Please note we're not intending to help stalkers, so locations which are still currently owned/used by members of the Stones and their immediate family have been omitted, unless there is a justifyable and historical reason to mention a specific location.
In these instances we have moved the pins to the nearest geographical location (ie. town/village/suburb) and it will be clearly stated in the relevant pin's entry.
Bibliography - online The content has been written by Music Heritage UK. We used a number of online sources as part of our research:
Odeon Cavalcade which explores the architecture and history of UK cinemas through photography.
Arthur Lloyd which looks at the history of theatres and music halls.
A number of online articles, reviews and interviews in The Guardian, The Independent, The Telegraph and The Daily Mail.
Bibliography - offline As well as web-based sources, we also used a number of books as part of our research:
Life by Keith Richards.
Stoned and 2Stoned by Andrew Loog Oldham (the band's first manager).
We sourced a number of quotes from early concert attendees from Richard Houghton's excellent book on the Stones - You Had to Be There: The Rolling Stones Live 1962 to 1966.
Tony Sanchez's totally unofficial book on the band, Up and Down with the Rolling Stones.
Christopher Stanford's biography of Mick Jagger.
Images Images come from a variety of sources (including ourselves, Wikipedia and related sites, Flickr, the Stones Vault) and are linked to at the bottom of each entry. Music Heritage UK is a charity and all images are included for historical/educational/cultural purposes only. Every effort was made to find the original owners.
If you are the image rights holder, and would like your content removed, please email us here and we'll look into it and take down the offending item.
Platforms Our maps currently use the Carto platform (formerly "CartoDB") as it has given us the best in terms of flexibility and presentation. The images are hosted externally on Ultra IMG. For more on why we chose these services, their limitations, and our next steps in terms of adding extra functionality, please see our blog post which summarised our findings from working on the map.
Proud to use the platform.
Mistakes? Additions? Ideas? Future themes?
Before you ask... please bear in mind we're on version one of our map platform, and we currently can't embed content from YouTube, Spotify or elsewhere! We're working on bringing this functionality to our maps in the future.
However, please do get in touch with us if there's something else we've missed, got wrong or simply forgot about! We'd love to hear from you!
If you like what we've done, and want to support our work on future music maps and adding new functionality to them, please donate to Music Heritage UK now! Your gift will go a long way in helping us to release more music maps!
