Jon Askew - Rock & Stroll: A Walk Around London's Greatest Hits [Book]
From Camden Town to Waterloo Bridge, Rock & Stroll is a witty and informative walking tour that takes in the sights and sounds of rock and pop music around the streets of London. On the way it visits Abbey Road, Warwick Avenue, Baker Street, Soho, King's Road, Clapham Common, Electric Avenue and many other iconic music locations as it strides through the beating heart of the city.
Part passionate lament and part love song to the capital, this fascinating book explores London's enduring influence on popular music and investigates many of the mysteries surrounding its connections to all musical genres, from rock, pop and punk through to reggae, jazz and folk: Where did Ziggy Stardust first fall to earth? Why was Bob Dylan feeling homesick in the Strand? Does Morrissey have a secret love of Fulham Football Club? Is The Beatles zebra crossing still The Beatles zebra crossing?
So if you've ever wondered where Jarvis Cocker fancies a late night coffee, why Eminem likes a bit of Chas & Dave or exactly what is a bra vibrationer, this book will give you all the answers.
Well what are you waiting for? It's time to get rocking & strolling, so grab yourself an A to Z guidebook, find your way up the junction and stop being a Cockney rebel, because London's calling, and we need to get to Waterloo before sunset.
