There’s no end to the rock legends and lore from Laurel Canyon’s hey day. In a 2015 Vanity Fair interview, Joni Mitchell talked about her little house that she paid a modest $36,000 for and the creative stimuli that surrounded her in Laurel Canyon.
JONI MITCHELL: My dining room looked out over Frank Zappa’s duck pond, and once when my mother was visiting, three naked girls were floating around on a raft in the pond. My mother was horrified by my neighborhood. In the upper hills the Buffalo Springfield were playing, and in the afternoon there was just a cacophony of young bands rehearsing. At night it was quiet except for cats and mockingbirds. It had a smell of eucalyptus, and in the spring, which was the rainy season then, a lot of wildflowers would spring up. Laurel Canyon had a wonderful distinctive smell to it. – An Oral History of Laurel Canyon, the 60s and 70’s Music Mecca, Lisa Robinson, February 8, 2015
