1 RIOT HOUSE
Led Zeppelin played hard on the stage, and they played just as hard off of it. Zeppelin rented out multiple floors of the Continental Hyatt House hotel located in Los Angeles so that they and their entourage could do just about whatever they pleased. Their portion of the hotel was known as the “Riot House” because of certain activities that went on there. Perhaps the best story of all involves John Bonham allegedly driving a motorcycle that he had received as a birthday present through the halls of the hotel. Did it really happen? We sure hope so, because it just adds to the awesome legacy of one of the greatest bands of all time.
