The Guitar Center and Hollywood’s Rockwalk
The Holy Grail for Our Private Tour Music Lovers
Many of the Los Angeles tour companies overlook the Rockwalk in Hollywood. True, it has been a long while since an artist was inducted (the last was Yngwie Malmsteen on October 13, 2008). However, our private Los Angeles tour guests will be taken here if they express any interest at all in contemporary music so they can experience a wonderful Hollywood sightseeing destination and an amazing music store. We consider the entrance to the very first Guitar Center a pantheon of rock ‘n roll and rhythm and blues gods and goddesses. Every music lover should have the opportunity to examine the handprints of those who have made the music that shaped our lives. There were 183 inductees from 1985 until 2008 covering a wide range of musicians, composers and performers who greatly “influenced” the music scene. Like the nearby Grauman’s Chinese Theater courtyard where movie stars placed their hands into wet cement to immortalize their place in Hollywood film history, here at the Rockwalk messy hands left a mark that loving visitors can touch and then remember, even sing and hum, the tunes that changed their lives.
