A place that has provided equipment for virtually every band to have come out of Los Angeles since the 1960s, Guitar Center pays tribute to its rock-star clientele with a Hollywood RockWalk, out front. The concrete slabs are imprinted with the talented hands of Van Halen, Bonnie Raitt, Chuck Berry, Dick Dale, Def Leppard, Carlos Santana, KISS, and others. Two standouts are Joey Ramone's upside-down hand and Lemmy of Motörhead's "middle finger salute." The store's mini-museum
displays signed sheet music and memorabilia like Bob Dylan's hat and harmonica.
