danelectro59 Posted May 19, 2008 Share Posted May 19, 2008 I just saw this film yesterday about Rodney Bingenheimer, the LA DJ and one time club owner of Rodney's English Disco. I had almost completely forgotten about this man, but thinking back, he has been a major player on the music scene since the mid 60's. He's rubbed shoulders with Elvis, the Beatles, Bowie and everyone in between. He had one of the hottest nightclubs on the Strip in the early 70's during the glam rock era. I remember reading reports and seeing pics in the rock mags about the outrageous parties going on. The film is very good, but it is a documentary, which turn some people off. One thing that dissapointed me, but may not be a mistake, is that there was very little mention of Led Zeppelin. Only that Robert Plant said something to the effect that "Rodney has more women than me." Which at the time, around 72-73, would've been hard to believe. I know that Zep spent a lot of time hanging around this place. I'm curious to know if anyone here had been there before it closed? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
