eternal light Posted April 12, 2008 Share Posted April 12, 2008 The Whisky-A-Go-Go, 8901 Sunset Blvd at Clark, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, CA All this great stuff has been researched and prepared by Corry Arnold with formidable contributions by Jerry Fuentes and Mark Skobac (and further assistance from John Einarson, David Biasotti and Ross Hannan) The Whisky A Go-Go became the principal hangout of musicians and hipsters in Hollywood in the 1960s. Johnny Rivers was the first sensation to come out of the club, soon after it opened (on January 11, 1964), and that is when the club initially started the whole ‘trend’ of having a mini-skirted girl dancing above the crowd in a cage. Somehow, the Whisky became the cool place for bands to play. The History of The Whisky-A-Go-Go Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
