Marquee Club (second location)
Status: Closed/re-opened elsewhere Notes: This venue was known mostly for hosting jazz and blues acts, including The Yardbirds, until the unheralded Who debuted Nov. 24, 1964. The band quickly gained a reputation that led to broken club attendance marks, and instruments. Early versions of “My Generation” were recorded at Marquee Sound Studios, just behind the club, in late August/September 1965. The band last played the Marquee in 1968.
