Riot on Sunset Strip: Rock'n'Roll's Last Stand in Hollywood

Overview

(Book). On the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles in 1965 and 1966, an electrifying scene appeared out of nowhere, exploded into creativity, and then suddenly vanished. From the moment The Byrds debuted at Ciro's in March of '65 with Dylan joining them onstage up to the demonstrations of 1966, clubs on the Strip nurtured and broke The Doors, Love, Buffalo Springfield, The Standells, The Mamas & The Papas, and many others. This book captures the excitement of this great artistic awakening and explains its tragic disappearance.

    One Brief Shining Moment

    It has been endlessly claimed that the '60's was a time of social upheaval and cultural revolution. And for a short two year window, 1965 and '66, there was no better example of that in pop music than the Sunset Strip (and surrounding area) in Hollywood. Previously the province of the film community, in those two years a perfect storm of sights and sounds came together for those teens, and others young at heart, to go see their favorite groups and just be together.
    This book's author, Domenic Priore, is a writer and television producer specializing in music and pop culture (his compilation "Look! Listen! Vibrate! SMILE!" is recommended). In both its artwork and attention not only to the scene itself but also to the various influences that converged at that time and in that place, this book is the next best thing to having been there (which I wasn't, though I was growing up about 30 miles away in Orange County). He comprehensively covers the clubs, coffeehouses and boutiques, the bands and songs (and not just the limited rotation spoon fed to us these days on commercial oldies stations), the studios, the producers and session musicians, the radio stations and disk jockeys, the pop art, the TV music shows, the architecture and fashions, and, not leastly, those who made the trek from the surrounding counties to soak it all up and just have fun.
    Then, of course, there's the story behind the book's title. Historically and culturally, the time all of this happened was just slightly ahead of the acceptance by the greater population of such activities of the younger generation. Indeed, the arguement is made here that some of those who came to dance to the music of the Byrds, Love, and others were the first hippies. Predictably, tensions built with the local business and political leaders, who feared things were getting out of control. Curfews and other restrictive laws were imposed, reaching a critical point when a peaceful protest on the Strip resulted in several nights of physical conflict between teens and police in late 1966. Within weeks, most of the clubs on the Strip were shut down. The demise of the scene on the Strip at a time leading into the so called "Summer of Love" in San Francisco (in 1967, where the local establishment was apparently more accomodating), which as been thouroughly documented, promoted (and thus embedded in our minds) ever since, probably has contributed to its diminished place in the history of American popular music. Priore's book does a tremendous job of correcting that oversight. What is need now is a supplemental documenary. Domenic???
