Townshend's smashed Gibson SG to be exhibited in Britain
This will include the Gibson SG electric guitar that Pete Townshend of The Who smashed on stage.
Items of clothing worn by other performers including Graham Nash, Jimi Hendrix and Joe Cocker will also be exhibited at Hard Rock Café London.
Sean Dee, vice president of Hard Rock International, commented: "It's an honour to have preserved these icons of music history and privilege to bring them to music fans in London."
Gibson itself has also marked the anniversary by praising the musicianship on show at the Woodstock Festival, with Carlos Santana, for example, commended for using his SG with "ferocious virtuosity".
Meanwhile, Pete Townshend was credited for leading The Who into "unconventional terrain" at the event, as this was where they first played sections of their rock opera Tommy.Posted on 3 Jun 2009 14:00 to category : Instruments News
