THE HISTORY OF ROCK & POP IN THE WEST END
On this episode of the Rock’n’Roll London Walk we have a rock star guide.
We will see…
The most expensive square on the English Monopoly board – Mayfair £400 – where Jimi Hendrix made his home.
The most celebrated theatre in British showbiz – The London Palladium – where the Rolling Stones made a stand against the old guard.
The most luxurious department store – Liberty’s – where David Bowie conceived his most famous look.
The most stylish street in the world of gentlemen’s style – Savile Row – where The Beatles played their final gig.
The most famous junction in the UK – Piccadilly Circus – where The Beatles launched themselves on international stardom.
With such a cast of characters, it’s all bound to end up in court – so we’ll visit the spot where Jagger, Johnny Rotten and two of The Clash were put on trial in the 60s and 70s.
