Truly Julie on E. 7th St. Look familiar? Very famous album cover!I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Every inch of NYC is gold! Maybe for this post we’ll say… gold records. Heck…platinum! The walking tour Rock Junket is one of the
best ways to discover the wealth of rock history throughout this glorious city. Wanna know where Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin first sold out shows (tickets were $4 then!!)? What shoebox apartment did Madonna live in before she was…well…Madonna? Pinn is your guy to answer the aforementioned…and perhaps…any rock question! He’s a human encyclopedia (for those of you too young to know what an encyclopedia is…it’s Google on paper) for any rock facts. In fact, he looks like a rock star with his bleach blond hair. My Rock Junket tour was in the East Village…and I tell ya what…I’ll never walk down those streets quite the same again. It’s just amazing the music legends that mingled in this 4 block radius. I hear the West Village Rock Junket tour is pretty awesome, too…with all the Bob Dylan sites. So New Yorkers…do yourself a favor and get to REALLY know your city…and visitors…find out why this city REALLY ROCKS. I leave you with these famous words by Jimi Hendrix: Rock is so much fun. That’s what it’s all about – filling up the chest cavities and empty kneecaps and elbows.
