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.

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • Blind Item: America’s Sweetheart Battling A Drug Addiction?
    |

    BLIND_ITEM_NEW_#CUT

    One of America’s Sweethearts is battling a serious drug addiction- not hers, but her best friend’s. Through the years these two have been stuck to one another like white on rice and her fame rubbed off on her pal. They’ve been roomies, have worked together on set, and even launched a business venture together. But all that success has come with a price. After years of being sober, the less famous friend has fallen HARD off the wagon and our gal doesn’t know what to do. She’s hosted an intervention, hired an addiction specialist, and even threatened to end the friendship, but nothing seems to work. What’s a girl to do?
