Rock History

You Can Check Out Any Time You Like, But You Can Never Leave

If you are at all familiar with the history of rock and roll, you are familiar with the Chateau Marmont. This is the place where Jim Morrison fell out a second story window, where John Belushi tragically died and R.E.M. hosted listening parties for their Monster album. The Chateau Marmont is just one of the hotels featured in Gimme Shelter – Hotels where you get rock history along with a roof over your head by Robin Cherry, a fascinating look at some hotels that feature prominently in rock and roll lore. Take a quick glance before planning your next vacation or business trip.
