Re: Funny Hard Rock Cafe stuff
The Hard Rock gets its memorabilia primarily in three ways:
1 - Actual things donated [or even sold] by the artists.
2 - Actual things bought from reputable dealers, etc.
3 - Whatever they can get their hands on to have signed by artists [backstage; at press conferences; meet-n-greets, etc.]
#3 is how you see unrelated, low-budget gear with top names on 'em.
