    I thought Merle was on California via San Quentin. Was he not originally an Okie, or do I just think that because of the song Okie from Muskogee?

    San Quentin is where he served time for robbery. Hag was born in Bakersfield to Okie, err, Oklahoma migrant, parents....

    Sorry about Fleetwood Mac but I think some of their songs have a California feelings. Maybe in England they dream of a Surfin Safari like me [​IMG]

    I don't know where to begin first with all the suggestion here. I cannot wait to get something new for my player!!

    Yes, I think they're well qualified to represent the LBC. However, most people I know got their fill of them in 1997.
    something quintessentially Californian about their lazy laid back music style tho

    "Goodbye Caroline" by Aimee Mann is the last word in lost California dream songs. Wilson Brother might also be interested in the soundtrack to the 1972 movie "Welcome to L.A." It amounts to a song cycle called "The City of the One Night Stands."

    "Okie" is a slur used by California natives to denigrate Dustbowl migrants who came to California in the 30s from Oklahoma, the Texas panhandle and elsewhere. The Joads, essentially, though apparently Steinbeck vastly overplayed the extent of the crisis and the size of the migration. Nonetheless, a lot of them did come, and they settled primarily in the southern and eastern parts of the Central Valley, in the High Desert, and in the Inland Empire.

    Bakersfield is a lot like Texas and Oklahoma. It's hot. It's dry. The main industries are (or were) oil, cattle and farming. Everyone with a little cash drives a huge, top of the line Ford or Chevy truck. Country music is very popular. It's hard to say whether the Okies settled there because it felt like home or if, by settling there, they made it like home.

    Fourth on Warren. His mail used to come to my apartment building when I lived off Melrose. I thought he might live in the same building until a friend told me she got his mail too where she lived.

    Jefferson Airplane, anyone? Is Grace Slick from CA, or did she just end up in Mill Valley?

    The Doors...

    She was born somewhere else (Illinois I think?) but her parents moved to the Penninsula when she was in high school.
