOULD MAKE A GREAT MINISERIES

whisky-a-go-go-dram#17cut

The Whiskey A Go-Go on glorious Sunset Strip celebrated it’s 50th birthday this week and it brought back lots of memories. We had a hip clothing store called The Garment District a few blocks east of the Whisky in the early 70’s and all the performing rock stars shopped there for bellbottoms and vintage shirts. Jim Morrison, Rod Stewart, Led Zeppelin, Alice Cooper, Mick Jagger, etc were regular visitors. Last year Richard Branson’s production company was considering doing a TV miniseries on the Whisky comparable to Boardwalk Empire. How great could that be? Rock stars, groupies, gangster drama, music, vintage fashion and cars – all the elements are there! We’d love to see Branson’s people pull it off.

    Would love to read about Janet’s coked up adventures in her 1970′s head shop.

    HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT?

    Is this openly gay TV personality who already suffered a painful loss, headed for another stay at heartbreak Hotel? He has a new YOUNG boyfriend and he’s doing everything he can to promote the lad’s career. But, BEHIND HIS BACK, the conniving cutie is having a fling with the personal trainer they both share! Our unsuspecting TV guy doesn’t have a clue because the hunky trainer has a green-card marriage and plays it straight.

    Whodunit?? Guess who.
