In the 1960's I lived at 27 Hurricane Ave in Venice CA, and Jesse Ed lived across the street. BAck in the day those houses were very few and far between. On any given street from Anchorage to Zephyr ave. (Streets went north to south alphabetically, Anchorage, Buckaneer, Catmaran, Driftwood, Eastwind, Fleet, Galleon, Hurricane, Ironsides, Jib, Ketch, etc all the way down the alphabet with a weird alley way right after Quarterdeck st, that wasnt part of the scheme.... THERE THAT PROVES I LIVED THERE HA HA HA!!!!
As I said, the houses were spaced far apart from each other (the mega building and expansion of Marina del Rey had not occurred yet, (but it was on the horizon and coming on STRONG! real Estate developers were all freaking out and foaming at the mouth.) and the houses had like 2 VACANT LOTS between each of them - all SAND LOTS since they were at the beach. So my street ad a vacant lot on the corner, my house, a vacant lot then another vacant lot and then Speedway Ave (North South) then you were RIGHT ON THE BEACH. Across the street wa a vacant lot, THEN Jesse Ed's house nexto to it, THEN 2 vacant lots before Speedway and the beach.
So Hurricane ave only had about 3 houses on it until about 1967 when the gradual development of condos started to happen. I tell you all this because this only meant one thing - all of the ACTION on my street was over at Jesse Ed's house! I went over there EVERY DAY after school and always in the summer. So yeah he was my MAIN guitar man back back in the day (2x).
Here is a photo of Jesse Ed's album cover and you can see it was taken in the vacant lot next to his house! 2L-04768a.jpg - Bild entfernt (keine Rechte)
