Go Go, Girl

Today is the 46th anniversary of the opening of the world famous Whisky A Go Go on the fabulous Sunset Strip!

"Johnny Rivers…returned to L.A. to accept a lucrative offer from Elmer Valentine to open at his lavish new nightclub based upon the popular European discotheque concept. Johnny Rivers at the Whisky A Go-Go turned Hollywood upside down. His first Imperial album, "Johnny Rivers At The Whisky A Go-Go," (produced by Lou Adler) was high in the charts for 45 weeks in 1964."

-Glenn A. Baker

kabuki and Mistress MJ in twist fringe and go-go boots, high above the dance floor, shaking it, not afraid of breaking it.

Dig?

My mother used to have this record. She would like it back - FELIX. Children please note: A record is like a big CD, only with less music. This was offset by a much better quality of musician. Good hearing is just wasted on the young. kabuki

Peenee: I thought your shimmy box was rusted out.
