Take Home Your Favorite Rock Star

Rock ´n’ Roll inspires your life’s soundtrack: love, anger, and absolute raging good times always bring you searching for old concert ticket stubs and that favorite album hiding deep in your abundant record collection. That’s the muse behind the Rock Art Show – a traveling reminder of the power of music. The collection features everything from handwritten lyrics by iconic bands, pictures by famed gonzo photographers like Baron Wolman (original Rolling Stone staff photographer, mind you), along with artwork of everyone from the golden Rat Pack era to whoever’s on your Ipod right now.

But the coolest things about this traveling exhibit is that (a) much of the work was actually created by famous musicians, so you can voyeuristically enjoy snippets of life through their eyes, and (b) it’s totally free.

Don’t miss “Generations” by the Who’s founding bass player John Entwistle. In it he creates cartoonish versions of himself, Keith, Pete, and Roger each decked out in the decade suiting him best. But the piece that’s garnered the most attention along the tour has been a work of pop art by Ringo Starr called “Is It Time.” Everything is available to buy, so you can take it home and hang it above your record player, CD player, or Ipod – ya’ know, depending on your g-g-g-g-g-generation. (A portion of all proceeds goes towards the Susan G. Koman Breast Cancer Foundation, so you’re doing your part to save the ta-tas.) Check the whole thing out in the alcove adjacent to the Hard Rock Café, at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino (One Seminole Way, Hollywood), but go now – the tour’s only here through Sunday.
