Today’s guest on My Rock Moment is Dave Gebroe, founder and host of the well-known podcast, Discograffiti. Discograffiti is a weekly music podcast that delivers the objective truth about the entire discography of every single artist and band that ever existed. The show does a deep-dive inspection of all EPs, singles, compilations, relevant solo work and bootlegs, and notable appearances on other artists’ records. Every release is assigned an objectively accurate star rating between zero and five, and Dave shares best and worse picks in their discography.
In this episode, Dave and I explore the California Myth within the context of 60s and 70s rock. Surf rock as well as other anthems that pay homage to the Golden State, fueled the global fascination with perfect waves, beaches flanked with tanned skin and teeny bikinis, fame, beauty, and a promise of some grander way of living. California has long been a western beacon dating back centuries but the songs we’ll cover today conjure up visions and dreams of an ideal life that was far from factual for many.
Some songs on this list might come as a surprise, and others have crossed generations, staples of our classic rock playlists. Have a listen and see how your list compares.
