In a city that provides a storied history of TV and movie stars, sometimes the rich musical history is lost. The Hollywood RockWalk was built in 1985 to ensure that those that have shaped music and the industry are celebrated as well. Much like the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the RockWalk pays homage to musical greats by both hand prints and memorabilia to remember their contributions.
The RockWalk is located at the former site of the Oriental Theatre, which is now an appropriately place for the Guitar Center. From Johnny Cash to Phil Ramone, all musical genres are represented. The inductees are uniquely selected by past honorees to ensure the musicians are credible and deserving of the recognition. RockWalk has three different tours that patrons can take: the memorabilia tour, the virtual hand prints tour and an archives tour, all of which can be previewed on the website.
Pay homage to music greats with a trip to Hollywood and the RockWalk. Conveniently located on Sunset Boulevard, the RockWalk can be the first of many of Hollywood’s sites to see during your stay. The art deco Sunset Tower Hotel is an upscale choice that will keep you in the middle of all the action. Quell a ferocious appetite at the famous Sunset Grille Hollywood to keep the energy up to tackle the boisterous area.
Wherever you choose to stay or eat when in Hollywood, make sure you cruise Sunset Boulevard in an equally well-known and high-end vehicle like a 2013 SLK55 AMG Roadster from Mercedes-Benz of Encino. Expressing your refined taste for all to see will ensure you fit into the Hollywood demographic.
