Rock + Roll Bar – the sordid past…
Rock + Roll Bar was conceived over 25 years ago as a hangout for the gypsies tramps and thieves of Manchester. Regular guests included Liam Gallagher and Mani from The Stone Roses – Mani later becoming a regular guest dj at the night. After a few short months of opening The Rock + Roll soon became the ONLY place to be on a Friday Night and blagged itself into the aristocracy of Manchester Club Life – a club legend was born.
Sir John Peel
One of the Club’s lasting memory highlights was when Sir John Peel was invited to celebrate the Rock + Roll Bar’s 1st birthday. On the night Sir Peel did what only he can do –plugged in a microphone and promptly took the piss out of the terrible dancing he was witnessing. Genius.
Other highlights include A DJ Sound Clash between Coronation Street and Emmerdale which was won by Jeff Percy – Emmerdale’s Mr Nasty Cain Dingle , who ripped it up big style and earnt the respect of the resident DJS – so much so that they invited Jeff to join them as a regular weekly DJ – Jeff’s inclusion to the resident DJ line up was also welcomed by club management as bar takings were up by 42% when Jeff was in attendance!
After 5 short years The Rock + Bar spontaneously combusted in a spectacular fashion when the police turned up at the club to arrest resident DJ Phil Bad Ass Beckett on charges of racketeering and growing reefer in the DJ Box.
