African Dancer Painting
The Birth of Cool, Kind of Blue, Bitches Brew; everyone knows that Miles Davis was one of America's true musical gifts to the world. His creative powers didn't stop with music, though. Miles was also a prolific painter. He stated in earnest in the early '80s, shortly after finally kicking a devastating heroin addiction, and was an active painter and sketch artist until his death in 1991. This piece, entitled African Dancer, is acrylic and mixed-media on paper. It's one of our favorites
Gibson Chet Atkins Classical Electric
This nylon-string Gibson Chet Atkins belonged to Slowhand and he undoubtedly put its unique features to great use. On June 24th, 1999, however, he auctioned this piece and many other of his legendary axes to raise money for The Crossroads Center – the drug rehab Clapton owns in Antigua.
When Nancy Wilson’s romantic relationship with Heart’s brilliant guitarist Roger Fisher came to an end, it also ended Roger’s time in the group (only Fleetwood Mac can make that sort of thing work). This put the spotlight and pressure squarely on the shoulders of Heart’s remaining lead player, Howard Leese. Howard stepped up big-time, though, and led the group through some of their biggest commercial successes. He commissioned Ovation guitars to custom build this Adamas acoustic in 1979 for stage use on the Dog and Butterfly tour. Later, he used it in the studio on the Bebe Le Strange album.
Wenzll Double Bass
Back in the old days, when MTV still played music videos, the Stray Cats were like an island of coolness in a sea of vapid, self-conscious new wave hipsters. They were instrumental in reintroducing the raw, simple pleasures of real rock ’n’ roll to the masses. This was a very good thing. Bassist Lee Rocker anchored Brian Setzer and Slim Jim Phantom on this Wenzll Kohler electric double bass.
