NEW! The Rolling Stones in London Walking Tour launches on Thursday 5th May 2016!
Curated & guided by the team that brought you the Rock'n'Roll London Walk, we'll be prowling in the blueswailing, drug-busting, establishment-baiting footsteps of the savage young Stones in their 60's pomp – from the studios where they created to the shebeens where they, er, socialised – this walk provides the ideal "bonus tracks" to Exhibitionism, the blockbusting Stones retrospective at the Saatchi Gallery.
Meet at Tottenham Court Road station Thursdays at 2:30p.m. STARTS THURSDAY 5TH MAY 2016.
Daily Constitutional Editor & Rock'n'Roll London guide Adam Scott-Goulding writes… As a countdown to the Rolling Stones in London Walk I've picked 45 moments – tracks, busts, incidents, quotes – from the greatest story in Rock'n'Roll. These are the moments that made the legend…
Most critics agree that Aftermath is rather eclipsed in '66 by both The Beatles' Revolver and Dylan's Blonde on Blonde – but no overview of that pivotal year for rock'n'roll music is complete without giving this album its due.
In terms of the Stones' journey is is the first of their records to abandon R&B standards. Jagger and Richards are spreading their wings as songwriters and Brian Jones, in his final flourish, brings great colour to the arrangements. Under My Thumb, Mother’s Little Helper and Lady Jane feature.
A London Walk costs £10 – £8 concession. To join a London Walk, simply meet your guide at the designated tube station at the appointed time. Details of all London Walks can be found at www.walks.com.
