TIM BARRON explores London’s musical history.
“Fantastic! Tim is knowledgable, enthusiastic and did a great job with the virtual tour.”
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. Join Tim Barron (an accomplished rock musician) for a virtual stroll through the highs and lows of London’s rock world. Let’s start on the zebra crossing outside Abbey Rd studios. Apart from ‘that’ album, Britain’s first rock ‘n’ roll single ‘Move it’ was recorded there, as well as the first Dolby sound recordings and ‘The Dark side of the Moon’ and…
On to the roof top location of the Beatles last gig. Next it’s the Bag O’ Nails where Jimi Hendrix played one of his first London sets, Ziggy’s photo shoot, The Sex Pistols’ abode, the studios where ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ and ‘All Right Now’ were recorded, plus the offices where ‘Your Song’ and ‘Oliver’ the musical, were written. Spot the pub where the Stones met and the basement studio where they made their first recordings. Freddie’s house and the Pink Floyd’s ‘Animals’ cover shoot will be discussed before we end up in Tin Pan Alley were Adele first played. This is now the centre of the vintage and classic guitar district.
“It’s as though Tim was there when it happened! Great insights.”
