There are many ways to travel, taste new dishes, try a new sport or follow in the footsteps of your idols. The greatest rock stars have left their mark in a special place. It could be their hometown, a famous studio or a legendary concert hall. Here are some indications of the most rocky places in the world.
Perhaps the best-known album cover is The Beatles crossing the street from Abbey Road. It is located in London in the boroughs of Cardem and Westminster. Every year, millions of tourists come to take their picture at this intersection. The famous pedestrian crossing of the street was registered in the British national heritage in 2010. Apart from the Beatles, many other artists recorded in the eponymous studio including in particular, Oasis, Radiohead or Pink Floyd.
On the other side of the Atlantic, more precisely in New York, Manhattan, is erected the most rock hotel of all time. The Chelsea Hotel was for several years the place where the greatest artists of the 1970s resided. Among the musicians we remember Sid Vicious, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix and Joan Baez. But we also find a large number of writers and visual artists who have stayed, most often free of charge, at this address. Since 2007, the hotel has been on sale but its lobby is still open to the public.
For fans of the King, the city of Memphis, Tennessee is the place to be. Graceland, Elvis Presley’s villa, is considered the second most visited house in the United States, after the White House. In particular, you can admire the singer’s stage clothes, his gold records and his numerous automobiles. Every year on August 16, the day of the King’s death, there is a fan rally in Graceland.
