Domenic Priore: Riot On Sunset Strip

Album Review

Forensic study of LA’s psychedelic golden age, with a foreword by Arthur Lee.

Asked to name the centre of the West Coast counterculture, most would plump for San Francisco. But, as Domenic Priore reminds us in this meticulously researched biography, for a short window between 1965-66 LA was a proto-hippie paradise where The Byrds, the Beach Boys, The Doors and Love all rubbed shoulders in a spirit of lysergically enhanced creativity.
