The Tower of London and the Tower Bridge, Hyde Park? Not negging them, I'm just trying to find out what exactly I am supposed do there, because I haven't the foggiest. (Appropriate adjective for a London trip, right mate?)

I'm pretty sure a music store is out, but fish and chips and a drink at a real pub with Dunc is in. I just need more info about what you do at these attractions. I have the where's, I need the why's now. Would love to find an open mic blues jam but that's not a necessity.

About the Abbey Road photo, Bernard Purdie claims that's him in the photo lol. The guy just doesn't know when to quit.

I think I want to see Abbey Road Studios too, I think. Any reason why not?
The Natural History Museum is superb if you have an inquiring mind. Larry, I'm going to do my best to stay on for a day after the show (if you're not sick of me by then). It's logistically difficult to do, but how often am I going to get such a great hang opportunity?

As for Abbey Road Studios, I used to know some people in there, but I strongly suspect they're all gone now (they were all 10+ years older than me at the time). You can't just wander in to the studio. I'll ask, but I'll probably be told to go pound sand :(

Still not sure if Grea's making a star appearance ;)
