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.
13/45. Andrew Loog Oldham
Madcap first manager of the Stones whose chutzpah helped the Stones get that first crucial leg up to Beatles-style superstardom. Fashioned their image as the Anti-Beatles, thus assuring their own niche. Became their manager at age 20, possessed of the notion that electric guitars plugged directly into the wall. Also produced Come On, the first single. Ian McLagen (of The Small Faces) commented that he "couldn't produce a burp after a pint of beer. "
