British Blues Birth Site Celebrated In New Documentary

(The Blues) The small London venue run by Blues Incorporated men Alexis Korner and Cyril Davies in the 1960s is to be celebrated in a new documentary. The Ealing Club entered music history in 1962 when Mick Jagger and Keith Richards met Brian Jones there, leading to the creation of the Rolling Stones. But its influence went much further Richards recently said: "Without the Ealing Club there might have been nothing."

Regarded as the birthplace of British R&B, it's now a bar known as The Red Room, with a blue plaque commemorating the events that once happened there.

But filmmaker Alistair Young wants to raise its profile in a project entitled Suburban Steps To Rockland. He tells This Is Local London: "Liverpool is celebrated for Merseybeat but west London was the birthplace of heavier guitar." more on this story
