Van Halen Rising: How a Southern California Backyard Party Band Saved Heavy Metal

Vroman's Bookstore

695 E. Colorado, Pasadena, CA 91101


Greg Renoff discusses and signs Van Halen Rising: How a Southern California Backyard Party Band Saved Heavy Metal. After years of playing gigs everywhere from suburban backyards to dive bars, Van Halen led by frontman extraordinaire David Lee Roth and guitar virtuoso Edward Van Halen had the songs, the swagger, and the talent to turn the rock world on its ear. The quartet’s classic 1978 debut, "Van Halen," sold more than a million copies within months of release and rocketed the band to the stratosphere of rock success. On tour, Van Halen’s high-energy show wowed audiences and prompted headlining acts like Black Sabbath to concede that they’d been blown off the stage. By the year’s end, Van Halen had established themselves as superstars and reinvigorated heavy metal in the process.   Based on more than 230 original interviews including with former Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony and power players like Pete Angelus, Marshall Berle, Donn Landee, Ted Templeman, and Neil Zlozower, Van Halen Rising reveals the untold story of how these rock legends made the unlikely journey from Pasadena, California, to the worldwide stage

One-on-One with Charles Dickson

California African American Museum

600 State Drive, Exposition Park, CA 0


As a public artist, Dickson is no stranger to the paperwork and bureaucratic maze an artist has to traverse to solidify an art commission. Aside from prevailing over these challenges, Dickson’s real passion is trying to elevate the type of artworks that are reviewed, approved and allowed to be accepted in lower-income neighborhoods. Dickson shares his philosophy of how higher-end designs of artworks can serve to be not only functional, but change the landscape of the community and the vision of its residents and visitors.

Clifton’s & Clifford Clinton: A Cafeteria and a Crusader

Vroman's Bookstore

695 E. Colorado, Pasadena, CA 91101


Edmond J. Clinton III discusses and signs Clifton’s & Clifford Clinton: A Cafeteria and a Crusader. Clifton’s Cafeteria—it might just be the most famous restaurant in the history of L.A. Nah, not because of the movie stars who showed up (oh, yeah, there were plenty), but because real people ate there. Millions of ’em since 1931.   Nobody forgot that if a hungry person couldn’t pay, that was OK. The Golden Rule. That’s what the place was all about. So everybody came. Clifford Clinton owned Clifton’s—all of ’em—everything he did was about doin’ unto others.  Nobody goin’ hungry on his watch. And when he saw corruption in his City of Angels, he went after it. He led a campaign to recall the Mayor. He cleaned up the town. His story is as good as it gets—straight outta Raymond Chandler, only real—Clifford Clinton’s never published story, and more stuff about L.A. you just won’t believe. And the pictures. So many. They’re like everything you remember about Clifton’s— delicious. Like green JellO--with whipped cream.  The author, Dr. Edmond J. Clinton III is the grandson of Clifford Clinton, the founder of Clifton's Cafeteria, arguably the most famous restaurant in Los Angeles.
