Some of the rock landmarks featured include the Barton Arms pub in Birmingham, which was Black Sabbath's early drinking den; The Leadmill Club, Sheffield, where local bands Pulp and the Arctic Monkeys started out; and Heddon Street, London, where the cover of David Bowie's iconic album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars was shot in the 1970's.
