Welcome to VGT! Nice first map.

A couple of things to know for future submissions...
- Whenever possible, add a more info link. I plugged his wikipedia article on this map for you.

Randy 's house was foreclosed on by the bank. It was sold and made into a rehab centre that lost money and was sold then a family bought it then it became a B&B that lost money and sold again. Frank Sinatra never went there neither did the Beatles. Bruce Johnston is the only Beach Boy that was there. Randy didn't meet Ringo until 1995. He married his second wife in that house in 1983 and is now divorced from her. He hasn't lived in that house for 23 years.
