AC/DC

Schoolboy Outfit

Angus Young’s trademark schoolboy outfit has become such a part of his persona that he gets them made in velvet. That a middle-aged man can continue to live out his adolescent dreams on stages throughout the world whilst sporting a velvet schoolboy outfit is one of the many reasons rock 'n' roll rules. Angus wore this on stage with the mighty AC/DC.

John Lennon

Corduroy Jacket

Quite possibly the single most important artist of the classic rock era, John Lennon set the template for creative freedom in rock music and his shadow still looms large today. He owned and wore this corduroy jacket in the mid ‘60s.

Elton John

Platform Boots

Equally as renowned for his over-the-top fashion as for his incredible music, Sir Elton John knows how to put on a spectacle. These amazing platform boots were part of a Statue of Liberty costume he wore on stage in the ‘70s.

Bay City Rollers

Yellow Sweater

In the mid ‘70s, Scotland’s own Bay City Rollers were at the absolute top of the pop mountain with a string of smash hits and a worldwide fan base of wide-eyed teenagers. Frontman Les McKeown owned and wore this sweater.

Keith Richards

Snakeskin Jacket

A snakeskin jacket seems almost as rock ’n’ roll as Keith Richards himself. Keith rocked this jacket during the Stones’ 1978 ‘Some Girls’ tour. It was part of MTV’s “Museum of Unnatural History” exhibition in 1989.

The Clash

Zippered Pants

Clash bassist Paul Simonon’s impact on the world of fashion is gigantic, but strangely unsung. He was largely responsible for the English punk dress code that still resonates with fashion designers today. These zippered pants are straight from his wardrobe.

The Who

Outfit

The Who’s mega-iconic guitarist, Pete Townshend, wore this military-style outfit in the 1975 film, ‘Tommy’. He can be seen wearing it in the film’s various holiday camp scenes.

Justin Timberlake

Vinyl T-shirt

Though he got his start during the late-‘90s “boy band” craze with *N Sync, Justin Timberlake quickly asserted himself as a bona-fide pop phenomenon and solo superstar. Now into his third decade as a top star, Justin has wowed audiences worldwide with his skills as a performer, producer and actor. Justin wore this Delicious Vinyl t-shirt on stage.

Pink Floyd

Bass Guitar

In the hands of Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters, this vintage Fender Precision Bass bore witness to some of the most important moments in rock. Roger used it extensively during Floyd’s early ‘70s “golden age”. This instrument was part of the Pink Floyd arsenal when they were recording and performing such iconic albums as Meddle, Obscured by Clouds and the immortal Dark Side of the Moon. Roger later gifted this bass to a carpenter who had worked on his home.

Big Country

Gold Top Guitar

With hits like “In a Big Country” and “Fields of Fire”, Big Country carried the torch for Scottish rock bands during the early ‘80s MTV era. This 1981 Gibson Les Paul was owned by frontman Stuart Adamson. During his short life, Stuart proved himself as a truly gifted singer, songwriter and artist.

Bob Dylan

Stratocaster

The quintessential troubadour/poet, Bob Dylan’s influence is nearly impossible to overstate. Johnny Cash, John Lennon and Jimi Hendrix all worshiped the man – and anyone writing popular music with a lyrical content beyond “you’re my baby” owes him a debt. Touted as the voice of a generation in the ’60s, Bob was instrumental in dragging the intellectual coffee house folk scene into the electric future. His intuitive, humorous, stream-of-consciousness lyrics and unusual vocal style may have owed a lot to Woody Guthrie, but Dylan forged a path all his own. The line from Depression-era protest singers to the Beat poets to psychedelia runs straight through Bob. This amazing Fender Stratocaster was custom-built for Dylan. It features a Telecaster neck and was used on his 1988 album, ‘Down In the Groove”.

Kiss

Washburn Guitar

When the rock ’n’ roll superheroes of Kiss took the stage in Lafayette, Louisiana, on August 18, 2000, Paul “Starchild” Stanley used this custom Washburn guitar to whip the crowd into the kind of frenzy only a Kiss concert can inspire. Paul was gracious enough to donate twenty guitars to the Hard Rock collection after the band’s 2000 tour.

The Beatles

Artist Palette

The Beatles’ original bass player, Stu Sutcliffe, was an incredibly talented painter, but he struggled to learn to play bass. He left the group in 1961 to focus on his art career, but died tragically the following year. He was only 21 years old. This paint-stained artist’s palette was Stu's constant companion in 1959 while he was studying at Liverpool's College of Art. It's one of our most treasured rock ‘n’ roll artifacts.

Iggy and The Stooges

Gibson Guitar

This gorgeous Gibson Les Paul was given to guitarist James Williamson of punk progenitors the Stooges when the band was inducted into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame in 2010. James subsequently used it in the studio on the track “Beat That Guy”. It was signed by the entire band – including legendary frontman Iggy Pop.
