Johnny Christ

Musicman Stingray Bass

Avenged Sevenfold’s bassist, Johnny Christ, used this Stingray bass on the Taste of Chaos tour in ’08. Back in the day, Glenn Danzig’s guitarist was John Christ. Coincidence, or was your mind just blown?

Ron Blair

Framus Bass

Heartbreaker bassist Ron Blair has had one of the most unique journeys through the world of rock we’ve ever encountered. He was the original bass player for Tom and the boys and appeared on every album and tour through Hard Promises in ’82. Then he quit the group and was replaced by Howie Epstein. Flash forward 21 years – Howie has passed away and Ron rejoins the Heartbreakers after a hiatus of over two decades. That’s what we call a long, strange trip. Ron’s still gracing stages around the world with Mr. Petty and playing some extremely cool instruments – like this old Framus bass. He used it at Red Rocks theater in ’05.

Jason James

ESP Bass

Jason James, bassist for Welsh metal monsters Bullet For My Valentine, used this ESP bass on the 2008 Taste of Chaos tour.

Kevin Cornin

Velvet Pants

Ever notice how REO Speedwagon singer Kevin Cronin puts a superfluous vowel sound at the end of each line he sings? It’s almost like he’s speaking French. Go listen to “Keep On Loving You” (or pretty much any REO song) and you’ll see what we mean. "Heard it from a friend who-uh, heard it from a friend who-uh...” – it’s uncanny. This bizarre vocal tick has become a style for Kevin and we salute him for it. We’re not so sure if we can salute him for wearing these velvet pants on stage in ’02, though.

Laura Lynch

Cowboy Boots

Founding Dixie Chick Laura Lynch has become a sort of honky-tonk Pete Best. Though she was the group’s lead singer and bass player for years, she never got to enjoy any of the success the group achieved after kicking her out and replacing her with Natalie Manes. Don’t feel too bad for Laura, though. Her husband won the Texas lottery in ’95. That gave Laura about 29 million reasons to get over her brush with fame and fortune. She wore these boots in her days as a Dixie Chick.

Elliot Easton

Fender Lead II

The Cars’ brilliant guitarist, Elliot Easton, used this Fender Lead II on the song “Shake It Up” from the album of the same name. This model is nearly identical to the one Eric Clapton gave us in the ’70s, but this one’s lefty. Elliot’s a southpaw.

Melissa Etheridge

Fancy Leather Jacket

Ever notice how all Melissa Etheridge’s songs sound like super-grandiose anthems? The woman could sing the phone book and it’d sound like a call to arms. She’s just that good. Melissa rocked this leather jacket in the '90s.

Tom Hamilton

Stage-Worn Coat

Tom Hamilton rocked this black coat on stage with the mighty Aerosmith. It’s not flashy, but Tom never needed frilly jumpsuits to be the coolest guy in the room.

George Harrison

Handwritten Letter to a Fan

Throughout the Beatles’ heyday, George was always a prolific letter writer. A fan who wrote directly to him was likely to get a personal response – like this handwritten reply to a fan named Christine. George even took the time to send her a full set of Fab Four autographs. What a guy.

Tommy Iommi

Stage-Worn Jeans

When you’re the super-iconic guitarist for Black Sabbath, your jeans can’t be blue. Black is the color of metal. Everyone knows that.

Willie Nelson


The “Red Headed Stranger” wore this bandanna (can you picture Willie without one?) at the Hard Rock Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi in October ’08. After the show he donated it to our collection. Willie is the king.

Roy Orbison

Original Drawing

In 1953, Roy Orbison was enlisted by his high school yearbook staff to draw section dividers for the annual. This “Seniors” page is one of three in our collection. Clearly, Roy’s talents went beyond his angelic voice and brilliant songwriting.

Roy Orbison

Cool Suit

In the ’70s, Roy Orbison took his incredible songs, angelic voice, and unique charisma, wrapped it all in this killer black suit, stepped on stage, and showed how devastatingly badass he really was.

Buck Owens

American Guitar

Let’s make one thing crystal-clear: country music rules. We’re not talking about that slick redneck pop that comes out Nashville, we’re talking about the real thing. Johnny Cash, Hank Williams, Merle Haggard, George Jones, Loretta Lynn, Tammy Wynette, Patsy Cline – you get the picture. Our favorite, though, is undoubtedly Buck Owens. Much more than the charismatic host of Hee Haw, Buck pioneered a tough brand of country music that came straight out of Bakersfield, California and conquered the world. With Telecasters, Nudie suits and a heaping helping of ass-kicking abilities, Buck put Bakersfield at the forefront of the American music scene. His trademark red, white and blue acoustics are mega-iconic, and he was known to hand a few out to his friends. He gave this one to his buddy Nate in ’88.

Riders in the Sky

Ten-Gallon Hat

One of the Riders (we’re not sure which one) rocked this hat on tour in support of their debut album, Three on the Trail, in 1979.

Pat DiNizio

Rickenbacker 620

The Smithereens were a welcome diversion in the ’80s. There’s only so much cheesy synth-pop you can take, so a Jersey quartet that cranked up the amps and played some real rock ’n’ roll was like manna from Heaven. Main man Pat DiNizio rocked this red Rickenbacker 620 live and in the studio with the group, and it sounds amazing. The Smithereens were one of the very few bands that played Rickenbacker guitars cranked up through Marshall amps. It’s kind of a “heavy metal Beatles” sound.

Elliot Easton

Original Cars T-Shirt

Original concert shirts have become coveted mementos of rock’s golden age – and they command prices that make most folks wince. These original Cars shirts, from Candy-O to Heartbeat City, came from Elliot Easton’s personal collection.

Stevie Ray Vaughan

Snakeskin Cowboy Boots

It takes a special sort of swagger to rock a pair of snakeskin cowboy boots. That was never an issue for Stevie Ray Vaughan. The “Guitar Hurricane” owned these bad-boys in the late ’80s. For those of you keeping track of such things, they’re size 11 D.

Stevie Ray Vaughan

Maori Fish Hook Necklace

Stevie Ray Vaughan’s absolute mastery of blues guitar still elicits chills and jaw-dropped awe over a decade after his untimely death. To say that Stevie Ray is sorely missed is the definition of understatement. This Maori fish hook necklace is one of our most prized items of memorabilia. Stevie wore it often and was pictured on the cover of Guitar World magazine in ’88 wearing it proudly and looking damn good. Appropriately, the magazine’s headline read, “Blues Power!”
