A magnet for British bands
The Reeperbahn, or Reeperbahnstrasse as it is better known, was a hotspot for British bands in the 1960s. Indeed, Reeperbahn has been the subject of several novels, including Karen Duve’s Regenromal. In the most egregious of cases, the Reeperbahn was the launching pad for the aforementioned Beatles. In fact, the Fab Four played the fabled Star-Club, the Kaiserkeller and the Top Ten, as well as several other lesser-known clubs.
The Reeperbahn was an unofficial hub for British music fans, but after the heydays of Beatlemania, a number of clubs began to book rock-and-roll groups. In addition to generating a healthy income for their members, the aforementioned occupants of the Reeperbahn were able to avoid the drudgery of working the rat pack. One of the most notable musicians to hail from the Reeperbahn was Udo Lindenberg, who subsequently released the song “Reeperbahn” on his own album, and later reunited with Jan Delay to perform it live.
In addition to snagging the most coveted seat in the house, the Reeperbahn proved to be the most auspicious locale for many other rockstars including The Smiths, The Who and The Hollies. Among the club’s denizens was a certain ‘David Bowie, who was a major fan of the likes of the aforementioned acts, as well as fellow ‘Beatles’ collaborators Paul McCartney, John Lennon and Yoko Ono.
