Following the recent rain it feels like more GuitarTown tributes than ever have popped up along the Sunset Strip to brighten up the local neighbourhood.
Otis Reading guitar tribute by Raphael Saadiq and Upendo Taylor
fourth wave of GuitarTown public art installation that launched in August 2010 and have been used to honour music legends and raise money for contemporary music-based charities over the years, plus their presence also reinforces that the Sunset Strip is still the home of rock and roll.
Doublebooked guitar tribute to Jane's Addiction
and Empire of the Sun by Joshua Burks
China Cat guitar tribute to Jerry Garcia by Willard Snowguitar tributes to Janis Joplin and Bob Marley by the same artist, which can currently be found at the start of the Sunset Strip as you enter from Beverly Hills into West Hollywood. Plus the other Marc Bolan guitar tribute can be found at the entrance in the Andaz Hotel's foyer.
These guitars must certainly give tourists something to wonder about as they drive by in their open-top mini-buses and they help keep things interesting for us locals too.
Keep on keeping on GuitarTown...
