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