Ten Legendary Groups Who Emerged On The Whisky A Go-Go Stage

The famous Whisky A Go-Go club nestled on the corner of the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles has paved the way for many now legendary musical acts in rock and roll. Known for being at the forefront of the rock and roll scene in LA since founding in 1964, The Whisky was called home to some of the most important acts in music whose influence still looms in the halls of the club.

Simply, without The Whisky around, these famous acts may have never had a chance or gone on to reaching the monumental success that they eventually achieved, which in turn, could have resulted in a cataclysmic chain effect on the influence of popular bands for generations after. Check out ten influential bands who owe their early success to the famous Whisky A Go-Go!
