'We turned up expecting to spend 30 minutes, but ended up staying two hours - so much to see!'

'It's like having a backstage pass to see the most influential rock and roll stars who shaped modern music.'

'As visceral as being there. Moments in history that comment as much on music as fashion, politics and personality.'
