Remember this place well. It was the premier entertainment center in all of SoCal & beyond in it's day. Too bad nobody wanted to save it from the wrecking ball. So much for the farsighted city officials in El Monte. That place would have made a fabulous rock 'n roll museum. Oh well!

Hi.......I live in El Monte..I know that they recently tore down a small portion which remained of the Legion Stadium down. I'm curious.....When was it built and what year did they take the wrecking ball to what should have been a Music landmark. I'd appreciate it if someone could give me that information.

Great idea, a rock and roll museum. Short-sighted indeed.

"No levis or capris, please!" lives on though.
