What was all the fuss about the Sunset Strip in the 1960s? The answer comes in a series at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood this weekend (starting Friday July 31st, if you're checking out this website early), introduced by Domenic Priore, author of "Riot on the Sunset Strip: Rock 'n' Roll's Last Stand in Hollywood." John talks with him about Saturday's movies.
