My Review

The only tour we had booked in advance! If you are interested in Rock music, Punk, or just want to hear about interesting characters from an excellent, knowledgeable, enthusiastic guide, then this is a MUST! Bobby Pinn could well be a legend in the NY scene.. he has actually 'walked the walk', he's not an outsider reading from a script.. well, ok he has some accompanying visual aids, but he obviously lives, breathes and cares for the stuff he talks about. That was equally as important as the tour itself for us. If you want to know why the New York Dolls posed outside The Gem Spa on the back cover of the first LP then he will tell you. If you want to see where Charlie Parker, Madonna, or Iggy Pop lived then he will show you. You too can see the very wall featured on the cover of the first Ramones LP!. And hearing the story of why it was this wall is pretty funny.... that's what Bobby brings to it, lots of anecdotal stuff along with the 'I Was There' knowledge. You won't resist buying his book which he shamelessly plugged at the end of the tour either, before pointing us in the direction of William Burroughs' old haunt, The Bunker. Can't recommend this enough!!!!!!!!! Oh, and if you're reading this Bobby, we sadly never did get to try an egg cream.... perhaps next time????!!!
