The atmosphere of life in L.A. was captured perfectly in the 1969 edition of the Pirelli Calender. L.A. was the hippest and wildest place to be in the late sixties and seventies. For many musicians going to L.A. was a real treat. The popular hangouts: Rainbow Bar & Grill, the Whisky, Thee Experience, London Fog, The Troubadour, etc. I included some photos of some of the other colorful characters that haunted the strip.
