Music And West Hampstead
Decca: The Birth Of Rock ‘N’ Roll
Now a rehearsal space for The English National Opera, 165 Broadhurst Gardens spent 80 years as the home of Decca Records. Their studio here is where ‘King of Skiffle’ Lonnie Donegan recorded the album “Rock Island Line”
The Beatles’ Famous Decca Audition
On 1 January 1962, The Beatles auditioned for Decca Records and were rejected. This is widely regarded as the biggest mistake in the history of the Music Industry. Here’s a well-updated Wikipedia page on the subject, and here is the remastered original audition tape:
The Railway Pub & The Klooks Kleek
The building next to the old Decca building was and still is The Railway pub, now best known as somewhere for football fans to congregate before heading up the Jubilee line to Wembley. The Railway pub has a fantastic musical legacy, as does the now closed Klooks Kleek club above, which hosted Jimi Hendrix, The Rolling Stones and Eric Clapton (who famously had a guitar stolen from there one night!)
Famous Musical Residents
Celebrated musical residents past and present include:
- Joan Armatrading
- Chaka Khan
- Dusty Springfield
