Ealing’s claim to fame is that many musicians spent formative years at the Ealing Club, London’s first rhythm and blues venue. The many music pioneers who lived, worked and played here include members of the Rolling Stones, the Who, Queen, Cream, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Dusty Springfield, Fleetwood Mac and many more.
This fact will be celebrated at a special session of the Chiswick Book Festival, held for the first time at Gunnersbury Park. The session, called ‘How West London Rocked the World’, highlighting The A-Z of Ealing Rock Music, will feature Robert Hokum, founder of Ealing Blues Festival, talking to Caroline Frost, author and former entertainment editor of Huffington Post.
Tickets are now on sale for the Chiswick Book Festival on the book festival website.
