Lair offered some behind the scene stories of HHIS

|L. A. WEEKLY ON XANADU
The alternative weekly newspaper L. A. WEEKLY just
came out (in both pint and their web site) an article on
Xanadu, thanks to this weekend's telecast of the Rock
& Roll Hall of Fame that will feature ELO's induction.
The article (HERE) is a good write-up and featured a
short new interview with Robert Greenwald. The writer
does lean quite a bit on the 'roller disco' label a bit but
it is still a fine read.
As a side bar, the paper, through the official
co-operation with Universal Studios, manages to hunt
down many of the shooting locations, including the
mysterious Platinum Palace. Great detective work!
You can read that piece HERE!
