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.

The glory days of rock 'n' roll on the Strip weren't confined to the '60s, when the Doors, Byrds and the Buffalo Springfield were at work and at play. It was during the '70s that Los Angeles' clubs became the absolute center of American pop music, when the latest hopefuls--from Elton John and Tom Petty to Bette Midler and the Police--were served up to taste-maker audiences and often overnight stardom.

The small crowd quiets down, embarrassed that he apparently is messing up. He paces. He gestures. Then his own thoughts come through the speakers.
