Joseph "Joe" Perez of Los Angeles, California. In the 1960s Joe was known as one of the best custom upholsterers in Southern California, and he did many of Larry Watson's interiors. Marshall, who used to work for Larry between 1966 and 1967, remembers Watson once telling him that "you'll never win best interior with black."[1] When Marshall worked for Watson, Joe had a shop at 4819 Nobel Street in Los Angeles, and diamond and pleats were his speciality.
