My Rock Moment

Was it being front row at a Bowie concert as a kid? Was it meeting Van Halen at a record store album signing? Or was it the first time that your band got to play The Whisky A Go Go?

episode 25: Laurel Canyon Playlist with Emmeline Summerton of Lost Canyons LA

To close out Season Three, which celebrates the California Sound in the 60s and 70s, My Rock Moment teamed up with Emmeline Summerton of Lost Canyons LA to create our very own Laurel Canyon playlist.

Emmeline writes for the Topanga New Times, an LA publication that circulates to all residents of the canyons. She’s also the writer and creator of the Instagram account Lost Canyons LA which celebrates the history, music, art, and fashion of LA’s iconic Canyon communities. 

We're sharing some of our favorite Laurel Canyon tracks and delving into the inspiration and little-known stories behind them. If you’re a fan of all things “behind the music”, you'll learn a thing or two about the artists and the music that came out of that incredible time and place. Here are the Canyon tracks we’ll be covering in this episode:
