On my summer vacation, I relaxed. I enjoyed the beautiful weather. And then our clan hit the road for an end-of summer jaunt that included a stop here:
It was a blast. Saw all sorts of nifty artifacts. I’ve posted some photos below. Scroll away:
Remnants of Otis Redding’s plane
Joey Ramone’s jacket
The coolest pair of sunglasses. Ever.
John Lee Hooker’s guitar
The sign from Yasgur’s Farm (“By the time we got to Woodstock…”)
Pete Townshend’s guitar
I need an outfit like this
John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin)
Janis Joplin’s car
The Beatles’ “In My Life”
John Lennon’s Sgt. Pepper outfit
The Who drum head
John Entwistle bass
Bruce Springsteen guitar used in the recording of the Devils and Dust album
Randy Bachman guitar
RUSH artifacts (finally!)
Mick Jagger ’70s stage outfit
Mick Jagger Steel Wheels-era stage outfit
Keith Richards’ guitar
Charlie Watts drum kit (some of it, at least)
And outside the RNR HOF, there was this tour bus that belonged to Johnny Cash. Very. very cool.
Picked up a couple of souvenir shirts at the great museum store on the way out. All in all, a great stop on our road trip. Highly recommended.
