The Laurel Canyon Country Store's Interesting Musical History
...and Pamela Courson probably frequented the country store most of all. The contentious pair lived right behind the market at 8021 Rothdell Trail and opened their home to seemingly all artists and travelers who came past. According to Laurel Canyon lore, during a Morrison family fight, folks hanging out at the market would watch Jim's books and clothing flying out of the top windows.
In the '80s the Canyon shifted from bohemian nucleus to secluded enclave, and rock stars flocked to the neighborhood for the quiet life. But legends continued to frequent the Country Store in search of their favorite goods, including chocolate. Mick Jagger came for the "English Kit Kats on hand," while David Bowie repeatedly purchased Flakes, his favorite Cadbury chocolate bar.
To this day the Canyon boasts famous residents, including George Clooney, Christina Applegate and Werner Hertzog; they're still known to stop by the Canyon Country Store.
