Annie Lennox

Zebra Gloves

Like David Bowie, Annie Lennox is one of rock’s true chameleons. She broke out with an arresting, androgynous look when Eurythmics took the pop world by storm in ’83 with “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)” and recalibrated her image with every subsequent release. Annie wore these gloves on stage during Eurythmics’ 1986 tour.

Bette Midler

Sequin Dress

For over 40 years, “The Divine Miss M” has set the standard for vocal excellence in the adult contemporary genre and also enjoyed massive success as an actress. She wore this outfit on stage during her 2004 ‘Kiss My Brass’ tour.

Bruce Springsteen

Black Vest

The Boss wore this vest on stage during his ‘Darkness on the Edge of Town’ tour in 1978.

Nina Hagen

Black Boot

German chanteuse Nina Hagen is one of those artists that absolutely defies easy categorization. She’s like an opera singer/punk rocker/performance artist/goth icon, but even all those descriptives fail to convey her wide-ranging talent. A much more simple and accurate description of Nina is that she’s a true original. She wore these boots on stage during her 1994-1995 tour.

Elton John


This microphone was used on stage at Wembley Stadium during the Live Aid concert on July 13th, 1985. It was signed by Elton John. Elton was the final performer before the all-star finale.

Elvis Presley


These incredible sunglasses were custom-made for Elvis in the 1970s. They feature “EP” in 14-karat gold and Elvis’ famous “TCB” logo. During his time in the army, Elvis was stationed right here in Germany. In fact, he met his wife Priscilla in here in 1959.

Jimi Hendrix

Embroidered Vest

Jimi owned this embroidered vest and later gave it to the guitarist for the Shirelles.

Kate Pierson

Beehive Wig

This amazing beehive wig was worn by B-52s vocalist Kate Pierson in the video for their 1992 hit “Is That You Mo-Dean?”


Satin Pumps

Madonna wore these white satin pumps on stage in 1995 during her world tour in support of ‘Like a Virgin’.

Mötley Crüe


This incredible custom instrument was built for Mötley Crüe guitarist Mick Mars by famous guitar builder Sammy Sanchez. Mick used it both on stage and in the studio.


Doubleneck Bass

Bassist Bobby Dall of “hair metal” legends Poison rocked this incredible doubleneck B.C. Rich bass on stage with the group during their ‘80s heyday. This instrument is unusual in that it features both an 8-string and a 5-string neck.

No Doubt

Red Boots

Gwen Stefani wore these boots on the cover of No Doubt’s breakthrough album – 1995’s ‘Tragic Kingdom’. A worldwide smash, ‘Tragic Kingdom’ spawned seven singles and helped establish Gwen as a global megastar.

Black Eyed Peas

Brown Jacket

Black Eyed Peas frontman will.i.am can be seen wearing this sweater on the cover of their debut album – 1998’s ‘Behind the Front’. The album was released a few years before the group added Fergie to their lineup and has a much more traditional hip hop sound than the subsequent albums that catapulted them to pop superstardom.


Fender Bass

X emerged from the fertile late-‘70s punk scene in Los Angeles with a rockabilly and country-influenced sound, deeply poetic lyrics and a totally unique approach to vocal harmony. Throughout their 35-year career, they’ve been critically acclaimed and wildly influential. Bassist/vocalist John Doe used this vintage Fender Precision Bass on stage with the band.


Leather Coat

Germany has a long history of amazing heavy metal bands, but Accept may be the best of the bunch. Originally from Solingen, for over 30 years they’ve delivered incredible rock ‘n’ roll – and their 1983 anthem, “Balls to the Wall”, is a classic of the genre. This leather coat was owned and worn by bassist Peter Baltes.


Fender Guitar

This battered Precision Bass was Accept bassist Peter Baltes’ main instrument for over 30 years. Originally black, years of road wear wore it down to the raw wood. Peter used this instrument to record Accept’s iconic anthem “Balls to the Wall” and used it in the song’s video as well.
