  • Capitol Records is iconic. It would be really cool if they had tours, but it is an open business. The shape of the old 45 record and the needle up on top, when you point it out you will get ooohs and ...  more »
  • This place does not disappoint. I had seen it from the freeway many times but never up close. It was worth a peek. Wish I could have seen the inside. But very cool.  more »
  • Swung by as a part of my day-long tour. The building is a site to behold. It's circular structure is a first of its kind and represents a stack of records on a record player.  more »

  • This is an iconic building with music history and future. There aren't events held around the building once in a while. I went for the Selena Star Ceremony and it was a lot of fun with a large crowd and a screen to show the speakers and events as the occur.
  • Great views nearby if the Hollywood sign. I would like to have seen the inside. I took several photos. No way I would miss the stars up the street and check out HOLLYWOOD BURGERS great food!
  • Awesome to just look up and know Amazing Legends walked through those doors, and Recorded ... somewhere,... Upstairs etc Quite a Memorable Experience for me, and Emotional, as I am a Talented Singer and Songwriter. I was the same way, on Music Row, Nashville, Tennessee The Stars out front on Sidewalk, awesome. Being a DJ, and Radii Personality, as well as Musical myself, and Born into Music, I Recognize many Celeb Names, far before my Time, some before my Parents time as well. It's an Amazing feeling standing in front. I wanted to walk in and Audition. Seriously. I may still do just that. Any rate, really COOL FEELING. I FELT HONORED to even see that Building at all,... standing Strong
  • Walking those corridors full of pictures, full of stories... it was like walking in a bookstore of sounds and songs... suddenly hearing some jazz, or some vocals, some saxophones, or some pianos... Hard to believe you are walking between the same walls all these masters have walked before...
  • This place is an all time classic but it has seen better days. Every time I pass it I can't help but think of all the legendary people who have past through these doors.
