In this episode, Rod Gruendyke, General Manager of the Sunset Marquis Hotel, joins the show to share epic tales from his time at this iconic property.

Celebrating 60 years of legendary stories and rock ‘n’ roll history this year, the Sunset Marquis is more than just a hotel; it’s a hidden gem. Nestled in the heart of West Hollywood, the hotel has long been a sanctuary for musicians and celebrities. It’s the kind of place that everyone’s heard of, but only a select few can pinpoint on a map—adding to its allure and mystique. Rock legends like U2, Elton John and Bob Marley have not just stayed here, but they’ve also created magic within these walls. Even Hollywood’s own Billy Bob Thornton has been a part of this hotel’s storied past! The hotel also has a recording studio where dozens of Grammy Award-winning records have been produced.

Join us as Rod shares personal anecdotes and unforgettable tales from his time at the property.
