    Thoroughly enjoyable and informative tour! Covers lots of music, art, personalities, club venues, and pop culture sites of importance in the city. Covers 70's and some 80's and 60's material. Tour guide Andrew was well informed, and a delight to be around. He encouraged asking questions and comments. Highly recommended!
