News, Tips & Bargains : New Tour for Rock 'n' Rollers

More inclined to walk on the wild side than sing along with a symphony? The "Rock and Roll Tour of New York" is a new 2 1/2-hour tour of recording studios, nightclubs, restaurants, music stores, video locations and places where stars were born, went to school, rehearsed, wrote, debuted, partied, crashed--and burned.

Some of the more than 50 sites include the spots that inspired Joni Mitchell's "Chelsea Morning"; the homes and hangouts of Jimi Hendrix, Frank Zappa and Madonna, and the place where John Lennon was murdered.

It's the brainchild of Danny Fields, publicist for the Doors and Cream and manager of Iggy Pop and the Ramones. Tours begin and end at the Hard Rock Cafe on West 57th Street. Tickets are $25 and reservations are recommended. For information and reservations, call (212) 807-ROCK.
