This is Manchester, one of the world’s greatest music cities. You see where Liverpool can only offer the Beatles, we have the Smiths! And Joy Division, The Fall, Oasis, New Order, Buzzcocks, John Cooper Clarke, Happy Mondays, the Stone Roses, the Hollies and, can you believe it, Van Der Graaf Generator. Now that really is a legacy. Match that New York!
So, if you are coming to Manchester, from Venice Beach, Venice or Little Venice, book a private music tour with Mojo’s Ed Glinert, co-author of Fodor’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Traveller series, 40 years a music writer and the country’s most prolific tour guide.
* PS. He loves the Beatles really, well A Hard Day’s Night and Help!, not so much Abbey Road, natch, and does the most interesting Beatles tours in Liverpool.
