Martin says the bar likely looks much the same way it did in the 50’s and he was rewarded outside by finding who, but Robin Hood himself all in Silver!

A Pretty Groovy Photo.

26 Jul

I always like this album and was listening to it on YouTube and once again became fascinated with the cover photo. This is what I found on Wikepedia: Miss Christine appeared on the front cover of Frank Zappa’s 1969 album Hot Rats. She is shown halfway through emerging from an empty swimming pool on the infamous Errol Flynn estates in the Hollywood Hills. She also dated rock and roll singer Alice Cooper, as well as Todd Rundgren from Utopia fame and a member of the Flying Burrito Brothers. Miss Christine died on November 5, 1972, of a heroin overdose in a house in Cohasset, Massachusetts, which at the time was being rented out by musician Jonathan Richman and his original group, The Modern Lovers.[7] Her death occurred shortly after she had spent nearly a year in a full body cast to correct a crooked spine.

Ride the pack mules at the “Mule Capitol of the World”. Climb the “perfect” rock formatioms.

This is up near where Bill Mulholland infamously stole, I mean bought, LA its water from Owens Valley, the deepest valley on the continent. This is where Jack “Foley Artist” Foley brought Hollywood after he moved here from Santa Monica. And this is where Errol, Raoul & Annie filmed Silver River.

Bishop, California, featuring the Sherwyn Summit & various locations in Inyo County, some of which can be seen in the following Silver City trailer:

Fascinating Fact: Writer Stephen Longstreet said that historical aspects of Silver City were provided to him by his cousin, General James Longstreet, Robert E. Lee’s “Old War Horse” (played by Tom Berenger in “Gettysburg”)
