If a man can make it in Los Angeles, He can make it anywhere; But you've got to have a used Cadillac car, Yes, boys, and you can't stay square. --"L.A. Blues," recorded in 1947 by Crown Prince Waterford * This town has a bad case of the blues. Not since the 1960s when such English icons as Eric Clapton and Keith Richards spearheaded the first blues revival has interest been so high in this unique music of desolation and joy.

She's lived a long time and paid a whole lot of dues, but that's not why Laura Mae Gross is singing the blues. Gross, the 73-year-old owner of Babe and Ricky's Inn, the last blues nightspot in South-Central Los Angeles, is in a world of trouble these days with the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers, which monitors and collects royalties for its members under music copyright laws.

Scene 1, Las Palmas and Hollywood Boulevard: A thin, tall man with glazed eyes and a high-pitched voice approaches you at midnight as you park your car. He tells you he needs some help. Seems he's lost his dope, and he's convinced if he doesn't find it soon, someone else will and that'll be the end of his stash. Nearby, a couple of young guys begin to chuckle at the stranger, who by now has scooted under the car to take one last look around.

Star Garden is at 6630 Lankershim Blvd.
