Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and the Music of Laurel Canyon Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A lavishly illustrated insider's look at 80 years of music and culture in Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon is a zip code with its own play list: to name just a few, Sonny & Cher, The Doors, The Turtles, Canned Heat, Monkees, Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne; Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young; Eagles, and Carole King all cultivated their immortal sounds in this L.A.-based musical fraternity. Written by a long-time L.A. resident who knows them all, Canyon of Dreams traces the history of the community and its enduring legacy. Taking a deeply personal approach, it uses a multiple-voice narration based on exclusive interviews with the area's musical elite. Because of their close and long-time connection with Kubernik, some of these stars are speaking openly for the first time. Eye-opening both visually and informationally, this is a book no music lover can be without Interview highlights include - For the first time in years, the three surviving Doors talk about performances, recordings, band dynamics, and, of course, Jim Morrison - Randy Meisner reminisces about the Eagles first gig and the recording of One of These Nights - Graham Nash reflects on life with Joni Mitchell and describes writing Our House - Lou Adler discusses his legendary Sunset Strip venues--the Whisky a Go-Go, Roxy Theater, Rainbow Bar & Grill, and Tapestry--and, with Michele Phillips, reflects on the Monterey Pop Festival. - Slash, a child of the Canyon, details the formation of Guns N' Roses - And much, much more
