This week’s history lesson looks at the substantial heavy music scene spawned in the shifting Southern California sands that gave birth to modern rock bands like Eagles of Death Metal and Queens of the Stone Age. Cosmic flow and heavy flights courtesy of Kyuss, Fu Manchu, Mondo Generator, Unida, Nebula, Vista Chino, Throw Rag, Fatso Jetson, and many more. Know your Roots!
