Just to clarify, Jackson Browne is usually considered to be from Garden Grove in Orange County, CA, where is was raised. His musical collaborator David Lindley is from the up-scale neighborhoods of San Marino, LA County. Chris Hillman was raised in LA's Fernando Valley, but was born in San Diego County, a reasonable drive south.

Most of the people mentioned are from a long way away. Peter Asher's sister was an early girlfriend of Paul McCartney and was actually allowed to live with them by McCartney's parents as a member of the family.

Asher was part of the McCarthey-James Taylor-Apple Record connection that got "Gone to Carolina In My Mind" and other songs recorded.
