Hard Rock Hotel Penang
The story of the birth of Hard Rock International’s memorabilia collection is itself a part of music history. The collection was started when Eric Clapton, a regular customer at the original Hard Rock Cafe London, asked the staff if he could hang his guitar on the wall to mark his favorite bar stool as “his spot.” They did, and one week later, a package from The Who’s Pete Townshend arrived with a guitar and a note bearing the message, “Mine’s as good as his! Love, Pete.”
Hard Rock International is the world’s original curator of music memorabilia with the most far-reaching collection. The 81,000+ piece collection, which celebrates new and legendary music icons, is the world’s greatest collection of music memorabilia. Hard Rock memorabilia is showcased at Hard Rock Cafes, Hard Rock Live venues and Hard Rock Hotels and Casinos around the world. A full-time staff oversees all aspects of the Hard Rock collection – from research and initial procurement of an artifact to its cataloging and maiden installation at a Hard Rock location. Among the pieces in the collection are photos, guitars and other instruments, clothing and costumes, platinum and gold LPs, posters and album art and other rare artifacts. Hard Rock updates the memorabilia displays to ensure customers have the best rock music memorabilia and entertainment experience.
For the die hard music fans, check out more than 500 pieces of unparalleled rock n’ roll memorabilia from both local and international artists adorning the walls of the Hard Rock Hotel and Hard Rock Cafe Penang. These collections are also showcased through the ‘E-Wall’ comprising of 8 screens located at the lobby.
