So by now I’m sure you’ve seen pictures of my trip to Orlando with the Hard Rock Atlantic City here and on the 103.7 WMGM Rocks Facebook page as well. For starters, the private jet? French toast. Drinks. Pizza. Omelettes. Drinks. Spacious, first class accommodations? To fly any other way at this point will be disappointing lol! The Hard Rock does it right. Jeff Nolan, wow! I’ll just call him the music and memorabilia guru! I could hang with him 365 24/7!!! Land in Orlando. To Universal Studios. Lunch. More amazing stories about The Beatles to Buddy Holly to Stone Temple Pilots and much more!!! Tour of the exclusive John Lennon. Next, off the the Hard Rock Vault. Wow wow wow!!! The history in this building is mind blowing. From the original hand written lyrics of “Imagine”. Springsteen outfit from the ‘84 Born In The USA tour. Michael Jackson autographed white glove and Beat It red leather jacket. I held an Eddie Van Halen autographed and concert played guitar. Petty and Madonna yearbooks. The Vault has thousands and thousands of autographed guitars. Worn outfits from Lady Gaga to Freddie Mercury to Rob Halford to Elton John. Organ used by Pink Floyd to record everything from Animals to The Wall. Rare autographed items like a $2000 check that Tupac wrote to himself. Vinyl. The piano EVH wrote Right Now. Slash top hat from the Super Bowl. Simply mind blowing. Much will be at the Hard Rock Atlantic City, which will be the largest collection of music memorabilia at any Hard Rock property and on par with the RnR Hall of Fame and Grammy Museum. Back to the private jet. Delay because of thunder and lightning. Drinks. Pizza on the jet. Back in AC. I wanna go back lol!!! Definitely one of the coolest things I’ve ever got to do since my radio days started. Can not wait for the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City to open on June 28th. Thank you Hard Rock. Thank you Todd Moyer. Words really can not express my appreciation!
Pics included exclusive pins you only get if you get to tour the Rock Vault.Eddie Van Halen guitar from the 15/16 tour. Moscow Peace Festival poster (I have the PPV on VHS tapes). And yes, I found my man crush in the Vault.Butch Walker autographed Marvelous 3 cowboy hat.
So now we are a few short days away from the opening of the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City. A small piece (or should I say pieces) of Rock History will be permanantly displayed in South Jersey. You've had a little taste of what the Hard Rock has to offer with the Cafe being open for many years. As I stated earlier, this will be the largest Hard Rock display of music memorabilia in the world, on par with the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame and the Grammy Museum. From the shows and entertainment, the music history, the restaurants, and of course the gambling, a trip to the Hard Rock Atlantic City willnot just be a visit, but an experience especially for the music lover, I, for one, can not wait to enjoy!
