The Sunset Strip holds a special place in the heart of one Saul Hudson, better known as the guitarist Slash. "In the 1970s, my family moved from England to the Laurel Canyon area, and my parents were very much dialed in to the whole Sunset Strip scene," said the rocker. "They were both in the music business, and the whole reason we lived where we did was because of the recording industry. So I have very vivid memories of the Rainbow and the Roxy, and the Whisky was a huge point of interest at that time.

The remarkable charm of the city of Orange, whose Old Towne is the largest district on the National Register of Historic Places in California, is the result of its steadfast refusal to change with the times. Walking through its 140-year-old central plaza or strolling nearby neighborhoods with their immaculate Craftsman bungalows, it's easy to feel you've been sucked into a time warp.

Madonna is standing before a packed crowd at the Palladium in New York. Stage lights beam overhead. Legions of plastic bracelets dangle from her slender wrists. Her disheveled locks are pulled away from her face. Clutching onto the microphone stand, she glances to her right. Click.
