Travel through the history of rock with this app. Rockspots London guides you through the streets where rock history was made: Where John met Yoko. Where Jimi died. Where Sex Pistols were founded. Where East 17’s Brian Harvey was run over by his own car.
The British Invasion, Mods, Psychedelic and Progressive Rock, Punk, New Romantics, Britpop and Techno - The London music scene has been central in developing rock and pop over the last 50 years, and this app takes you to the places where it all happened. Where they lived, met, played, hung out and died. The schools, scenes and clubs. Many of the historical spots are long gone, but now you can relive the story.
Through search criteria such as Home, Concert Venue, Birthplace, Death Site, Burial Site, Album Cover and Recording Studio you’ll be closer to the story than ever before. Rockspots London lets you search for specific artists, music video locations or the story behind a song. Ever wondered where Small Faces’ Itchycoo Park is? Or where Paul McCartney met his Fool on the Hill?
