Rock fans, you may have to make a pilgrimage to New York to see some of the coolest instruments in rock history on display. New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art's "Play It Loud" exhibit opened today. This is an impressive lineup. They have Ringo Starr's first Ludwig drum set, which he bought in 1963, featuring the same drum head used on The Beatles' "Ed Sullivan Show" appearance in 1964, Jimi Hendrix white Stratocaster that he played at Woodstock, Chuck Berry's "Johnny B. Goode" guitar with the traveling tags still on it, Eddie Van Halen's original "Frankenstein" guitar, Don Felder's double neck guitar he uses on the solo of "Hotel California," the Holy Grail, Jimmy Page's "Stairway To Heaven" six string acoustic, and so much more!
"Play It Loud" at New york's Metropolitan Museum of Art, now through October 1, 2019. Listen to Jimmy talk about the guitar and watch Don Felder do his "Hotel California" solo on his double neck that he's loaning to the museum.
