This amazing portrait of the bizarre, shocking, weird, and wonderful moments that have come to define American popular culture is a follow-up to the critically acclaimed James Dean Died Here and Marilyn Monroe Dyed Here. A third collection of the locations where the most significant events in American popular culture took place, this offers a fully illustrated encyclopedic look at the most famous—and infamous—pop culture events, providing historical information on more than 600 landmarks as well as their exact locations. Included in the wacky and fantastic listing of landmarks and events are the Los Angeles park where Elvis Presley and his entourage would organize spirited touch football games against other celebrities, the birthplaces of Coca-Cola and the corn dog, the place where Ben Franklin flew a kite, the hotel where Rob Lowe's scandalous sex tape was filmed, Quentin Tarantino's video store, and the location where Tennessee Williams wrote A Streetcar Named Desire.
