(Book). On the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles in 1965 and 1966, an electrifying scene appeared out of nowhere, exploded into creativity, and then suddenly vanished. From the moment The Byrds debuted at Ciro's in March of '65 with Dylan joining them onstage up to the demonstrations of 1966, clubs on the Strip nurtured and broke The Doors, Love, Buffalo Springfield, The Standells, The Mamas & The Papas, and many others. This book captures the excitement of this great artistic awakening and explains its tragic disappearance.
