The Famous 3 Kings
Once the Nashville Rooms: Sex Pistols amongst others played here
Location: 171 North End Road, W14 9NL
Description: As the Nashville Rooms, this west London pub once upon time was one of the high spots of the London new-wave circuit.
Among the bands that played early gigs here were the Sex Pistols, The Jam, Siouxsie & The Banshees and Joy Division.
Sadly, a number of years ago the pub was reinvented as one of London's premier sports pubs - which if you think about it...is ridiculous.
When will people ever learn! Why not pay it a visit and think back to the good old days of legendary music
