A Hollywood Tale: The Capitol Building
From her curvaceous vamp through her lucid mesh upper, the blushing kicks noted an unusual building resembling a stack of records on a turntable (nope, this ain’t your kids’ iPod!). The home of Capitol Records, this thirteen-story 1956 building has a blinking light that spells out “Hollywood” in Morse code. Capitol Records has hosted scores of famous recording artists over the decades including the original co-owner, Johnny Mercer, as well as Les Paul, Peggy Lee, Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Miles Davis, Judy Garland, The Beatles, The Beach Boys, Pink Floyd, Bonnie Raitt, Snoop Dogg, and Keith Urban.
