Music Legends

It was tough getting back to the future today. My mind wondered when web traveling to a Cooper Owen's Auction being held April 19th at Madame Tussauds in London. Rock n Roll memorabilia so grand from a time that was defiantly simpler. The collection's catalog, ripe with details of psychedelic times, started slowly with Bowie in spandex on a 1971 poster and Bjork's Swan Dress worn at the Academy Awards.

Then the fabulous band promoter Bill Graham's name pop out with five posters featuring the likes of Big Brother and the Holding Company with Janis Joplin, Grass Roots, Quicksilver, Country Joe and the Fish playing with Buffalo Springfield, my eyes started to water. I flashed back and remembered my older brother dragging me along to my first festival to see some of these legends.

The list continued to fall deeper into history with cutting edge marketing ideas promoting the Dead, Traffic, Sinatra, Sex Pistols, Canned Heat, Vanilla Fudge, Little Stevie, Tull, Elvis and Costello, Morrison, Hendrix, Temptations, Beach Boys, Sony & Cher & Elton's fashions. You can relieve moments with Zappa, Bruce and Cream. Did you know the Rolling Stones and The Beatles performed one night together in 1964 at the Empire Pool Wembley? Lyrics to cufflinks to photos to guitars to gold records, this is the rare moment one can capture a bit from the past.

The Beatles are well represented here too with the original Clayco's film tape of the boys playing at Shea Stadium in New York, The Hollywood Bowl's bowl, Ringo's 1st photos with the group, George's Yogi book, Paul's Wings, to a 12 year olds school book titled 'Anthology' by John, which contains personally illustrated hand written poems that includes one about a Walrus and is expected to fetch $250,000.
