I was in L.A. for Thanksgiving. I live in AZ so it's only and 8 hr drive. Anyway when I was in L.A. For honor of River. I went to sunset Blvd. I got there early..to early. First I went to the front of the Viper room. I was 5 hrs before doors opened, so i relaxed. This was the place I was going to stop smoking cigars. 3 hours from that point would be the last time I smoked a cigar. Back to River. I walked down to the Sunset Tower Hotel. The last place river stayed before he died. I had time to kill so I walked out by the pool. Laurence Fishburne was there. He was talking to a man at a table. I thought Morpheus.That's cool. I stayed there for and hour just getting a feel for the place. I walked from the Hotel to the viper room. with parking like it is, i'm thinking this might have been his last walk. If not the hotel was a place he stayed at alot, so I'm sure he walked sunset. sometimes. i walked it with great respect. I could not stay til they open the viper room, i had my family waiting in palmdale. Next time i go, i will plan things so i can go inside the last place River was. I smoked my last cigar where he fell outside the front door, and left Sunset, I went thru the hills. River was at a party there that same night he passed.

Doing what I did was fine. Next time I go to L.A. I will go inside the viper room. I feel I need to see the bathroom, where this great actor spent his last real moment alive. Now I have another reason to go back, and give River another trip to sunset.

I hope that you stay on the right track with your promise to quit smoking. River would be proud of you... and of course, your wife and everyone else who loves you :-)

Hi Jaydean, I dont mean to take anything away from your fantastic trip to the Viper room and how great it was to see Laurence Fishburn at the Hotel however, I need to straighten out a few misconceptions you have about the night River died.
First he did not stay at the Sunset Tower Hotel. He had a room next to George Sluizer's at the now closed Nikko Hotel on La Cienega Blvd.(which became Le Meridian, and is now being converted into condos)several miles away. He did not walk there but was driven in a studio limo to the Viper room from Jeremy London's house in the Hollywood Hills just above.
lastly the front door and entrance of the Viper is on larrabe. The Sunset door is actually the back door but you are right that it is the place where he died out side that door near the parking meter that today you only see where it was located as they all have been moved.
So next time you go back to see the inside of the Viper Room you will understand it all much better.

Yours,
BARRY
