The Most Famous Locations in Rock

From the crossroads where Robert Johnson sold his soul to the devil to the auditorium where Ozzy Osbourne bit the head of an unfortunate bat Fox in Rioh has mapped out the most important locations in rock 'n' roll history.

Fox in Rioh is a Google Maps that displays "the 440 destinations that made the history of rock 'n' roll". Click on any of the markers on the map and you can view the location in Street View, listen to a narrated story of why the place is important to rock history and read an account of the mapped location.

Two drop-down menus allow you to select locations associated with specific artists or choose to filter the locations shown on the map by genre of music.
