1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    She was born somewhere else (Illinois I think?) but her parents moved to the Penninsula when she was in high school.
    Last I heard of her she was chasing imaginary people off of her property with a shotgun. Bad Marin Music: Journey Night Ranger I remember going to see Sublime at the Cactus Club in San Jose. They sucked then and continued to for their entire ride. My High School English teacher was Robbie Krieger's guitar teacher. He was his English teacher as well. The Doors peobably qualify. Jim Morrison lived for a bit in Los Altos and RK was from Menlo Park or Atherton.

    Better than Phil Spector, who apparently hits his targets, with all the attendent legal consequences.

    You don't like them?

    Their early work was too... "new wave" for my taste, but when "Sports" came out in '83, I think they really came into their own - commercially and artistically.

    Let us not forget other surf acts of the 60s. Dick Dale is from Mass, and the Ventures from Seattle, but I think they and other real instrumental surf acts are most identified with California.

    Has anyone mentioned Jan & Dean or Dick Dale? [​IMG] [​IMG] Definitely titans of the California surf sound. EDIT: Dick Dale is already in the house.

    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...


    Jefferson Airplane, definitely!

    Frank Zappa was originally from Baltimore.

    60s bands:
    Steppenwolf
    Love
    The West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band
    Quicksilver Messenger Service
    Tripsichord Music Box
    Peanutbutter Conspiracy

    And one 70s band:
    Sparks, who did not make it big until they moved to England.
