New online map charts the history of the Rolling Stones in London

27 April 2016

The interactive map charts the story of the Rolling Stones in London in 200 points and takes visitors through their concert history, the studios where they worked, and places of interest - including their homes, hang-outs and the inspiration behind some of their songs. The map can be viewed here: www.musicheritageuk.org/maps/stones-in-london.html 

Music Heritage UK, the charity which exists to promote, protect and preserve our popular music heritage has released the map to coincide with Exhibitionism, the band’s official celebration of their history which is currently taking place at the Saatchi Gallery in Chelsea, London.

The map was created on the Carto DB platform, with research from a variety of sources, including a number of fan-based online resources, books and news articles.

The map can also be embedded on any additional website by clicking the icon in the top right of the map window and following the online instructions.

James Ketchell, Chief Executive of Music Heritage UK said, “We wanted to create a map which appeals to the hardcore, as well as the casual, fan and hope that all will enjoy exploring online the places where Stones history happened. We’re delighted with the results.”

The charity is already working on future maps based around other musical greats, including charting Bob Dylan and Jimi Hendrix’s time in the UK. Future iterations of the map will also include additional audio and video content.
