this is from seen…
“In 1984 “Blade 1” and I went to Hollywood, California on a mission to leave our mark. We bombed from Venice Beach to the Sunset Strip.
The following morning on the flight back home, all I could think about was the “HOLLYWOOD” sign. To me, that was Hollywood’s prize possession and we didn’t hit it! A few months later I returned to Hollywood alone. My sole mission this time around was to paint the Hollywood sign.
