Tim Barron draws our attention to a cataclysmic event that happened in the most unlikely of places
The date, 30th January 1969
The place, a roof top in Saville Row central London
The event, The Beatles last gig
The result, Screaming fans, traffic chaos and then the Police arrive.
Just one of the many stories to be shared on The UKToursonline Rock ‘n’ Roll stroll (next stroll on Sunday 24 July).
From the 50s to today, London has been the place for the greatest rock and pop talents to; perform, record, pose, misbehave, get clothed and hang out.
We visit the Bag O’ Nails where Jimi Hendrix played one of his first London sets, Ziggy’s photo shoot, The Sex Pistol’s abode, the studios where ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ and ‘All Right Now’ were recorded, plus the offices where ‘Your Song’ was written. Spot the pub where the Stones met up and the basement studio where they made their early recordings. We end up in Tin Pan Alley were Adele first played. Come join Tim for a Rock ‘n’ Roll Stroll on Sunday 24 July.
