Everyone that has ever passed through Long Island’s easternmost town of Montauk seems to know of the Memory Motel. The name is also special to many Rolling Stones fans.
In 1975, while staying in Montauk at Andy Warhol’s Eothen compound, Mick Jagger began penning a song called Memory Motel. It is a ballad about love and life on the road.
We spent a lonely night at the Memory Motel
It’s on the ocean, I guess you know it well…
On the surface, the motel doesn’t appear to be anything special. The magic must come from the people who continue to belly-up to the bar and the fans of the music who are looking to touch a piece of the legend.
