Fodor's Review

The hardcore metal and rock scene is alive and well at the legendary Whisky A Go-Go, where Janis Joplin, Led Zeppelin, Alice Cooper, Van Halen, the Doors (briefly the house band), and Frank Zappa all played. On the Strip for more than five decades, the Whisky still favors underground acts.
