    I went to this exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, my wife and I had a great time. They didn't have everything I would want to see but it was still a great afternoon. I took a couple of picks of the belt rash on some guitars that we've seen lot's of picture of.

    Thanks for posting that, awesome stuff. I liked your pan of Keith Emerson's rig; I never knew he used ARP gear as well as Moog. You learn something every day :aok

    Yep; I read Keith's auto biography and was using ordinary kitchen knives for the trick. This was in The Nice era. One of their roadies brought some of his dagger collection and gave them to Keith, saying he needed "proper knives" if he was to continue the trick. The roadies name was Lemmy Kilmister...

    Visited it in June. Worth going. Even my wife who is not much into guitars liked the exhibit very much. It could have been even bigger.

    I really liked the 4 videos interviews (Tom Morello was very interesting) and the companion rig in display.

    I believe its the real one. I really enjoyed the whole exhibition.
    I liked the videos a lot too!

    I was shocked how often I saw this:
    Collection of Perry A. Margouleff
    Man that's some collection!

    Same story I heard. Actually my memory says I heard it from a Lemmy interview and I believe it. It suits both of them. Thanks for bringing that up...
