Rock stars at the Metropolitan Museum of Art 5
They're some of the most iconic instruments from the rock 'n' roll era, played by some of the most artful and timeless musicians, and now they're being given a stage all their own. Opening this week at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City is a new exhibition, "Play It Loud: Instruments of Rock & Roll," featuring such rock relics as the guitars of Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, Jimi Hendrix and Bruce Springsteen; Jerry Lee Lewis' baby grand piano; and drum sets for The Beatles and The Who. Anthony Mason walks us through a treasure trove of musical history, and talks with musicians Steve Miller and Don Felder of The Eagles about what these instruments mean.

Hendrix white strat at woodstock !. Worth the price of admission . Doesn't matter which guitarist you speak too. Even Don Felder says " Hendrix playing guitar was in a whole another orbit" Master of the stratocaster

Bothers me the Beatles font doesn't match on the drum.

I might be mistaken but the lettering on Ringo’s drums on display, looks like a thinner font than the drums shown on the Ed Sullivan clip.

Baby Boomers deserve it. It seems like higher quality people chose careers in popular music back then, that's how they became rock stars in the first place.
