In search of The Men They Couldn’t Hang in 1960s London
The Rolling Stones are celebrating 60 years and we’re staging a special walking tour to mark the occasion.
The walk is curated and guided by Adam Scott-Goulding (“⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Hugely knowledgable, brilliant storyteller” Howard D Google Reviews Jan 2022) and will prowl in the blueswailing, drug-busting, establishment-baiting footsteps of the savage young Stones in their 60’s pomp.
Join us for Act One of the greatest rock’n’roll story ever told.
The Places We Will Visit…
The Denmark Street recording studio where they recorded their first album
The locations of the venues of 1960s London – from the Marquee to The Scene and more
The locations of exclusive nightclubs where the stars made their playground
And, this being the Rolling Stones, we’ll also visit the court where both Mick Jagger and Brian Jones were tried for drug offences in 1968 and 1969.
The Period We Will Cover
London Music Tours always unfold the stories within a wider social and historical context. When searching for the young Rolling Stones we’ll also look at the 400 years of theatre history that provides the backdrop to the story of popular music. In this tour we will slow lok at…
1960s drug culture
Policing in the period
Politics & protest in the period
The shock of the new architecture of the 1960s
Andrew Loog Oldham – tyro svengali of the young Stones
Marianne Faithfull – chanteuse, actress, muse, songwriter
Our tour covers the period 1962 to 1969 – it ends in Carnaby Street – very near Oxford Circus tube.
As with our successful David Bowie In 60s London tour earlier in the year (“ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Fantastic… Kept us spellbound” Alexandra T Google Reviews January 2022) a ticket to this tour also includes access to FREE bonus content in the shape of an exclusive virtual tour which you can stream and watch in your own time. Your music guide Adam will take us to places too far from Soho for a walking tour – Dartford in Kent, Kensington, Earl’s Court and Chicago among them.
