Detroit Rock City History Tour

  • Needs a date

  • Needs a location

  • Detroit's impact on rock music history can't be stated enough. I'm thinking that this can be something like a bus or virtual tour of the city's rock music landmarks, i.e.: Motown Museum, Grande Ballroom, St. Andrews Hall, etc.

    Regarding the suggestion that we get on a bus and drive from one famous rock and roll building to another: I'd rather stay in one place, talk among ourselves and drink something with alcohol. I'm serious. Staying at St. Andrews Hall seems like a good idea.
