Love Street in Los Angeles
Los Angeles Tour Guest’s Special Request
Our private Los Angeles tour guides are ready for everything. They have to be. The guest this day wanted to see homes that inspired songs. An unusual request but, like others we have had in the past, a challenge we were happy to accommodate. Among the houses shown that day was this one. Once the home of Jim Morrison and Pamela Courson, and the inspirational location of his song Love Street, this Laurel Canyon apartment building in the Hollywood Hills still stands. Their tumultuous relationship disturbed and entertained the neighbors who would often witness her tossing his clothing over the balcony. The 1968 song appears on The Doors‘ album Waiting for the Sun. Jim Morrison also lived up behind the Whiskey a Go-Go at one time.
