Wonderful choice - as a kid it was my favorite building in LA. The concept was sublime, and the execution was perfect.

Yes, excellent building. I saw it once, sadly didn't manage to get a decent photo of it myself.

And now that Capitol has been merged with EMI and probably going on the auction block, the speculation is the building will be sold off and turned into condos. Another magnificent piece of pop culture history will lose its meaning...
