As regards the Eagles in Echo Park: Dollar for dollar, a little rock-and-roll nest was cheaper in the '70s, according to Nathan, who has lived in EP for 15 months.
That $60/month rent [paid by Glenn Frey of the Eagles] killed me, and I wanted to see how that stacked up against today. So I went to the Inflation Calculator to see. That $60/month works out to $288 in 2006 dollars!
That is a far cry from the $1300/month I'm shelling out these days (larger than my actual mortgage payment in Oakland). No wonder you could be a starving artist in LA back in the day. Makes you wonder where the next Eagles are coming from.
Hmm, the next Eagles. Maybe they'll do their hatching in pricier digs (for lack of a better word). Or maybe a rocky outcrop in the Angeles Forest.
