The Cradle of British Rock Music since ’62.
What was the Ealing Club?
The Ealing Club will forever be remembered as the birthplace of British Rhythm and Blues and the Rolling Stones.
Throughout 1962 the Rolling Stones ‘cut their teeth’ at the Ealing Blues Club, eventually forming the legendary line-up of Mick, Keith, Brian, Bill, Ian and Charlie and playing here together for the first time in Jan ’63.
As the home of Alexis Korner’s Blues Incorporated, the Ealing Club led the way for future legends such as Jack Bruce, Ginger Baker, Eric Clapton, and many more of the first generation of British Rock music.
Eric Burdon (The Animals), Manfred Mann, Rod Stewart, and The Who played the Ealing Club.
The Ealing Club as we know it closed it’s doors in March ’66, but the spirit lives on here in Ealing.
