Swinging London: Holy Hendrix! A Half-Century Ago!


The usually staid British capital city is remembering pop musical icons from 1966 with the 50th anniversary of Swinging London. The Beatles had already conquered America two years earlier, and others were achieving similar world popularity.

Jimi Hendrix, the Rolling Stones, Pete Townsend, Tom Jones, The Dave Clark Five, The Who, Freddie and the Dreamers, and Herman’s Hermits were rocking on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean.

Of course, this is also the year all of Great Britain is celebrating the 90th birthday Queen Elizabeth II. If you’ll be in town for the royal festivities, reserve a day to relive some of the rock’n’roll memories and locales of 1960s Swinging London. Check with local tour companies about schedules.
