    This is Los Angeles; a better question might be - who isn't here? Well, maybe not from here, but an awful lot of musicians end up here eventually.

    I grew up in the Bay Area; Redwood City. I am not aware of any big folks from here; right next door in Palo Alto is where Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks went to school at Menlo-Atherton High.

    Speaking of Palo Alto, this band The Warlocks came out of there. I think they did okay. ;)

    Oh, and The Donnas are also from Paly.

    Steuart Smith (Eagles) grew up a block away from me in Baltimore. Nice guy who taught us songs. He could play any instrument.

    The guys from At the drive in/Mars Volta and Bobby Fuller are the big ones from the city I grew up in. It’s a military town, so a lot of people lived there for a bit. Stevie Nicks, Adam Duritz claim it...

    The town I’m actually from, Anthony Tx/Nm, has Nikki Sixx and Jimmy Carl Black as notable past residents. I think Sixx spent just childhood there with his grandparents.
