Stars including MICKEY DOLENZ, Jack Nicholson and The Doors drummer John Densmore paid tribute to Whisky-A-Go-Go club founder ELMER VALENTINE in Los Angeles on Monday (26Jan09) as the late nightlife king was honoured with his own street. The celebrity group, which also included Lou Adler and The Mamas & The Papas star Michelle Phillips, gathered outside the famous Sunset Strip venue for the unveiling of the new street sign, which bears Valentine's name.
Blues great John Mayall and Johnny Rivers performed as part of a tribute show at the venue the club boss turned into a music mecca.
At the tribute, Nicholson joked, "He was a guy who looked like all seven dwarves," while rocker Densmore explained he had never met a club boss or promoter who "cared more about musicians".
Valentine died in his sleep on 3 December (08).
