Perry Farrell, the singer of Jane's Addiction, is said to have been inspired by Bill Graham in his vision to create the traveling festival called Lollapalooza. The headliners toured, and at each tour destination there were multiple stages and arts and crafts booths intended to promote local artists. In the past, festivals were held at a single destination; however, Farrell wanted to bring the experience to major cities across the U.S.
The Walk of Fame has been a Shoreline claim to fame since the early days of the Mountain View, CA amphitheatre. To wander the Walk, which winds in the outdoor area behind the stage, is to amble down a memory lane of outstanding performers like Jimmy Buffett, Prince and REM. Portrait photographs of these and many other artists, mounted on particle board and exposed to the weather, line the Walk and present themselves to the elements and visitors with the same confidence and unvarnished honesty of the artists in performance.
Wolfgang's Vault's collection of Walk of Fame photographs are the authentic, sometimes sun-faded originals and bear proudly the slight scratchmarks, defects and wear from their years on display in this outdoor fan gallery.
