If you like to read about conspiracies, government, secrets exposed, and things of that nature then, you should check out The LC, the Strange but Mostly True Story of Laurel Canyon and the Birth of the Hippie Generation by Dave McGowan. I'm a newbie here so, I don't know the protocol for posting links, but just Google that title and you'll find the site. What a great site it is. Dave McGowan has written a whole book and busted it up into parts for this series. You'll learn a lot about top musicians from the 60s and 70s. I always listened to that music when I was growing up because in the 80s and 90s they played all the oldies on the radio. So, I grew up admiring the hippies and rebels of that time only to find out upon reading this book that all the people I admired were up to their eye balls in this story about how a bunch of kids, like the Doors, Mamas and the Papas, Alice Cooper, were all children of people who happened to be part of the military complex of this country. Jim Morrison's own father was a big part of Vietnam. Anyways, it just blew my mind, if you like stories of crazy Los Angeles and the music industry you should definitely look this up. It's very captivating reading!
