The Rock and Roll Report Travel Guide: Historic Rock and Roll Clubs

There is no better place to enjoy rock and roll than in a dingy, sweaty, smoke filled rock and roll hole in the wall. This article lists what it considers to be the world’s 7 greatest rock and roll clubs (mostly in the U.S.). Now, this list is obviously extremely subjective (where’s Toronto’s El Mocambo or the 40 Watt Club in Athens, Georgia?) but is a good start. What do you consider to be the greatest rock and roll clubs either still existing or past haunts long since torn down? Would/should the Hard Rock Cafes and House of Blues type chains be considered? Let me know.
Later.
