Description

This tour covers past and present Rock landmarks in bohemian Soho and the North London neighborhoods of Camden Town, Islington and St John’s Wood. In addition to many Beatle-related sites, including the Abbey Road crossing, the theatre they owned, the early NEMS office and McCartney’s office, you’ll also see over 50 other icon locations bringing to life the colourful histories of classic, progressive, punk and Brit-Rock acts. You’ll see and hear about Soho clubs such as the Marquee, Ronnie Scott’s, the 2is The Vortx, and legendary UFO, Trident Studios where Queen, Genesis, Bowie, Bolan and others made seminal albums. On ‘Tin Pan Alley’ you’ll hear about the Stone’s first recording session, Elton’s ‘Woolworth’ albums and how Bowie lived in a caravan. You’ll see where the Sex Pistols rehearsed and lived, where Bob Dylan played his first London gig, and where Hendrix and Phil Lynott, amongst many past and present guitar heroes, bought their instruments.How about these for iconic sites! Where Pink Floyd cut ‘The Wall’ and Joy Division made ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’; where U2 played first London gig in front of 8 people; where the Sex Pistols made ‘Nevermind…’ and Clash ‘London Calling’; where Hendrix first burnt his guitar and Bowie became ‘Ziggy’; where Jimmy Page cut his first disc in Joe Meek’s home studio (the ‘Telstar’ man); where Elton John tried to commit suicide. Also on this fantastic tour, apartments and homes of Bob Marley, Pete Townsend, Elton, the Sex Pistols, Ritchie Blackmore, Bowie, Syd Barrett, the Gallagher brothers, and where Amy Winehouse ended her short and problem-filled life. It’s sex, drugs and rock’n’roll!
