No, not the drink, although I can assure a fair amount of it was consumed in the making of this book. This is the story of the Whiskey A Go Go (now without the A Go Go) and its sister clubs from creation to the present days. Comprising a tale from a trip and some facts about the clubs history per chapter this a great read if you are interested in the history of LA rock & roll. Only gripe is that more time is paid to the 60s & 70s and less time to the 80s & 90s but that is me showing my age.
For those who don’t know; the Whiskey is the rock club in LA having featured the creme de la creme of rock & roll greats from the Doors, through Led Zep, to the glory days of da Crue & GnR to present day. It is a cracking read that is well worth the price of admission. This book was responsible for at least one late night for me and probably will be for you as well. The book reads well and has excellent pace. If you are a rock fan I cannot think of a better summer read.
