The Life and Times of Peter Green
Archive: 29 May - 31 May 1996
Wake up in Hollywood--no sleep. Diane arrives from San Jose--we jump
in the car and drive, drive, drive. First stop Ralph's Rock n' Roll
Supermarket--we see a woman in a wheelchair make a quick gettaway--
she had a great shoplifting "technique". Next stop Melrose. We all
buy some clothes, Diane a cute "cherry dress"; almost buy a burgundy
wig, looked Guy Pearce-ish from "Priscilla". Find a Melrose bar--no
it wasn't "Shooters", suck on a Bud! Not much at Whacko, same Fat
Cat, Soap Factory is the same. Tower seems expensive, so we shop at
Aarons--"Dandy Warhols", "Imperial Drag" CDs. Marck from the
Internet calls, he tells me that some people on the Net didn't think
the "secret" UK gig was real, so crazy. The long awaited Dinner at
El Coyote, 2 tequilas and I'm gone. Engineer Cameron Craig turns up,
he has some color from days at California Beach. We head off to see
"I Shot Andy Warhol" at the Virgin Cinemas, it's pretty good, but
Eddie could have been better. In bed by midnight.
See adverts for "The Rock"--it opens tomorrow. MG and myself were at
Alcatraz when they were filming it --with Sean Connery. Connery
spent a lot of time singing Donna Summers "Hot Stuff"--picture that
if you can.
Diane hires the car for the second day. Not too many Hollywood
weirdos out today, BUT we do spot the "badge woman" in front of
Mann's Chinese Theatre. She was striking a pose with her badge
covered head for the Japanese tourists. We head to Rhino Records,
but no Neil Diamond CD (it really was for Mark's mum). Head to the
new Whacko store/ Soap Plant. It's not as good as the old one on
Melrose. BUT, the highlight of the day was "Bargain Circus" on
Highland, lots of trash and no bargains! We pig out of room service
(mmm . . . love the Mozzarella Sticks)--we notice that you can see
the original "Crowded House" (1902 N. Sycamore) from our hotel window.
Get to the airport early. Fly out to London--sounds like the UK
weather is better. Crowdies fly into London today too.
