Waiting for the Sun: Strange Days, Weird Scenes, and The Sound Of Los Angeles by Barney Hoskyns

Adding to my to-buy list of books:

No city in the western world exerts such a fascination as the damned paradise of Los Angeles. For decades an uneasy mix of glamour and debauchery has served as a magnet for everything venial and diseased. Waiting for the Sun offers an excavation of L.A.s dark, detailed, and twisted music scene, from the days of the thriving jazz clubs in the 40s to the menace of West Coast gangsta rap in the 90s. 180 photos
