The 1970s were a heyday for Los Angeles, Hollywood was being revolutionized, the music business was booming, and authors like Joan Didion were producing great novels about the realities of living in the land of eternal sunshine. In Weird Scenes Inside The Gold Mine, great writers muse on the city in its classic decade. Featuring John Densmore on being a rock star, Matthew Specktor's reflections on The Z Channel, Deanne Stillman on the desert, The Fast and The Furious director Rob Cohen on growing up near legendary music producer Gary Katz, and many, many more. This is an insider's look at what being an Angeleno was then and is now.
