    I like the Band/Dylan stuff. I've visited some of those places.
    Big Pink and the corner where Dylan crashed his Triumph.
    The basement tapes were recorded right behind the garage door.

    The link below is the road where Dylan crashed. The exact location is uncertain.
    He alternately told that he hit an oil spot and that he was blinded by the sun.
    I suspect he made the beginner mistake of feeling his oats and carrying too much speed into a corner. Every rider has done it. Once.

    I saw it some time ago.
    It's very great.
    The same 2 guys created a lot of the album covers of the most classic albums ever.

    A very detailed site and the FB page is fantastic. A European equivalent would be interesting, but it would take a lot of time and equipment. It is probably a young person's job!
