Hulett, who grew up in Laguna Beach, was a writer and photographer on the rock scene for many years and interviewed numerous musical legends, but was captivated by the stunning originality of Led Zeppelin.

Dr. Arian Mowlavi derives pleasure from writing songs and composing music because it’s an artistic outlet. He has devoted his life to a career in cosmetic surgery for the same reason. “I always knew I wanted to be a surgeon,” he said. “During med school, I decided plastic surgery was special because you must be creative — every face and feature you work with is different.” Most of the time, Mowlavi can be found at Cosmetic Surgery Clinics in South Laguna, where he’s practiced solo as a board certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon for nearly four years.

In their own ways, the crashing of the waves and the honking of frustrated drivers searching for a rare parking space are part of life in Laguna. Rock 'n' roll is part of Laguna's soundtrack, and there are two shops in town to cater to the town's music fans. I took a break from the office to spend an afternoon at both stores, Sound Spectrum and Underdog Records.
