This may be common knowledge but it was new to me. I watched the BBC show on Rod Stewart and at one point he talks about going to listen to the Stones in the cellar of a warehouse on Bermondsey Street. A quick visit to Google brought up this article: http://www.thestage.co.uk/features/2013/04/pink-floyd-at-bermondsey-street/

Summary: The cellar of 47 B street, the home of The Stage, was used by the Stones, The Faces, Pink Floyd, Rod Stewart and others as a practice studio during the late 60s and the 70s.

Morrissey filmed part of his video to "last of the famous international play boys" on Bermondsey St. Check it out on YouTube.

Great article - I first heard about this Bermondsey Street connection when Ian McLagan was on Ronnie Wood's show on Sky Arts. I think they mentioned
on that show drinking in a pub called the King's Head after rehearsals - is that the same pub that's on Tooley Street?
