The incredibly nice folks at Hard Rock gave us a chance to peek behind the scenes at their memorabilia warehouse. Wow, what an experience. With 700 guitars, racks of clothes, shelves of gold records, pianos, cannons, electric chairs, and statues -- it was an incredible sight. I start at the Hard Rock Cafe with Jeff Nolan, who wrote the text for the Hard Rock Memo site. From there we go to the Hard Rock corporate office, and then take a look at the memorabilia warehouse. Going through the warehouse on video would have taken hours, so I put up 100+ of my favorite photos, Part 1 here, Part 2 here

While I was sitting with Patrick Colbert looking at the photo of Jimi Hendrix's black Gibson Les Paul in the video I mentioned that I've never seen Jimi Hendrix playing a Les Paul. Later they showed me a picture of Hendrix playing a black Les Paul along with a story about who borrowed it from him at Woodstock. Of course. Hard Rock is the Smithsonian of music history. Smiley

    But I didn't see Chris Chike's Guitar Hero guitar - is that in the secret secret secret room? Smiley
