Beale Street, Bleeker Street, Haight-Ashbury, Sunset Strip, Music Row and Motown.
These are the streets that changed music history, according to Rolling Stone - or is it Chrysler? And of course, by Motown they mean West Grand Boulevard, but we’ll let that slide, shall we?
Elvis, Dylan, The Dead, The Doors, all those Motown hits, all that Country … no one’s gonna argue that some pretty important music came off these streets – and still does.
Here’s another one, though, that’s kind of a glaring omission: Abbey Road. A little band called The Beatles made a few hit records there, and I’m told they enjoyed a bit of influence in their day. Oh, and The Hollies, The Shadows, Pink Floyd, Radiohead and Oasis.
Oh wait a minute! Guess they don’t get many Dodge Challengers driving around London.
