“Because of its friendly interface, I loved Rock Music Landmarks of London before I even started toying with it. With many more than 50 rock landmarks to learn about, this app is a steal at $1.99." - Appolicious
Want to re-trace the steps of The Beatles running from their fans in A Hard Day’s Night at Marylebone Station, or visit the ‘death flat’ once owned by Harry Nilsson, where both Mama Cass and Keith Moon died? Or see St.Martin’s College where The Sex Pistols played their very first gig, which became a hangout for future stars like Chrissie Hynde, Boy George and Sade.
The new iPhone app, Rock Music Landmarks of London will take you to these and dozens more. The app is a tourist guide for all music enthusiasts, which takes you to all the historically significant music sites that London has to offer and the stories that go with them.
With the enhanced map search feature, you can search for the nearest landmarks to you and let the App take you right to the doorstep. Once you're there you can listen to exclusive narration by Old Grey Whistle Test presenter 'Whispering' Bob Harris.
Every page on the app features photographs of the landmarks and you'll hear interesting stories and facts that haven't yet seen the light of day, and learn all you need to know about how London helped shape the music world.
So, if you want to see where Led Zeppelin set fire to a pile of money or the venue when Jimi Hendrix visited just hours before his death, this id the app to have.
Rock Music Landmarks is a beautifully presented App which is optimized for iPhone 4 retina display. It is a must-have App for any visit to the capital.

Rock 'n' Roll London - YEAAHHH!
I've been waiting on a concept like this Rock Landmarks of London. Being a proud Londoner and a rock music fan with an iPhone, this app is a defintely been the case for me of 'have iPhone - will travel'.
The venues covered and their stories are both iconic and eclectic. The app is basic easy to use. It's a great tool to entertain friends from out of town on a rock 'n' roll tourist guide of London (my french friends enjoyed it :)).
The voiceover by the legendary Whispering Bob Harris works well, like having your own famous tour guide telling you all the cool stories about the places and their music legacy.
Can't wait for an update! Wanna learn more about London's rock history. I'd love a hip hop version of this App for New York City! 'Hip Hop Landmarks of NYC'.
Awesome for music fans!
Got this app for a trip to london and it's wicked, shows you all the sites and tells you loads of info as you're walking, and even if not in london there's still lots of interesting music facts. really great experience for music fans!

As one who has immigrated to London with music interests, this app is really interesting to find the music landmarks that timeout couldnt poke a stick at. Well presented, and the locations near u feature is genius. cant wait to visit them!
