Hey all, I'm off to California for a couple of weeks. Work for the first week, then holiday for the second. I'm thinking of doing the Whisky-a-go-go & maybe the viper room in LA, then drive to San Francisco FR for a few days. Any recommendations for sucking in some nice guitar tones and rock vibe?
Anywhere else I should go? Btw, I'm into Led Zep, Sabbath, SG's and Big Muffs... Lol

Just drive around LA with your windows down obnoxiously playing every song that mentions California in it.

Dont forget to play GTA5 when you're in Cali.

There's nothing good in California. It's a libtarded shithole with too many stupid laws and it's full of freedom and fun haters.

Not in some old, shitty rock clubs. That's for sure.

why the hell does that band need 3 guitarist.
Quote by barden1069
A "tubescreamer" is a person paid by a guitarist to stand behind the amp and scream at the tubes. This terrifies the tubes into overdriving and delivers a thick, harmonic-rich tone.

Sounds like someone's jealous of our three W's.

The big rock clubs live and die by who is playing so I never go randomly. I have a slight preference for the Viper Room but I've had fun at both.

When are you going and what part of LA are you staying in? This city is SPRAWLING! I assume Los Angeles becaue you mentioned the Sunset strip.

what does this have to do with anything? Both of those bands are British

Thanks all, keep the suggestions coming.
I'm staying in Redondo with work, and then no plans as yet, so no hotels booked for the holiday part of my trip. I arrive in LA on Sunday... If anyone sees a long haired Brit wandering around in a Black Sabbath t-shirt and a hangover, that'll be me

Just remember that once you get there, it will take way longer than you think it will to get anywhere else in California.

It's the kind of music he likes.

TS, if that's the sort of thing you're looking for, I know exactly where you want to go: the 70's.

Last time I was in CA was a decade ago, but I imagine right now LA is full of shit "indie" crud like Lana Del Rey and something in between hair metal revival shit and AX7.

Once again just on speculation, but San Francisco Bay might have to some cool punk and psych revival stuff going on.
