A Conversation for The Music Pilgrim's Guide to London

Stop Looking, Start Listening.

Don't just go and look at the sights, take in some sounds as well.
Go and see a gig at the 12 Bar. Go over charring cross rd to the Borderline and look at the listing of the people who have played there (and the photos on the walls as you walk down the stairs). Hear some jazz at the 100 club (100 Oxford St) and again see who has played there in all the photos on the wall.

Three ideas, make your own up. If you like music, go and see and hear some.

Good idea, Phil. Why donÕt you write an Entry about it?

This Entry concentrates on all the things that happened in the past, which newcomers to London wouldnÕt know about. It also assumes that most people know where to find good sounds Ð or if they donÕt, TimeOut does.

But an updated music venue guide is a good idea. Why donÕt you write it? smiley - smiley

I make the assumption that people do know about Abbey Rd, Carnaby St and the others. I don't assume that they will know where to go to find good sounds.

Well, that is where we differ.

I can think of dozens of sources for London music information: to name but a few, Time Out; WhatÕs On; Q mag; Evening StandardÕs Hot Tickets; The GuardianÕs Guide; plus virtually every female and male magazine on sale. Not to mention the Internet.

But where do you find out the location of RingoÕs pad during the 1960s, which he also rented to John Lennon and Jimi Hendrix?

Look forward to your Entry on Music Venues. smiley - smiley
