Amy Winehouse

Pink Dress

This pink dress, which is so small it’s virtually a corset, was owned and worn by Amy Winehouse. She donated it to the Hard Rock at the Nelson Mandela birthday concert in London on June 27th, 2008. Despite being fodder for tabloid exploitation due to her total rock ’n’ roll lifestyle, Amy was Britain’s best musical export of the last couple decades. If you don’t think Back to Black was a great album, there’s something seriously wrong with you. The girl was a soulful powerhouse whose tragic death at age 27 left a void in the pop world that has yet to be filled.

T Rex

Guitar

This guitar is an absolutely perfect piece of memorabilia. It’s rare, beautiful, and it belonged to a legend. This is a Veleno Original built for Marc Bolan around 1970 and is one of the very first John Veleno ever made. These guitars are constructed entirely out of aluminum and are amazing pieces of functional art. Most examples have humbucking pickups, but Bolan’s has DeArmond "Dynasonic" single coils - like a Gretsch. We’ve never seen another Veleno with this pickup configuration. John Veleno made less than 200 of these in his career and the vast majority of them wound up in the hands of legendary players. The engraver that John enlisted to etch Bolan's name on this guitar misspelled his first name. John was mortified, but Marc thought it was cool and elected to keep the guitar as-is. We’ve played more incredible vintage guitars than most people will ever see, but this one stands out as truly special.

Bob Dylan

Jacket

We have quite a few examples of Nudie Cohn’s amazing custom clothing, but this one is the best. It was made for Bob Dylan during his legendary Rolling Thunder Revue tour and he wore it occasionally during his late ’70s born-again phase. It’s one of the very few tangible artifacts from this time in Bob’s career. Later, Dylan gave it to country iconoclast (and Texas gubernatorial candidate) Kinky Friedman.

The Grateful Dead

Expense Log

For most people, the Grateful Dead are an all-or-nothing proposition. There’s just not a lot of gray area when it comes to the Dead. One thing is for certain, though – 1970’s Festival Express tour was absolutely amazing and the Dead rocked it like their lives depended on it. The tour took place in three Canadian cities and the entire entourage traveled by train. This unique arrangement allowed for some incredible impromptu jams in between concert dates. Featuring the Dead, Janis Joplin, The Band, and a host of other luminaries, Festival Express was like the Canadian Woodstock. This is the Dead’s road expense log from the tour. As great as all the groups were, they were consistently blown off the stage by Buddy Guy, who was at the absolute peak of his power at the time.

The Beatles

Letter

Anyone who’s given our collection a halfway-decent perusal will notice that we have an incredible assortment of letters from the Beatles. They’re all treasures, but this one is a favorite. George wrote this note from Hamburg in ’62 to his pal (and fanatical early Beatles fan) Susan Houghton with incredibly detailed (and facetious) numbered instructions on how to wash and polish his car. It’s a great glimpse into the dry wit of a young George. The best bit, however, is step 7 – “Proceed to 20 Forthlin Rd. with about 6 buckets of dirty, muddy, greasy water, where a shiny Ford Classic will be seen. Spread contents of the buckets evenly, so as to leave a nice film of muck over the car”. 20 Forthlin Road was the home of Paul McCartney.

Jimi Hendrix

Dragon Shirt

This is one of the best pieces of Hendrix wardrobe we own, and we own a lot. Jimi wore this Asian-style shirt on stage many times in ’67 – at the Hollywood Bowl on August 18th, the Fifth Dimension club in Michigan on August 15th, and at the Saville Theater in London on August 27th. Jimi was scheduled to do two shows at the Saville that night, but the second was canceled due to the death of Beatles manager (and Saville owner) Brian Epstein.

Slayer

Guitar

Kerry King is one of the most ferocious guitarists around and his group, Slayer, are the undisputed kings of thrash metal. A Slayer gig is one of the most visceral experiences in rock. Virtuoso instrumental prowess, blistering volume, and a pervasive feeling of menace. Pure catharsis. Kerry used this badass BC Rich during Slayer’s Christ Illusion tour. Kerry has donated nearly all of his instruments from the last two world tours to the Hard Rock.

The Beatles

Guitar Strap

When the Beatles started to become a worldwide phenomenon, anything associated with the group was a sure-fire money maker. That’s why legendary British equipment manufacturer, Vox, gave the lads anything they asked for. They were in a bind, however, when John requested a genuine snakeskin guitar strap (though common today, such a thing was unheard of in ’64). That’s why Vox came up with the “Python” model. Its interlocking metal scales are, obviously, snakeskin inspired. John used this strap throughout the Beatles’ years on the road. It’s pretty amazing how “heavy metal”-looking this thing is for an early Beatles piece. Vox sold tons of these expensive straps to Beatles fans all over the world and it’s still manufactured to this day.

MC Hammer

Outfit

Holy moly. Stop – Hammer time. The man himself wore this dynamite outfit in his 1990 video for “Dancing Machine” – a cover of the Jackson 5 classic.

Jimi Hendrix

Shirt

This is one of the best pieces of Hendrix wardrobe we own, and we own a lot. Jimi wore this Asian-style shirt on stage many times in ’67 – at the Hollywood Bowl on August 18th, the Fifth Dimension club in Michigan on August 15th, and at the Saville Theater in London on August 27th. Jimi was scheduled to do two shows at the Saville that night, but the second was canceled due to the death of Beatles manager (and Saville owner) Brian Epstein.

Frank Sinatra

Microphone

When you’re the mega-iconic Chairman of the Board, a regular microphone will never suffice to amplify your dulcet tones. That’s why Sinatra used this extra-fancy, gold-plated AKG microphone for his live performances. It’s even inscribed with his name – as if anyone could ever doubt whose mic this was.

Steve Vai

Custom Guitar

As if we needed further proof that Steve Vai is an alien. How can a human play two opposing guitar necks simultaneously? It just ain’t fair to us mortals (attention guitar nerds: we know that Michael Angelo Batio did this before Vai, but he’s an alien, too). Steve put a lot of miles on this crazy axe. He debuted it in David Lee Roth’s 1988 video “Just Like Paradise” and used it with both Whitesnake and G3. He autographed it at the Hard Rock in Orlando when he was appearing with Zappa Plays Zappa in ’07.

Van Halen

Speaker Cabinets

These battered, beautiful 4x12 speaker cabinets were built for Van Halen’s 2004 world tour. This tour marked the return of Sammy Hagar after the ill-fated Van Halen III tour with Gary Cherone on vocals. When we acquired these cabinets, we immediately plugged some of our Marshall heads into them and pissed off the neighbors with our ham-fisted renditions of “Eruption”.

Woody Guthrie

Guitar

He was the quintessential American folk poet and the archetype for all the politically aware troubadours that followed. Woodrow Wilson “Woody” Guthrie was that important. No Woody equals no Dylan. Busker, hobo, depression-era poet, and plain-spoken people’s champion, Guthrie wrote the lexicon of American folk. This ’29 Gibson was one of Woody’s and it was given by his family to actor David Carradine, who portrayed Guthrie in the film Bound for Glory. It does indeed kill fascists and we're proud to own it.

Elton John

Toaster

On St. Valentine’s Day 1984, Elton John surprised the world by marrying Renate Blauel – a young German recording engineer who had worked on his Breaking Hearts album the previous year. This toaster was a wedding gift from his producer, Chris Thomas. Chris is a true legend in pop music and has worked with everyone from the Beatles to Pink Floyd to the Sex Pistols. The inscription on the toaster reads, “you can choose between muffins and crumpets”. Elton and Renate divorced just four years later.
