Palmers Green is, frankly, not very rock and roll. Though we did once have a member of the Shadows in our midst (and Cliff once lived in Winchmore Hill, in Calne Road, pop fans). And Joe Strummer. And 2011 Eurovision Winner and vanquisher of Jedward, Niger Jamal. And we were once mentioned in a top 10 hit, in the days when you had to sell a lot of records to have one.
Rod Stewart and Emma Bunton at various times lived in Broad Walk.
