Nearly everyone has heard of the legendary rock band Journey.
In 1973 Herbie Herbert founded, managed and produced the multi-platinum record
band while he pioneered and transformed the way we watch stadium concerts. The
video screens and high-tech productions that dominate tours today were developed
by Herbie's production company which we know today as Nocturne Productions.
(www.nocturneproductions.com) Nocturne is currently touring Elton John, Paul
McCartney, Bruno Mars, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Metallica and Def Leppard just to
name a few and of course, Journey.
So why mention this music trivia for "BACC Cobra's to the Coast" ?
Well, Herbie Herbert besides being a legendary recording industry manager &
promoter is also uncle to BACC's Andres Triplis. Andreas mentioned to his uncle
that we would be traveling past his home outside of Gualala on "Cobra's to the
Coast" and we were invited to stop by Herbie's home "Skibo" for our lunch stop.
While there, we are invited to enjoy the trails which lead you around the vast
property to fern grotto's, water falls, towering redwoods, garden's and the rugged
pacific coast line from a number of vistas including "The Office." Also enjoy Herbie's
flair for design in places like the Jerry Garcia Fire Circle or the Love Shack which
houses some of Herbie’s personal collection of rock memorabilia.
Among Herbie’s non-music endeavors:
While we are being welcomed with 'Open Arms' , remember this is a private home
and do respect Herbie's hospitality.
