I am a total music geek. I thought it would be fun to start a POI with historic music sites across the contry.
Rock N' Roll, Country, Blues, anything music.
Just to give you some ideas:
Graceland, Motown, Chess Records Studio...
Locations were famous, or infamous, events occured:
Riot House, Haight Ashbury, Fillmore, Death Locations...
What have you guys got?
How about stuff like the Stone Pony and the Asbury Park Convention Center? If these work, I can get the coordinates to you.
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
(although I try to stay out of Cleveland for obvious reasons )
205 East Houston Street
San Antonio, TX 78205
lat, long: 29.426447,-98.491019
Robert Johnson (legendary blues musician) recorded an album in a temporary studio there in 1936.
Legend has it that Robert Johnson "sold his soul to the devil" at a crossroads in Mississippi, hence the song "Cross Roads Blues" and the movie "Crossroads".
These all work!
If you can add a sentence or two on what happened at the location, that would be great too.
The HOF is obvious...
Lubbock, Texas and where his and the Big Bopper crashed in Clear Lake, IA.
Tupelo, MS. Sun Records in Memphis, TN.
I'm on it. I will send you some co-ordinates.

I have submitted the file to Miss POI. I'll post again when it is online.
Thanks for reminding me about this file!!!

The file is not up and linked to the top of this discussion.
How did you NOT get the file up but still linked atthe top?!?!
sometimes a typo can be very entertaining. I blame it on having wet nails. Although one would think that I would want to type less words in that situation not more.
