Nags Head, Nuneaton, Warwickshire

Picture source: Alan Frehley

The Nags Head is located on Queens Road and opened in 1929.  This pub was Nuneatons premier live spot for gigs and was owned by an ex-Showaddywaddy bass guitarist who was an avid fan of live music, although he only seemed to have tribute bands play there. When he died in 2005, his wife tried to carry it on, but it soon went downhill and live acts started playing at the nearby Crew, who got some great acts to play there, not just tribute bands. She quit last year 2008, and it was boarded up overnight. Developers brought the derelict Kwik-Save and its car park which was next door to The Nags Head, and demolished them, and the talk is they are planning to buy the empty Nags Head for that extra land, for development.
