You might have done a double-take looking at this photo. What is it? Well, it's the bar at The Rigger rock pub in Newcastle under Lyme - where guitar fret-boards take the place of bar-pump handles...!
Stylish or what?
The Rigger is a proper rock dive. On the walls (painted black obviously) are inscribed quotes from bands such as Metallica through to Thin Lizzy. Skull & crossbones designs (naturally) line the walls; and there is live music of the loudest kind most nights. So it's no surprise that guitars have pride of place at the bar.
And this is no jumped-up newcomer. As far as I'm aware, the Rigger has a history as a home of rock for nigh-on forty years; and maybe more than that. One day the history will be written!
