When the Play it Loude exhibit of iconic instruments was on display at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art earlier this year, it included some of Jimmy Page's guitars and stage costumes, along with a video of him demonstrating some of his iconic riffs.
The exhibit is now on display at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland and includes the video, but not the guitars and accessories, as Page has reportedly asked for them back. No word from Page or the Hall on why.
Among the instruments that did make it from New York to Cleveland are:
- Eric Clapton’s Martin acoustic guitar used on MTV Unplugged
- Jerry Garcia’s “Wolf” guitar
- Jimi Hendrix’s hand-decorated “Love Drops” guitar
- Keyboard John Paul Jones used to record “Stairway to Heaven”
- Eddie Van Halen’s performance rig from 2013
- Steve Miller's psychedelic painted guitar
- Keith Richards' hand-painted Les Paul used onBeggars Banquet
- One of Pete Townshend's smashed guitars
Play it Loud is on display through September 13th, 2020.
