Hard Rock Cafe Seville Memorabilia
This Yamaha BB-300 bass is a true piece of alternative rock history. It belonged to Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan and was played on stage by him at the very first Smashing Pumpkins show in 1988. Billy played this bass while James played guitar. As the group expanded, the instrument became bassist D’arcy Wretzky’s stage backup for all the early Smashing Pumpkins gigs.
With timeless hits like “Peace Train”, “Father and Son”, “Wild World” and “Moonshadow”, Cat Stevens was one of the defining artists of the 1970s singer-songwriter era. Though still an active musician, he has dedicated much of his life to philanthropic causes. Cat wore this embroidered jacket in the early ‘70s at the height of his career.
