Hard Rock Cafe Copenhagen Memorabilia
Though her tragic death at age 27 cut her career woefully short, Amy Winehouse left a legacy of incredible music and helped jumpstart the British soul and pop scene in the early part of the 21st century. Amy owned and wore this Fred Perry polo shirt. Shortly before her death, Fred Perry created an Amy Winehouse collection in collaboration with the singer.
“Dimebag” Darrell Abbott rewrote the book on heavy metal guitar in the ‘90s with his band Pantera. Though he died in 2006, his shadow still looms large over the entire metal genre. He used this customized Washburn guitar on stage during the group’s 1994-1995 ‘Far Beyond Driven’ tour.
In addition to being the greatest electric guitarist who ever lived, Jimi Hendrix was a true style icon. The classic “psychedelic gypsy” look that was so popular in the late ‘60s is largely attributed to his personal aesthetic. Jimi owned this velvet vest at the height of the hippie movement in 1968.
It’s one thing to be a renowned songwriter, but it’s quite another thing to pen a tune that becomes a bona-fide holiday standard. John Lennon achieved that very rare place in history when he wrote the song “Happy Xmas (War is Over)” in 1971. John’s holiday-themed, anti-war song is now played alongside standards like “White Christmas” and “Silent Night” every holiday season. Legendary session drummer Jim Keltner contributed a winter atmosphere to the track with these sleigh bells.
Colombian pop superstar Shakira wore this bodysuit in her 2009 video for “Did It Again”. She donated it to the Hard Rock collection in exchange for a contribution to her “Pies Descalzos” charity. Shakira set up the charity in 1995 to help underprivileged children in Colombia and now feeds and educates over four thousand children in five schools across the country.
