Los Angeles Road Trip
Traveling to the City of Angels on the Highway to Hell
Almost everything I do is centered around music. It started in 5th grade when I discovered Guns N’ Roses, the band that completely changed my life. They are one of the many bands that came out of Los Angeles in the 1980’s when rock and metal were huge. My musical tastes have grown fonder since then, but that is still where my heart is and the amount of musical history in LA is so enormous that I don’t even think I could handle it. Anyway the point of this journey is to see where my heroes came from and to see where it all really happened. I also have a goal for myself. Since it’s going to take three to four days to get to my destination, I’m going to write one song a day while traveling. It’s going to be a challenge because I don’t have a ton of experience writing songs, but I know it’s the step that I need to take in order to move forward and I am more than willing to follow through.

Traveling, Accomidations and Money
The Whisky A Go Go
The Whisky is a world famous club that has been around since the 60's. Bands like the Doors, Mötley Crüe and Led Zepplin have all made their mark in this legendary building and it is still one of the most well-known clubs on the planet.
The Rainbow Bar and Grill
The Rainbow is LA's top rock n roll bar! The late great Ronnie James Dio has a table here and Lemmy from Motörhead frequents here often. A great place to refresh after a show and it is definitely the place to be if one is interested in any rockstar sightings!
The Roxy Theatre
The Roxy is another club that is very similar to the Whisky. The bands that I mentioned earlier had also played in this venue while they were tredging their way to the top. It's also the next door neighbor of the the Rainbow!
