Hard Rock Cafe Denver Memorabilia
Toboggan from HELP!
Here's the oak toboggan used in the Fab Four's second film, HELP! An entertaining bit of slapstick with a very dubious plotline, HELP! was filmed shortly after Bob Dylan had introduced The Beatles to the charms of marijuana. They were massively stoned throughout the making of the film- which certainly made this toboggan a favorite prop. Go back and watch the movie. They're as wasted as Willie Nelson at a hemp rally.
Hunter S. Thompson
Gonzo journalist Dr. Hunter S. Thompson was more rock ’n’ roll than 99% of the self-important, pampered, and prissy idiots who call themselves rock stars. Completely creative, ferociously stoned, packing heat, and totally unique, Hunter was one of the great American writers- right up there with Twain, Hemingway, or Faulkner- but he was way cooler than any of them. This was his typewriter. The abuse he heaped upon it would make Pete Townshend blush.
