Shallow Graves Nick Kelley is an avid musician and performer, and when asked why abandoned places, “I was watching some videos where people were walking through some abandoned banks and found the acoustics amazing. I then, got the idea that it would be cool to go to different abandoned places and perform while walking around and getting the story of the place.” Check out his video below, where Nick entertains us with “Rocky Raccoon”.

“Rocky Raccoon” is a song by the English rock band the Beatles from their 1968 double album The Beatles (also known as the “White Album”). It was primarily written by Paul McCartney, although credited to the Lennon–McCartneypartnership. McCartney began writing the song in Rishikesh, India, where the Beatles were studying Transcendental Meditation in the early months of 1968. John Lennon and Scottish singer-songwriter Donovan, who joined the Beatles on their retreat, also made contributions to the song.

Adding that, “Every place has a history whether it be an old abandoned farm house that once held a loving family, or a bank where people did their business. Now these places have been long forgotten, but they still hold an imprint of all the memories made within those walls.”
