Video: 50 Best - L.A. Bands

Happy Monday! Kicking off this week I thought I'd share with you the "50 Best" for June's L.A. Times Magazine. I've covered this edition before from their February 2010 50 Best Hollywood Movie Kisses and I always look forward to what their choice will be. This time it was my favorite list yet, "50 best L.A. Bands" There could be no other choice for the coveted #1 spot - Venice originated The Doors. I have a slight obsession with this band. I fell in love with them and their music after I got my hands on my dad's 1985 Best Of The Doors album. I literally played that double set over and over getting lost in Morrison's words and the sound of Manzarek's organ. They're truly some of the most amazing creative minds ever which is why they definitely deserve the top spot for L.A. bands. Neil Young also makes an impressive triple appearance with #4 Buffalo Springfield, #11 Crosby, Stills, Nash [this totally counts as their best songs are with Young] & #24 Neil Young and The Crazy Horse. The list ranges from 1961 (The Beach Boys #2) up until 1999 (Maroon 5 #26) Check out the list here and see if your fav band is listed. You can also vote and help decide who you think should be the HomeGrown  #1. Now I'll leave you with one of my favorite live Doors performances from The Hollywood Bowl 1968. Here's a start to great week!
