The Whisky a Go Go has been a staple in Rock N Roll history as the premier venue for aspiring artist to launch off into super stardom. From it's inception in 1964 it was the hip spot for the beatniks and mods to get loose and dance to the hits of the day. In the late sixties a 4 piece band from Venice Beach, The Doors took the stage of the Whisky accompanied by notable acts such as: Van Morrison, The Monkees, The Kinks, Sonny and Cher, The Who, Frank Zappa and The Mothers of Invention, Alice Cooper, The Turtles, Buffalo Springfield, The Mama's and The Papa's amongst a slew of others. Through out the 1970's it was a bed of creativity for musicians to explore their artistic reach and perform in the heart of the Sunset Strip, Sensational Alex Harvey Band, Robin Trower, The Stooges, New York Dolls,After closing its doors for a short time it in the early 80's it reopened and was pivotal in the culturing of the new sound of the Sunset Strip with bands like: The Cure, Quiet Riot, Bad Religion, The Damned, Motley Crue, White Snake, Van Halen, The Misfits, X, Warrant, The Go Go's, Metallica (who formed after finding Cliff Burton playing a show at The Whisky) The Sunset Strip was a glow with big hair, eyeliner and heavy metal. Then the kids from the great Northwests came down in the 90's and brought with them a whole new sound and style. The Whisky A Go Go hosted acts like, Soundgarden, Mudhoney and Melvins, Oasis, The 90's also ushered in the industrial metal hard rock era and bands like TOOL and NIN, Rob Zombie, System of a Down, AltHipHop Kid Rock, Eminem, KO?N in the 2000's Taylor Swift, As I Lay Dying, and others helping to cut their teeth into the music industry and go on to bigger than life things.
Throughout the years Whisky A Go Go has been a staple of creativity in performance and true Rock N Roll to name all the bands that have played these walls is unheard of, now its your turn to be apart of that history.
