Johnny Cash on the Viper Room
Private Tour Guests See 2 Hollywood Icons at One Time
We get so much positive feedback from our descriptions of Los Angeles mural art that we are delighted to have a new image to share today. David Flores has brought his “stained glass” mural painting style to the side of the iconic Sunset Strip music club The Viper Room. Honoring the club’s black and white color theme the artist refrains from color but still renders his familiar country music star, Johnny Cash, in a captivating way. It was back in December 1993 that Cash appeared at the club in person, not long after the tragic Halloween night death of River Phoenix just outside the club’s door which itself was only weeks after Johnny Depp and his partners opened The Viper Room. Cash’s appearance was at once a historic event but also a salve for the sadness still permeating the club since the loss of its friend. So much music history, so much Hollywood history in this one building. Be sure to ask your guide about it while on your private Los Angeles tour with us and take a look at some of our other mural blogs.
