Gibson's Greatest Rock Venues

The folks at Gibson are good at making guitars. They are less good at making lists. This list of their 10 Greatest Venues amounts to little, as it's simply a list of some obvious places that were hotbeds of different rock movements at some time or another. It's hard to argue with because I've never been to any of them (except for the lobby of The Apollo), but it's a list nonetheless, and my desire to go back in time to Max's Kansas City and CBGB's is keeping me interested.

Apollo Theater (New York)
Cavern Club (Liverpool)
CBGB (New York)
Crocodile Cafe (Seattle)
The Fillmore (San Francisco)
First Avenue and 7th Street Entry (Seattle)
40 Watt Club (Athens)
Marquee Club (London)
Mac's Kansas City (New York)
Whisky-A-Go-Go (Los Angeles)

There you go...
