Last November Sexy Hubby guest posted about his Black Star Riders Meet & Greet VIP Package experience at the O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire in London. During the weekend, his peregrination also took him to the iconic Denmark Street.
The history of the street, still housing the largest selection of instrument shops in the capital, is a dream for any musician, or anyone interested in music for that matter. The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Elton John, The Sex Pistols, Stevie Wonder, The Kinks, Bob Marley, to name but a few, all recorded in one building or another. David Bowie allegedly spent some time living in a camper van on Denmark Street. And Eric Clapton and Pete Townshend purchased guitars here too. In the 50’s and the 60’s, Denmark Street was a prime location for many record companies. And today, 12 Bar Club still offers a platform to bands every night.
Sexy Hubby was determined to visit this musical spot as he had just found out that Denmark Street was due to undergo a major redevelopment starting in summer 2014. Will this legendary area manage to retain its uniqueness? It remains to be seen.
