New Yorker Bob Egan has one cool job title. The self-styled ‘pop culture detective’ spends his time tracking down the exact spots famous pop culture events took place. Once sure he’s got the right location an album cover was taken, or a famous film or television show was filmed, he documents, photographs and maps it on his website Pop Spots, superimposing the original vinyl cover on to the location as it looks today. It’s a treasure trove for the music nut and the ultimate travel guide for pop pilgrims.
