Synopsis

Laurel Canyon was the neighborhood perched above the clubs and record companies of Sunset Strip where Joni Mitchell, Jim Morrison, Graham Nash, Cass Elliot, Carole King, Don Henley, and Peter Tork, just to name a few, lived and collaborated to make an indelible mark on our music and our culture. Starting with The Byrds in 1965, these musicians began combining the effusive harmonies of folk music with the sounds of the British rock invasion. From their song craft was born the singer-songwriter movement and a new style of American pop that thrives on. This is not only a history of an important period in rock music but also the story of what happened to the peace and love philosophy of the sixties, as hard drugs and easy sex began to take their toll and the gruesome Wonderland murders signaled the end of the era. Listen to Lysa William's interview of the author, Michael Walker! Learn more about Laurel Canyon at www.laurelcanyonthebook.com
